He was/is one of the best....one of the kindest, most genuine people I have ever known. Now he and Shirley are having the time of their lives.

As children, my brother Chuck and I spent a few summers on the Appling farm. We saw examples of strong work ethic, family togetherness and country values that stayed our whole lives. May God bless and Receive Uncle Jr.... And may God bless the Appling family in this time of loss and transition.

My Prayers and thoughts are with you during this difficult time. I have good memories of the Applyings when we grew up with the Applings children. I'm sorry to hear this sad news.

Lots of great memories of our families growing up together. Jr Archie and Dad were ordained together at New Beverly if I remember correctly. When I first announced my call to preach Jr was always very encouraging. He will definitely be missed. Praying for peace and comfort for all of you.
