Cecelia your phone call was quite a shock! So sorry to hear that Arthur has left his earthly home for his eternal home; however, wouldn't we love to hear him and Don "catching up" since their visit last year. Arthur was ALWAYS a loyal friend to Don, and the girls and I will hold in our hearts how faithful he was to visit Don in the Nursing Facility. The feeling was mutual. Don thought a lot of his buddy and he looked forward to seeing Arthur (and yes, he always loved the cake & cookies you baked for him). Praying for God to give you strength, comfort, peace and hope during this sad time . May your treasured memories build bridges your heart can cross whenever you are feeling sad. Hugs to you, Bertha-Ann

To this wonderful Montgomery family, it was such a honor to have known and to have had many camp outs and travels together . I will always remember our trip out west to Yellowstone National Park , what a trip that was, I believed Arthur must have taken a thousand pictures. Our camping trips with our group were full of wonderful memories, he always got up early so the grits would be ready when the breakfast got done, he loved setting and visiting with everyone in the group. He is truly the best person I have ever known , we will all be better people by having him in our life. God be with you all during this difficult time. Joyce and Gary Meyer
