Hello Sherrie and Pat and family…First I was so sorry to hear of Arts death and was sorry that I could not be there for the service…I sent a card and note to your dads address but it was returned to me, so tried to call his number and that line would not go through so I am here with my many thoughts and prayers with all of you and did know we were all thinking of you. Hope this finds you adjusting to life without such a great jolly guy….We had a lot of good times with the Delta folks. Keep in touch and best to all in this time of sorrow…Love Joan (Bo”s wife Delta

We are so sorry for your loss ñ and that is what it isÖa loss of a very fine gentleman. He represented what a dad should beÖtaking care of his family, having a somewhat stern demeanor in dealing with issues, but a heart as soft as cotton! We did enjoy his sense of humorÖas much as he could have dealing with FOUR women in the house :):) We love you! Ella and Jerry Surrette

Sherry and Pat… In the short time I knew your Dad, I knew him to be a wonderful Father, a devoted husband, and a fine gentleman. Those qualities will carry his legacy, as well as his memory, forward. Keep his memory alive, and know that someday you will be with him again… and with your beloved Mom and sister Lynn. Peace, Love, and Comfort to both of you.

My deepest sympathy to Pat, Sherry and the entire family for your loss. Art (BeBe) was an incredible person. He lived a full and exciting life during his airline career and loved what he did. He also loved his family to a fault. I always respected and admired BeBe and have so many great memories of our conversations. He was interesting, intelligent, honest and funny as hell. While it is sad to lose Art, I hope we can all congratulate him on a long and wonderful life, and I can just hear Mattie saying “oh Art”. You guys are in my prayers. John

in heaven with his dearly beloved wife (your Mother). May God infold both of you in his arms and lead you thought the next couple of weeks. We love you.
