My husband Rich and I met Arnett when we square danced with the Amherst square dance club. Arnett attended square dance lessons at our club the Grand Squares of Nelson and we became friends. He was a kind and thoughtful person and enjoyed square dancing at the beginner level. He also loved to watch when others danced at the advanced level.
