I rode my bike past Sharmar on May 13, but I had just riden 30 miles, so I postponed my visit to see Art. Now, it’s too late, but he has taught me a valuable lesson in his dying, that I should have learned a long time ago. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can accomplish today. My prayers are with the family; I enjoyed knowing this very positive individual.
OUR THOUGHTS & PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU.
LOVE ALWAYS YOUR FRIENDS,
