    We would like to send our sincere condolences to Pat and to all of the Brogden family. We only knew him briefly, through the purchase of some recreational property, but we were both impressed by his positive attitude. Our prayers are with you, Pat.

    Arnold was one of the most sincere, genuine people I had the fortunate opportunity to know. His wit and sense of humor combined with his humbleness and kindness was an inspiration to all whom had the opportunity to experience the fine man in their lives. To Pat and the Girls Dawn and Teresa and their families, our sincerest condolences, remember the fun times. We will remember him fondly.
