Ada and family, Our deepest sympathy to all of you. Art was one of a kind and loved by all who knew him. Heaven has a wonderful angel, although we will miss him greatly here on earth, Heaven is the BEST. God Bless all of you. Know our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Trina and Jim Jim and Trina McMahan, July 11, 2018 Art Carnes was a sweet, gentle man. He was encouraging, loving and funny. I played softball with his wife Ada a few years back (wink, wink) and he would cheer us on, we could always count on him being in the stands yelling words of support!! There was a void here at Mountainside when Ada and Art moved to be closer to their biological family...and it left a hole here. I am so grateful that they are a part of our spiritual family. I know I will see Art again on that beautiful shore. I thank God for sending His only Son that makes this possible. God bless Ada and the family. I love you all. Julia Holloman, July 5, 2018 I had the pleasure of knowing and loving Art & Ada for 25 years. Their love and dedication to God and to each other was a joy to observe. See you later dear friend. Dee Dee Stone, June 30, 2018 Thank you for the kindness you brought to this world. You will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Dr Paul C Sandoval , June 29, 2018
