    My Grandpa was a great man, who will be greatly missed. He always had a big laugh and bright smile when you were around him. I will miss all the stories that you would tell me about when you and grandma were younger.
    Hopefully he will be at home with the rest of the family that has recently gone before him. Love and miss you always Jenny Broeders

    I will always remember the twinkle in the eye and the hearty laugh whenever Art greeted me. He often made me feel like I was one of his own. God bless his soul!
