    A lot of people called him Arthur, some people knew him affectionately as Ott, but the people who knew, respected and loved him called him PAPPY. Heaven is a little brighter now that he got his ultimate healing. Rest easy Pappy, we will see you again.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I was an adult before I knew his name was not Ott and was really Arthur Lee. As a second cousin growing up Ott was all I ever knew him by. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. My heart hurts for my sweet sweet Patsy. What a joyous time is being had in heaven as he reunited with his lord and savior and so many of the family who have gone before.

    I remember Mr Luna (Ott) from when I was a little girl. I lived right behind Granny Hand on Elaine Ave.. I knew the Luna family from growing up with them and going to school with them. Mr. and Mrs. Luna took me to Cracker Barrel for the first time when I spent the night with Robin when we were growing up. I will always remember that, it meant so much to me to go with them. The Luna and Hand families are very special people. I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Luna was a great man.

    Our neighbor passed away, and he will be especially missed by Wallace, because Wallace and Art were always out in the backyard conferring with each other over what they were each working on. They became good buddies in the six years that they have lived next to Wallace and me. I told Wallace one morning, Art is really dressed up today, has on his dress Western Boots, white shirt, dress Jeans, that Black Belt with Sterling Silver on it, and that gorgeous Navy Blue Suede Leather Western Stitched Sport Coat he wears sometimes. I saw him outside, and I told him, you sure of decked out today in that gorgeous sports coat. He just grinned from ear to ear. I told Wallace, He reminded me of my Dad when he would dress up like that, and I wanted Art to know, he really looked nice. Wallace already misses Art, as will I seeing him in the yard working on something or other all the time. Patsy and he have been good neighbors to us, even in this short time. We will keep all the family in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time, but Art is resting now. Janice & Wallace Lampley

    Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

    Aunt Patsy, so sorry for your loss. He was Uncle Ott to me. I remember staying at you guys house a lot when I was a teenager. Not that I’m proud of it, but when I didn’t want to go to school, I would hide out at your house. Didn’t like High School much because I wasn’t allowed to participate in many activities. Daddy was really strict. Your house was my 2nd home. Uncle Ott was always smiling and joking around. He will be missed very much. My prayers are with you, Aunt Patsy, Paul, Timmy, Walter, Robin and Lori and your families. Love you all.

    My dad was Clifford Turnbo, and he and my mom (Virginia) thought the world of him . When I was a small child growing up in West Nashville. , Mr Luna was “Ott” or “Autha Lee”. Condolences to all the family.

    I did not know Arthur, but from the memories shared by family and friends it’s obvious that he was very special and loved by many. I hope you can find comfort in God’s promise to restore our dead loved ones to life here on the earth, never having to say goodbye again. Through God’s Kingdom, Jesus will make this earth the problem-free paradise that his Father intended it to be. Until that time let your memories take you back and make you smile, let prayer bring you peace and comfort, and the support from your family and friends help you through this very difficult time.- Matthew 6:9-10; Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29
