Although I did not know your loved one personally, I am truly sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in Gods promise found at Revelation 21:4- “And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more…”

Molly Horn McHale sends this memory.
Tell them that I remember running the soda machine at the pig roast and Art wanting a “suicide” – all the sodas mixed together. I had heard of other kids doing this but hadn’t ever tried it myself. I thought it was funny that he wanted it!! He was a really sweet man!! I didn’t remember that Laurie was his sister. Tell her hi for me!
I can’t imagine how many lives this good guy influenced. Enid Horn
