It broke my heart to learn of Mrs. Arnold's death. She was a beautiful lady who I had the pleasure of being acquainted with. I enjoyed seeing her in our Sunday School Class and at the church services. Chris and I will miss seeing her when we are in Charlotte. God bless you Mike, you were a good son.

Mike, Marvin and I are with you in thought and prayer. Just thinking of all the years you brought your Mom to Myrtle Beach. She loved sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean and reading her book. Often waiting for you to bring her a burger from Marvins. Listening to you over the years talk of her ,we feel we knew her well. In your sadness take a moment to think of all those wonderful years you have had with her. You have truly been and always will be held in her heart. We love you, Paula and Marvin
