Dot, Doug, and Connie,
There are no words to express the sadness I felt when I learned of Jim's passing. What a wonderful human being he was. He set an example we all should follow. His genuine kindness will truly be missed. May God bless you and keep you in the palm of His hands always.
With deepest heartfelt sympathy,

Dorothy, I am so sorry to read of Jim's passing. You may not remember me, but you were my very first supervisor at my first job at Life and Casualty Insurance Company, first on Broadway and then on Magnolia. I remember our walks to Weaver's cafeteria on Broadway and then to Krispy Kreme on Magnolia to get those good fried pies. I'll be praying for your comfort in the difficult days ahead. Still love you, Charlene.

Jim, so many people will miss you. You were always there whenever anyone was sick or in the hospital. You were everything a son, a brother, a husband and a father should be and you made Mama and Daddy so proud of you. Your sister, Betty (my mother), and your sister, Joan kept us all in stitches with all the stories and childhood shenanigans three of you got into. You were the last of Mama’s seven children to pass on and that leaves quite a void in the Arnold family. I was glad to be a part of it as your niece. May God bless Dot, Doug and Connie. I pray for peace to come to their hearts at this most difficult time in their lives. I love you.
