I vivdly remember writing to my cousin Art when he was shipped out to Viet Nam.Those were terrifying years. Art was with the commuincation unit and they had to run ahead of the pack and set up communications and I remember he had some close attacks and bombings. I was always afraid he would fall in one of those awful boobe traps in the ground with the bamboo spikes, jusr awful for anyone who fell into them. Lots of prayers went out for him during those times . Art was the only male cousin I knew during my life. Later I had one other on Mom's side, Mark, but never really got to know him like I did Art and Donna. He will be missed. I am sure he is looking down and smiling. LaZelle

I met Art and Irene when they moved to Syracuse. They stayed at our house until they found an apartment. My late brother and I helped them move when they left Syracuse for Kansas City. Now Irene and I are the only ones left who remember the rooster in the gas station somewhere in Indiana at 2:00 am when the temperature outside was 10 degrees. Much love to the family.
