TO Mrs. Price, Angela, and Anita: Let it be known that Mr. Price was truly one of God's Faithful Servants and Angel. Mr. Price always treated me as if I was one of his daughters. I'm sure that God welcomed Mr. Price with open arms, and said, "Well done my Good and Faithful Servant." The Price family will always be in my prayers.

I just wanted to express my condolences and prayers to the family of Bro. Arnold Price. While I have known Bro. Price per being frat brothers with him of Kappa Alpha Psi and attending the Gary Alumni Chapter meetings, I have known his wife Mrs. Joan Price and her family via us all being church members @ First Baptist in Gary. Bro. Price was a good brother and will be deeply missed by his fellow Gary Alumni members, we'll especially miss his comical commentary at frat meetings.

Coach Price was a inspirational individual I had the pleasure of meeting in first grade at Douglass Elementary School. He always had encouraging words to give me whenever we crossed paths,and those words followed me to Roosevelt High. Great individual, a man who spent his time here on earth very positively and productively . Take care coach.

To Joan and family, I am saddened by the loss of my "brother". He was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. Find comfort in the fact that you WILL see him again, and when you do, you will never have to say goodbye again. GOD bless all of you!
