Dear Barbara, Kelly & Jill – I am so sorry for your loss. Art was a wonderful person, and we always enjoyed when Art & you would come down here. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love you all!
How sad we are of Art’s passing..he was a great friend and fellow engineer of mine at IBM Owego for many years…we had good times and many laughs both at work and golfing and having dinner with our wives…We will miss him so…our hearts go out to Barbara and the family….he is in god’s hands now…
Condolences to Barbara and the family on your loss. I worked with Art during my 30+ years at IBM. Those years were some of my favorite memories. May the Peace of Christ be with you all.
