Remember both Art and Wilma fondly. Art sang in the choir at St Paul Episcopal Church in Louisville. It was Art who convinced me to try a Hyundai Sonata over the Camry I had been driving. I also remember he was quite a craftsman. So sorry for your loss.

When we met Mr. Taylor in his mid 80, he was gracious, curious about investing in real estate, and happy to meet new people.

Sorry about your loss. I enjoyed the time that I got to talk to him when you brought him to the Cashflow game.
