I cannot Express the honor it was to know Arnold. I enjoyed being his nurse. He made me feel special every day. The smallest deed was always most thankful by him. He always called me beautiful Renea. I called him sweet Arnold. And that he was humble and sweet. Loved the lord. I will miss his music playing. Rest in Peace.
