To the Family of Arthur Kellogg,
We are so saddened to hear of your loss ! Art was a good neighbor and long time friend we enjoyed knowing through the years. He will be sadly missed by us, and many others.
At least we know he has a new home with his Lord and Savior. Completely healed of all his problems. We will uplift the family in prayer that Jesus will surround you and bring the comfort and peace, which only He can supply.

We are so saddened by the death of our dear friend, Arthur! He was the best neighbor for the many years we lived next door to him. Even when we moved away to Ohio, he would call and visit via phone. We loved this dear man. His suffering is past and he is Home at last. Our prayers and thoughts are now centered on the family and friends he has left behind. Someday we will see him again.

To Art's family--
I am sad to hear of my old neighbor's passing. He and his mom and wife Roberta would stop by and visit after my accident. I always enjoyed the Christmas letter they sent detailing the year's adventure's. Marilyn continued the tradition. He will be missed He was a good farmer and nice man. RIP Art.

Dear Marilyn: We are so sorry to hear this news. We loved Arthur. He always called me his little neighbor girl. He was so proud of his home, his barn and his cows. Someone told me years ago that Arthur's cows loved him, too. I believe it. We always enjoyed the news letters. Our hearts go out to you. I know you brought him many years of happiness. Love, Cindy and Clark.

What an example of the Biblical characteristic of Meekness. He had, and still has in our mind's eye, a wonderful testimony of having a sure and great confidence in his Lord. We are praying for Marilyn and thanking God for all His goodness and mercy that He has shown the family over these past months. (Phil 1:3)

We have always loved your family. Art was a great guy and he will surely be missed. The Lord had his home ready and took his hand. What a great feeling to know that his last breath on earth was his first breath in Heaven.

The neighborhood will never be the same without Arthur. He was a great neighbor and family friend to us for many years and then the same to our boys. He will be missed by all who knew him and had the privilege of having him in their lives. Our condolences to his family. May God comfort you all with His presence and give you His peace.

Such a nice photo of him. He was such a wonderful man. I have known him since I was in 4th grade, when we moved to the farm next to his. Every summer evening I would go over back of his farm or across the road fromhis house, and herd his cows into the barn with our little Shetland pony, Queenie. Every January 8th, Art and his mother would come to our house to celebrate his Mom's and my birthday. I don't remember a birthday without them. He was an extremely gentle man. I never experienced him being angry. They were great neighbours, a wonderful childhood experience, and will be sadly and greatly missed! Rest in Peace Mr. Kellogg. We love you!!

Mr. Kellogg was very dear to our hearts. I will always cherish the times I spent at Mr. and Mrs. (Roberta) Kellogg's house. They were my first "bosses", but always treated me like a granddaughter. I thank God for their Godly influence in my life!
May God comfort your heart, Mrs. Kellogg, as only He can. Much love to you! Kathy
