    Plymouth MnWe as a Diede family and Butch and I send our deepest sympathies to your family. The loss of a parent is very deeply felt. The loss of a wonderful spouse leaves a very big hole.
    We are so sorry for your loss.
    I remember your Art as a tall, happy, congenial, man ready to help and befriend anyone he met.

    Dorothy and boys,
    Thank you for letting me be a part of Art’s life. He was an amazing man. He always was quick with a smile and to tell us “Ding how” or however you spell it. He always would laugh when we asked what it meant. I am not sure if he ever told us, we just took it as a “Good day”.
    I am sorry for your loss, but heaven has definitely gained an angel to watch down Take care and God bless you all

    My heartfelt sympathy Dorothy and to the rest of the family. I have fond memories of Art and you. No one can replace Art. I always enjoyed his war stories he would tell me. I hope some day to maybe read the book he started. He always told me about it. I don’t think I ever remember him without a smile on his face. He was a great guy and will be missed.

    May God Bless you all.

    I knew Mr. Wieland as a kind and caring man. He was an ardent supporter of public education in Jamestown and an excellent clinic administrator.

    Rest in peace Art Wieland!
