    Although i cannot attend the service, my deep thoughts are with Art’s family today. We have lost a good friend. Always one who would greet me at Church service in the morning and talk me up with confidence on the hardwood playing basketball down at Central. Art was a great friend.He was kind of a gym rat who was iconic and I will never forget times we spent on the court.
    With sympathy,
    Bobby Little
