Art was my honorary father. I taught with Carol in Elk Grove and they always treated me like family. We shared many times together at their house. When I moved to St Louis and Pittsburgh we kept in close contact. They spent 5 wonderful days with me on a trip they took out East. We had such fun sightseeing and being together. They embraced my family as their family too. Art will always hold a very special place in my heart. I know that Carol and he are together again. Love you both so much. My heart is sad but I am so glad they were in my life for over 44 years.
