Our paths first crossed at GTE Labs, but my favorite memories of Art are from the years when he and Pat came to the Marlborough Evening of Giving and the laughs we had sharing email jokes and stories. Although I won’t be able to attend his funeral, I will be there in spirit. My sincere sympathy, Nancy Hough
