  • Thinking of Uncle Art today and how he was kind, patient, and fun. He was always very tolerant of us "city folk" spending weeks "helping out" on the farm. Some of my best memories are of those Vermont summers; as seen in the attached photo, he even shared the experience with my very young son many years later. Although his passing hurts and is sad, memories of the days spent with him and his family will always be in my heart ... he was a good man and a wonderful Uncle. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim, Jerry, and the rest of the family. Love, Gary and Lisa Daer
