It gives me such a pang to see Art, in this photo, looking so stalwart and proud in his uniform. I have known him ever since he married my friend Debbie in 1988, and from the moment I laid eyes on him, I felt such a strong sense of groundedness, kindness, stability, warmth -- it came off him in waves. Here was a man to trust, someone to count on, someone who said what he meant and meant what he said, someone who came through -- not just in a pinch, but as a way of life. A man of integrity, he left the world a better place for his having been in it. It is a sadder place without him. My heart goes out to Debbie, who will miss him so. She tended to his every need for many years, and nursed him devotedly throughout his illnesses and physical challenges. Without her, we would have lost him far earlier. She blessed his life as he blessed hers -- and the two of them had the joy of making music -- and a life -- together. Those of us who knew them are the better for it, and give thanks.

I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Temple. I grew up in Chardon living next door to him, and spent many years watching movies and eating popcorn there, as well as playing ridiculously long games of chess with his son Mark. I could not have asked for a better neighbor and friend. His intelligence, calmness, down-to-earth personality will always remind me of just how much I wish I could be more like him. The world is a sadder place with him gone, but a much better place for him having been here. Rest easy, Mr. Temple, Rest in peace.
