My Mother, Loretta Webb, worked with Arvid at the College of Alameda's Library. She loved Arvid, and invited him to her big birthday party at 1300 Fillmore just a few years ago.
Mom took ill a week before Arvid passed away. I just couldn't bring myself to tell her that her great friend Arvid was no longer with us. Mom died two weeks later.
I miss you both, but I know the two of you are singing and laughing in Heaven just like you did here. Earthly bodies may fail, but your souls live on.
God bless you, Arvid, for making Mom smile every day.
