Dearest Art,
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful memories, laughs, and wise insights to life in central Illinois. You were there along with John and Marge Samek, Glen Clayburgh, Ralph Martin, Carl North, and of course my Dad all of those Friday nights at Dad's store Outdoor Sports, and those memories of good times have left a lasting impression on me that will not fade. I miss those times and I will miss you. Rest in peace. There's a fresh pot of coffee and some good friends waiting for you...
