  1. Our sympathies to the Goslin family. We went to school with Nancy and enjoyed the family business for years. He will be missed by many.

  2. My sympathy to the family. My father and Art’s father were businessmen on opposite ends of the block and were good friends. My dad owned the OK Food Market–his name was Charles (Charlie) Montagnoli. Art was just a year behind my twin sister and me in high school. Wonderful family remembered by us “older” Mendotans.

  3. Sorry for your lost loved one. Surely he will be missed by all. May you look to the God of all comfort and hope in his promises . Rev 21:3,4

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. Erin, please know that you and the Family are in My thoughts and Prayers. May God comfort you all and give you Strength during this difficult time.

  5. The Haver & Boecker USA Finance department would like to offer our condolences. We are praying for your family.
