Our condolences to you, Mrs. Arensman. We have many memories of you and our parents, Roxie and Ralph Coleman. We especially enjoyed the article about The Temple Airs. How proud Dr. Arensman must have been for helping generate so much financial support for charities. We are thinking of you and wishing you all the best.

A real gentleman and fine professor.
We were fortunate to get to know Ray through the marriage of his daughter Ann to our brother, Pat. He and Mae became fast friends with our parents, and really became part of our extended family. Ray was quite a character and all of us enjoyed engaging in conversations with him. Truly, his passing leaves a big hole in all our lives.
I was sorry to hear about Rays passing. I sang with the Temple Aires for a number of years and considered all of the band my extended family. Ray was such a kind and gentle man with a passion for great music. My prayers go out to his entire family. He will be missed by so very many people. God Bless!
So few people contributed so much, for so long, to community as Dr. Arensman. Always that same smile. Our thoughts are sent to his family and all those that were a part of his life for many years. A defined legacy will sprinkle the soil and there will be a new twinkle in the sky. His son, Fred, was the best man in our wedding.
