Brenda- You and Art are not only family, but have been our friends for many decades. While Art will be missed, he will always be in our hearts. After many months of suffering, I’m sure he is in a better place. Art was a good and honorable man and God will welcome him in Heaven. Art would expect us to be strong and move on, and we will.
The Vaughn family
Family and friends. I am so deeply sorry to hear about Arthur falling asleep in death. He will not be forgotten because of Jesus’ promise found at John 5:28,29. I hope these promises bring comfort during your difficult time.
Brenda so sorry for your loss
What an honor to be your daughter. Although I knew the day was coming, I was not ready. What I would give to be your nurse just one more day. Even in the daily struggles of the cancer, you taught me about strength and patience. Although you left your physical body, I know without a doubt you are here in the spiritual form which is so comforting. I’m blessed to have an angel flying to close to the ground.
Until we meet again, I love you and miss you.
