Lowell, Pat, Marie and family: Please understand that Lew and I and the boys are so very sorry for your loss. We had Arnold in our lives for so many years and nothing can erase the happy memories we hold of him. He has truly been in my prayers these last five years - and especially since Mom's passing. I will continue my prayers on behalf of you all and ask Him for peace in the face of your loss. I am just so very sorry.

My condolences to your family. Arnold was the only grandpa on my dad's side that I knew for so long. I am deeply saddened by his passing and will be praying for your family during this difficult time.

Lowell and Pat, I am deeply saddened to hear about Arnold's passing. He was like a Dad to me when I lived with him back in 1984 and served my apprenticeship under him. He taught me so much about embalming and restorative work that I still carry his ways and professionalism with each family I serve. I have been out of contact with him since 1987 when I went off to college and lived all over the country but my wife and I will never forget him. May he rest in peace.
