I love Art dearly and still miss him to this day. he shared a lot of laughs together, as we were College classmates at Brooks College and also ride shared every morning together for 18 months. Art was a great Artist and a kind soul. I always felt that he was the Dad in his family because he always wanted to protect his Mom as well as his sister. His sister Alex was his world. Art always talked about his Mom\’s spagetthi, he always made me rush home that day if he knew she was cooking that night. When his Mom gave him that St Christopher medallion he felt so happy and blessed with that gift that he talk and talk and talked about all day. Art, I love you and I still miss you and you will always have a special place in my heart. To your Mom and your sister I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I really am sorry. with much love and blessings Danielle D. Callas
