    My sympathies go out to you, Elsie, and your family. You now embark on a new and different chapter of your lives. May God comfort and strengthen you as you learn to live without the presence of your loved one.—-
    Your loved one’s winter is over.
    He has gone to eternal spring
    Where the flowers are always blooming
    And the birds will always sing.
    Even though in your heart you will miss him
    You know his suffering is done
    And that he is waiting in glory
    For you in his heavenly home.

    Sincerely, Vivian Lautermilch.

  8. Elsie and family, I was sorry to hear about Arnie’s death. I remember him as full of life, adding such spice to my time at Shellstar Custom Cabinets. He was a good mentor and brought out the best in me. I appreciated his singing as well. I wish you every grace as you adjust to life without him, and many consolations as you recall the many good times you had with him.

    With my prayers, Larry Adams

    My sincere sympathy on the loss of a husband, father and grandfather and my prayers for strength to heal in the days ahead.

    Growing up around your family, I’ll always remember Arnold’s special way he had with animals whether it was Taya (not sure I spelled that right), Ritz or TJ.

    May your memories bring you peace.

    Love,

    Dear Elsie, Sheldon, Sharon and Stephen,
    It is with great sadness, that we have learned of the passing of Arnie, and we would like to take the opportunity to pass on our sincerest condolences to you and your entire family. Not only was Arnie a great business partner and friend, but his passion for the lost is the reason I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and today more then 25 members of Linda’s and my family are serving the Lord. Praise God! I know, that Arne will be dearly missed by all of you, but he has found his final resting place and is enjoying all his crown and praising his Lord all the day long. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always, and we will try to see you on our next visit to Calgary.

    Love,

    Lorenz, Linda, Mark, Tim, Rebecca and kids
