I was struck by the feeling when we entered. It had an 'energy' and a buzz in the room. The services began, and many touching stories were shared....love stories, about this man named Art Love. They were beautiful, inspiring, touching memories about how he created a beautiful canvas of 'art' in his family, church and community. The overwhelmig story was a 'love story'. He loved so many, and scores more loved him back. His preacher shared stories of encouragement that still cause me to tear up.
I left that day, still saddened....but filled with hope. I had heard amazing 'love' stories about a man with the most perfect and fitting name for the life he lived...full of Art and Love. Mr. Art Love, I share my 'LOVE' necklace with your beautiful bride, Deborah.
