I am so sorry to hear about Arthur’s passing. I have known him since I move to Artesia in 2005. He was one of the first patients that I saw after beginning practicing here. I really enjoyed our visits every time he came to the office. He always brightened my day. He will will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.
