I have such good memories of the summers spent on the farm in Heuvelton with Bev, Sandy and Nancy while Uncle Art milked in the barn or hayed in the field. The good old days. My prayers go out in your sorrow with hopes that they will quickly be replaced by some of those same memories of happy times.

To the family of Arthur (Art) Denesha: I had the honor and privilege to meet with and come to know Art during our weekly visits. His piercing blue eyes and crooked little grin would bring smiles to all who were blessed by knowing him.
During our visits, he would often talk of his home, family and his love of flowers. His family was very important and he often spoke of his daughters, and how he would get regular visits from Sandy. I will miss my visits with your loved one and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Please accept my condolences and God bless.

Dear Nancy and family,.
I was deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your father, Arthur , words cannot express my sympathies to you at this time.
Growing up in Ogdensburg, I will always remember Art with a warm smile and a kind word.
Art was an integral part of my childhood years and although he lived rather “pleasant/simple life “, he had a great giving heart.
Art is someone I have thought of often over the years and will be surely missed.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of your family and friends.
I would love to hear from you.

With God's love, please accept my very sincere and warm condolences at this difficult time.
