    We are truly sorry about Arnold, your dad….
    Death is called an “enemy”, producing a ” sting”, even though it also can bring relief to the one who’s suffering.
    I’m sure he found comfort in having you kids there & just knowing how much you cared. We look forward to the
    Time when sorrow, pain, and death will be a thing of the past.
    1Cor. 15:26,55,56 / Rev. 21:4

    Your Friends,
    Jonathan & Chloe’

  2. My deepest condolences…prayers for the family.
