So sorry to hear of the passing of My School Mate Arthur Junior Davis Class of 1972 I can't remember when I first meant Arthur but he was always kind. I never had the pleasure of eating any of the food he prepared but I heard it was delish. In September I ran into in Downtown Albion I talked to him he begins to tell me he had been sick I was happy to see him did not know it would be the last time I would see him I remember him as a great guy. To the family, I Pray you cherish every one of your memories of all the good times with Arthur God Bless and Keep Each of you Family God is Able
