Charles, Sally Family,

When I was a young boy, my two brothers and I lived accross the street from you and your 3 boys and later on when I got married and was raising my own family, we coincidently ended up moving back to the same street where I was raised and where again was living directly accross from you but Mark, Keth and Kevin had already moved on. I was always impressed with the order in which you kept your lives and the giving nature you both had to your friends and family. We have ran into each other since then and most recently a couple years ago when I was visiting my mom Libby who lives on Arcaro in Gahanna. I know how committed and involved you both are in all three of your sons lives and the lives of your grand children. Yesterday I was first made aware of this untimely and unthinkable loss to your son, his wife and the entire family and feel so heartbroken for all of you and especially sorry that I could not pay my respects in person as I was not aware of what had taken place until after the services. A good friend of mine who knows Daniel's other Grandmother was the one who made a remark to me as to whether I knew an Arnold family since we lived in Gahanna and proceeded to give me the details. It is so difficult to deal with the loss of a child and even more so when you come to find out what a remarkable young man he was with so much of a positive future ahead of him. I was never introduced to your son Kevin or his wife, but I hope you can pass on to them for me and Cindy that we will be praying very hard for all of them and your entire family and admire the faith and grace you all have displayed in dealing with this unthinkable loss. That alone is a valuable gift you have given others as a testiment to your faith that many will learn from and will hopefully apply to their personal lives. I know I will.

My deapest sympothy and condolences,

Gregg Herbst and Family

Dear Arnold Family,
We were neighbors for a few years back in the early '90s (1040 Arcaro Dr). Our children are similar in age and I remember seeing your darling kids playing outside. Little toe-headed angels! Please accept our deepest sympathy for Danny's untimely passing. Your family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

I pray that soon we will see Daniel again on a paradise earth. That's what God has promised, and that's what I am looking forward to. We were created to enjoy life, to have no worries. Yet we lose dear loved ones, even at such a young age. God's purpose for mankind hasn't changed. My hope is that God will make sure His original purpose for this earth, and for mankind will be fulfilled

Kathy and Kevin:
We watched your son Danny grow up for the past 17 years at St. Matthew Church and we got to know him thru you two talking about him, regarding band, track and college aspirations. We did not know him personally, but felt like we did. He was always such a pleasant young man and we can't begin to tell you how sorry we are for your loss. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We will have a Mass said in Danny's memory. We are sending our deepest sympathy and many prayer to all of the Arnold family.

We are praying for the entire Arnold and Berger families. I went to Holy Spirit and Hartley with David (Berger) and was so saddened to hear of the tragic news about his nephew. We are also members of St. Brigid parish and know the Arnold family there. Sending our deepest sympathy and many, many prayers to all of you.

Danny was such a smart, kind, and caring person. I remember when I used to ride the bus home at Hartley, he taught me how to tie a double knot on a neck tie. He would always give me his tie and let me play around with it and practice tying it on myself. I always liked his ties because they always had something interesting on them. I remember my favorite one was either blue or green with little turtles on it.

He would always make everyone on the bus laugh and laugh from the jokes he would tell all the time. He could always make you laugh.

Danny was a one of a kind person, with a good heart. He will be greatly missed by all.

I will keep your family in my prayers.
