We are saddened to hear of Art's passing. We appreciated him as a teacher of our son, Joshua. He was a good man who truly was interested in his students and his community. Please accept our condolences for your loss. Eric and Sheryl Duhon

I had the privilege to have been associated with Art over the years (From 2015-2019) and even though our relationship was not where I desired it to be in his last years and last months, my respect for him was never lacking. As a friend and Christian, I am saddened and continues to be depressed by his loss and all of us( his Friend's at the local brewery ) will miss him dearly. May God bless his family, wife, children and his soul. With Agape Love, RIP Art(Fighting Tiger) Myrick.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I like to think back of what occurred when Jesus resurrected Lazarus (John 11:38-44). We can read the deep empathy of Jesus when his friend had died, but with the authority that his father had gave him, he was able to resurrect Lazarus back to life! This was just a glimpse of what Jesus and his father, Jehovah, will do in the further worldwide! (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29).
