We lived next door to Art and Carol for 7 years. They were wonderful neighbors. Art would call our dog over so he could give him treats from his garage. He would mow our lawn when my husband traveled for work knowing how busy I was with my kids. He would help us clear our driveway of mountains of snow several winters. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Art was just a wonderful guy, and we loved him.

Love, The John Family
