Rest In Peace My Brother, until We Meet Again…

Dear Linda and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. We have missed having you in Colorado. We know this is not goodbye as we will see one another in heaven where we will laugh about how he kept outbidding me on Amilia’s teapot I still have. Love you guys and know we are here for anything you need.

Words cannot express how much we are saddened by the news of our beloved Tío. Art’s humor, as well as his caring and affectionate personality, will be greatly missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know him. We will gladly carry on the tradition set forth by Art of sneaking ice cream in the middle of the night. We love you, Art.

Of all the great times my brother and I share together growing up, the one that stands out the most was back in 1972. I was 14 he was 18 and he took me to my first concert ever.
it was Santana!

My ears rang for 3 days.
My condolences to the Hidalgo family. I’m glad he got to meet his Grandchild Adrian. Even though I only met and spoke to him a couple of times I’m glad I was able to exchange message through facebook on his progress with his health. I know how much he loved his family and wanted the best for them. He will be truely missed.
