I can not express how sorrowful I feel for you, Marcus and Ericka and families at this time in your lives. God has closed some chapters in both of your life books. I can only pray that the new chapters that are going to begin can give you both some peace. Love, Shorty

My heart is heavy & I am still in shock, but I am glad you are not suffering. I will always remember your visits to NY. We will not forget you or the good times we shared. You had such a big heart & you always shared it and everything you had. You will be greatly missed, but rest in peace cousin.
Marcus, haven’t seen you since we were little but know we will be praying for you & your lovely family. May God bless you, strengthen you & keep you.

Sincere condolences to Marcus, Ericka and the family. I remember Marcus when he was a baby in Monticello, NY. My mom, Margaret Nowlin and aunt, Juanita Branch send condolences as well. I will miss talking about our birthdays because mine is 2 days before Mac’s and we would always
tease about who owed who a birthday dinner. May God comfort you and give you peace during this difficult time.

I was so saddened to hear of Mac’s passing. He was a terrific Father and “Paw-Paw”. I know you have alot of friends here who join me in sending sympathy to you and your family. It would be difficult to measure the impact he has had on the many lives he touched, personally and professionally. He was a thoughtful and generous man, and we are so saddened for your loss. Please accept my condolences to you and the entire family.

Peace and Blessings,

My words can not express how I feel about the passing of Arthur. I only new him for a short time but during that time I grew to respect and love him very much. He had many many friends at his apartment community where he lived and he will be greatly missed by all of them. RIP Arthur until we meet again. Gina Battles

I cannot tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Art and I were friends for many years,
and I had a friend for life from the 1st day we met. Art you will surely be missed by so
many. I cannot even express how empty we are without you. RIP my friend, you are
in Gods hands now. Fly away to the heavens. Until we meet again.

Marcus and family: Words cannot be found to express our sadness and sorrow at the passing of such a great friend as Art … he was one of Dave’s best friends and will truly be missed. Their friendship goes back many many years and so many great memories of time spent together in life. RIP Art – you are truly missed … God gained a great angel when you passed through His gate … until we meet again.

Art and I go back 35 yrs of friendship. To the days of Silvey Refrigerated Carriers. Arthur has watched each of my children grow. And each child along with my grandchildren grew to know Art as more than just a friend. He will be missed. Our families deepest condolences goes to Marcus and his family.

Marcus, Erika and family. I am so sorry for the loss of one of the greatest men I ever got to meet. What a great friend he was to Jim & I. Always made us laugh, always had stories to tell us about his Family. Ran to the East Coast with Jim, so they could always have the best Pizza made- In New York City! I know Art was heart broken when he lost his best friend Jim on January 13, 2015. God speed my friend, you don’t have to be alone, not with Jim up there to swap stories with, and little Richard too. Marcus, it was always great when you came to Omaha to see your Dad and we all got to spend time with you. My heart goes out to all.
