    I just now heard of the passing of a cousin & friend from my youth, Arnold. I am saddened in his passing. He was of a gentle nature. He was loyal and true in his friendships. I regret never reacquainting with him later in life. From his obituary I can tell he maintained his friendly manner. My condolences to his wife and family. The peace of God be with you all.
