    Art, I missed getting my hug from you when you were sitting in the box at the Crap table working. I came back looking for you later, but guess your shift was over during Labor Day weekend, and could not get you off my mind during my road trip back to Atlanta on Labor Day as I could tell you didn’t look well, at all. I waved at you as I walked by, but I sensed and observed you didn’t appear to be your usual smiling self. I hoped I could offer my assistance in any way possible once I returned this weekend, but I guess, even as a “CPA” my calculations were a wee bit off and God had the final say and took you on home, so I missed the final opportunity to be graced with our usual hug, smiles, kind words of wisdom during my crap table visits, and the pieces of candy you always had handy for me if I wanted something sweet. You are missed, Art, as you were a person I always looked forward to seeing during my monthly visits from ATL. God bless you, Art. The good thing is…You are out of pain and misery, and, most importantly, am sure you are in God’s hands forever more. I miss you already and I was crushed to hear the news Monday evening…. Goldstrike will never be the same.
