It was hard to call him Art, because my whole life Ive called him Mr Boonstra. He told me it made him feel old .Being over 60 , time allows you to age, its not a "number thing" anymore after that . This man so much loved everyone and everything . He loved Jesus so much. I will miss his comments about bringing him home made meals and pies and well wishes . Praying fro Carolanne , and his five boys and their families . Love from the Lineweaver Family
