Art's Memorial Service

To all of Art's Friends and Family,

April 16, 2009. Art left this world early this morning. I am full of relief and joy and some serious exhaustion. It's all good. We, who will miss him, are the lucky ones. He was an amazing man, who will continue to part of my life forever.

There will be a memorial service for Art on Tuesday, April 21 at 4:30pm at Windward School in the gymnasium.

11350 Palms Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90066

And here's a link to the school.

And here's an online map from Google.

    I am full of sorrow and grief to hear that Art died; yet relieved that he is no longer suffering in pain. However, the pain for you and the kids I'm sure feels like it's beginning anew. It would be amazing to attend his memorial as I'm sure he touched so many people in his life. What an amazing guy and what a wonderful chance that I had to know him for a short time. You, too, continue to be amazing, in your strength and courage to share your story and I feel honored to know you as well. I wish I could be physically with you all right now. I guess I just have to send lots of thoughts and virutual hugs your way. Please catch them and know they're coming every day. All my love,
    Julie B (and all the boys)

    Hi Kim,
    Freddie, Renee J and I will be there on Tues. We are all fortunate to have had Art touch our lives in some way, but you and your children are truly blessed, for having shared life with him. I have and always will remember him as a "dude" with great power due to the sense of inner calm he showed the rest of us. I thank the heavens for having let us know such a man.

    Kim, I am so sorry and sad to hear that Art has died. I can only imagine how hard this journey has been for all of you. I'm sending you my love, hugs, and prayers. I only knew Art a little bit through you, but I knew him to be an incredibly kind, gentle and thoughtful person. How lucky to have had him in your life. All my love, Pattie.

  4. I'll be there with my little guy. I know the feeling of some strange kind of relief after losing someone who has been battling for a long time. He was a fighter - a warrior. I feel so proud of him - and of you and the kids. I will see you on Tuesday.
