Arne,dear brother-in-law,was a radiant being,so much fun to be around,whatever he did,he did 100%.I can picture him at Penn State games,cheering on his team,yelling at the ref,enjoying every minute.He was such a joy,a spell-binding raconteur and a good listener.
"Goodnight,sweet prince."

Arne, was such a special man. I know how ill he was, but I am sure that God has a special place for him in heaven. We always had a lot of fun together, particularly in a play, Auntie Mame, and his devoted and lovely wife played the lead . May you rest in peace. Travel well
