I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Brad and Margaret at Advantage for all they have done for me and my Father. They truly went above and beyond to get things done, even though they endured many obstacles, they are amazing at dealing with difficult people and circumstances! I'd recommend their services to anyone, and I cherish their friendship through this time! May God bless you in every way as you bless others each day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

This man! My daddy! Truly one of a kind! Lots of things we shared. We could hear a song and call each other saying listen to this one!. I can’t listen to it just right yet but I have a voice mail where he actually told me to turn it to a certain channel and listen to how good that singer is.
Not a time went by that me and him did not look through the Binoculars when I’d visit him. Him my mother and I all collect old money. So lots of memories there back and forth. Stories! Lord at the stories he told and it was just the week b4 he passed, I was blessed to get a few story’s I’d never heard b4. While dad was hospitalized we had this thing going where he called me every evening cause I did not want to bother him napping or struggling but the morning of at 8am I woke from my sleep and called my daddy I got to hear his voice tell me he loved me so much. He called me his baby white like when I was a child. It’s those 4 mins and 27 seconds I’ll cherish 4ever! Dad loved all his kids just the same. He did not want us fighting! Especially over his worldly possessions! But here we are!
So clearly I can hear him say GING you gotta pray about it. He never treated any one of us better than the other! But I was his baby🥰 his lil baby white!!
Ohh and I’m not his water girl neither😂 if u knew him around me u hear that story😂
Gosh I sooo miss this handsome, loving, caring, strong , incredibly sweet man he was so proud of me when he was with us! I know he’s gonna guild the rest of my life and continue to be just as proud! I love you daddy!soon we will get u to your resting spot.~~ Love your baby girl ~ginger~

MICKEY ARNOLD WHITES service will be announced as soon as the exact date is available. I welcome all family and friends to attend and be able to say "see you again" not goodbye. I'm also trying to plan a gathering/dinner of sorts, for after the service so that we may all reminisce and tell stories of times that have been shared. I'd like to share this funny story right now, the only person that could clarify it to me is his oldest surviving brother Ricky White. "Arvil"is how my father is listed on his social security card, but not on his birth certificate or any other document. That is the first time I have ever heard that name in my entire life, Ricky says that is a mistake that was made by the US military when my father enlisted many many years ago. And I guess it's something that my father never felt the need to change as everything else and everyone else knew him as Mickey Arnold White. I sure wish I had known that before because I would have picked on him so bad, I bet I could have really had him going. Laughing to myself now just thinking about his reaction. It's stories like these I hope to be able to share with everyone on his special day of remembrance, and to lay him at rest. Date, time and place to be announced soon. Everyone is welcome, and I thank you all for keeping us in your prayers and to those that have already lended helping hands. Sending much love Charity White Humphries his first born, God bless each and everyone of us.
