    Dear Ingram Family,

    I just hear of Art’s homegoing and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Art was such an inspiration to everyone and he could be funny at times as well. I met Art & Phyllis at First Church of God, Shelby, OH. As much as it may hurt right now, you know where he is and that you will see him again one day. He loved his Lord so very much and was always willing to share Him with others.

    My deepest sympathies and condolences to the Ingram family on Art’s passing. A former neighbor and friend of my parents Gordon & Evelyn; Art made a lasting impression on our entire family and friends alike. I have many fond memories of Art’s friendship with my father; perhaps the most special when he accompanied us on our visit to southern Germany in 2004, re-visiting many of the same places he had last seen 60 years earlier as a soldier in WWII. I feel very fortunate and honored to have met and known Art, and hope that his family will take some comfort in their time of sorrow knowing how much his life touched others in a positive way and how much he will always be remembered. – Ronald Rudolph (Phoenix
