As Arthur Sr. niece-in-law, it was such an honor and pleasurable moment to have one as an uncle-in-law. Inexpressible words cannot conveyed, how awesome Arthur Sr. was to his family and friends. Now that Arthur Sr. is sleeping...rest well! For this is not a time of sadness but, a time to share plenty of memories in laughter. One's presence (at family gatherings) will truly be missed, but ever forgotten.
