Every time an officer receives his last call of duty I think of Art. Beth was with child at the time, and my heart was so full of hurt for her. Beth and Art lived behind us. I will never forget either of them. They were the nicest neighbors that another young couple could hope to have met. I will miss Art, and wish nothing but the best for Beth and her family.
