What a fine actor! He and his brother Peter Graves were two of my all-time favorites. I especially enjoyed seeing Mr. Arness as Marshall Dillon, but I also enjoyed him as "The Thing" and for his role in "The Macahans". Farewell Marshall Dillon! You have truly earned the best spot under the prettiest tree on Boothill! The Lord is my shepherd.......

I loved Gunsmoke. James Arness was perfectly cast and did such a fine job depicting the wise communal protector ie sheriff in the Wild West. His brother was equally great in his memorable roles.

Dear Arness Family,

My grandfather is a huge fan of Gunsmoke. I have watched it may times growing up, and I have to say that it is truly a classic televsion show. It has all the elements that some shows today are missing.
I pray that the family will be able to find comfort and support in this time of bereavement. Psalms 34:18 states: "The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
God bless and my prayers are with you all.

My childhood memories will always include Gunsmoke. What a great cast and show! Television today could take a lesson from the wonderful actors on that show. Mr. Arness and Matt Dillon will long live in our memories! Rest in peace!

I watched Gunsmoke while falling asleep on my grandfather's lap as
a small child. It was and is a favorite. The ending music touches my heart every time I hear it. Profound sympathy on the loss of a great man and actor. Ruthanna B.
