My father asked me to look up your obituary, his name is Leopoldo Carrillo (El Barillas). You both were really good friends in San Fernando Valley. My father had cried for your loss everyday, since the day he found out which was last week. My father's birthday is January 10th, the same day you left earth. The greatest condolescences to all of your family from my Father (El Barillas). Your memories of growing up in San Fernando (The wild times) live in him forever.

I will forever regret not knowing you had been ill, and saying goodbye to you.

Although we had not spoken in quite some time, you and Kristal were a big part of my life and I am truly saddened by the news of your passing. I will always remember your fierce love of oldies, your infectious laugh and your strong love for your family and friends. My condolences to your wife, your brothers and sisters, your neices and nephews and most importantly to your baby girl, Kristal, the true love of your life and reason

I knew Art "across the table". I was the "Union" he was the "Boss". That relationship would, by it's nature, have been polite but distant at best-but it was not so. Art was the kind of supervisor that truly cared for his guys, a rare and wonderful thing these days. And because of that, Art and I had many opportunities to work with each other, rather than against each other. I admired the way he concerned himself with their welfare,

YOU TOOK YOUR BELT OFF AND SAID "HERE TAKE MINE" MY RESPONSE," HOW ABOUT YOUR SHOES" ? NOT YET CATCHING ON. YOU IMMEDIATELY STARTED TO TAKE YOUR SHOES OFF. MY FRIEND KEN AND I STILL LAUGH ABOUT THAT TO THIS
