I worked at M Ecker back in the 70's. Art was a great guy and hard worker. Deepest sympathies to Jan and her family.

Dear Ethel, Jan, and family,
Art was a prince of a man and I know he will be greatly missed - not only by his family and friends, but by people like me, from the Beth Shalom community who spent so many years praying together, enjoying kiddush together and simply exchanging a warm Shabbat Shalom. Love, Susie Diamond
