    Dear Rob, Tor & Julie,
    So sorry for your loss. 🙁
    I have spent time with Art in Vancouver, Kelowna, and at our place in Phoenix and each time we hung out, I was taken by his sense of humor, his kind heart, his love of animals, and his love for you three!
    Sending my condolences during this sad time.
    Much love,
    Lori xoxo

  • Tara says:

    It’s not that I knew ART well. but to see the happy and supportive husband and father in the eyes of those he loved. Truly a treasure lost. Warmth and love to all who miss him today and tender tears for the coming memories of cherished times.
