  1. Barb and family,
    Deepest sympathy on the loss of Arnie. Eve though I never met him, I felt I should know him through your posts. I am very sad that the ending had to be this way and will hold you and yours in my prayers.
    I hope you find comfort and peace in the great life you had with him.

    Love and hugs, Millie
