My wife and I want to extend our sympathy to Art's family. I knew Art at Princeton and later as a classmate at Harvard Business School. He was a fine man and a good friend who helped us celebrate our marriage as an usher at our wedding fifty-seven years ago.

So sorry for your loss Andrea. I remember his helpfulness when I was at Dana Hall with you and having spent my career in Financial Planning, MFS is well know to all of us at Morgan Stanley. I hope to catch up with you sometime.

My thoughts are with your family. It was a nostalgic loss for me - your mom, Molly, and I grew up across the street from one another and were dear friends as children. I did not know that she, too, was gone. Please accept my prayers.

How sad to read of Arthur's passing. My strong thoughts and prayers are with all of you and him! I was privileged to provide investment research to Art and all of his great associates for 30 plus years. MFS has long been a superb organization and I treasure the friendships I have had over those many years. Art was one of the best. The picture shows again that great smile which was always there. He was one of the classiest fellows I ever met, incisive, friendly, and an astute investor. So many of the older group have gone from us. But it brings joy to us to recall some of the memories of them. As an aside I grew up in Brookline and the church , St Paul's, I'm fairly certain, was built by my father's family many , many years ago.

God bless him!!!
