I came across this by accident, Diana. I am sorry for your loss. Always had a lot of laughs with you and Arnie at the fire shows. I said a prayer for you and your family. May Arnie Rest In Peace. Love, Elena

I met Arnold when he moved into assisted living. Arnold always had a smile, a positive attitude and a great sense of humor. One day he and his buddy Phil greeted me with a song when I came into work! He was so proud of his family and spoke fondly of his wife Diana. I’m so glad I had the chance to know Arnold for a short time. May you Rest In Peace Arnold.
