My father, Orlando Presutti, worked for almost three decades with Paul. When Dad passed away a few years ago, Artis sent me a lovely card and letter. I keep it among my cherished possessions. She was a beautiful lady who touched the lives of many. My condolences to the Calhoun Family.

Terry, Randy and Sharon,

We are sorry we could not get back to EL for your mother’s services. We were hosting the Gerace family reunion in Huron.

Your mother was an amazing and formidable woman. I am sure you are as proud of her as she was of all of you. Both your parents were very special to the Capwell family.
