I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the family. I am so sad to have him gone: I absolutely loved being around him, even when he had his stubborn streak! I so much enjoyed him “giving me grief” during our bingo sessions and he never failed to make me smile. I have a sense of peace knowing that he wanted me to pray for him and his family the last time I was able to see him. God Bless you Arnie: and be with The Lord...
