Uncle Aurther will be missed.

He was always kind to me as a boy and young man, especially when I had given him cause to be otherwise.

He kept his faith through out his illness. He forgot many things but God was not one of them. He prayed before each meal and at bedtime (whenever that was.) He had his grumpy moments but for the most part he kept a good attitude ( just don't touch the remote.) He became close to the nurses and others who came to help with him. He always asked the ladies for a kiss and and a hug - and got it. He would argue with them at times, however, they learned how to clam him down real quick (back scratches.) He would even scratch theirs. Several ladies would sit and watch TV with him a bit - he liked the company. He was a fantastic person in every sense. He is whole again and visiting with family and friends. No doubt he is singing with the angles.

Daddy Arthur,
I am so sorry that you had to go through what you did. Only God knows why. It was privilege to take care of you. I will never forget how good of a Dad you were to me - Thank You for for being my second Dad, I couldn't have had better. I will miss you and think of you often.

I Love You,
Carolyn - you'r daughter since I was 3.
