My husband and I wish to extend our deepest sympathy to Artie's family. May he rest in peace. John and I met him at Artie's place. We looked forward to seeing him on the end stool at the counter. My grandchildren attended the school next door and looked forward to going to Artie's at Halloween in their costumes. He will be in our prayers. Roz and John Tryder.
