You have my deepest condolences for your loss of Arnold. Death is truly an enemy of all of us. The Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 verses 3 and 4 holds out the beautiful hope for our future in seeing our loved ones again.
Arnie was a kind man. While I did not know him well, the many times that we sat near him in church he would always comment on how beautiful our little girls were. The last time I shook his hand, he told me to be safe traveling for work and to soak up every moment I could with my family. He was genuine and a joy to talk with.
Rest In Peace uncle Arnie. You were a wonderful uncle and a great man. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Julie and Jim Palm
