Dear Jeff,Liz and Kathy,

It has been years since I have seen you but I saw the obituary for your mom and thought I should express my condolences. I have so many fond memories of my youth in your neighborhood with Dennis Hartman and Tom Reich and later with various encounters with Jeff in the business community. Time passes by so quickly and and those we love are gone. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you.

Betty Arnold was one of the most wonderful persons that I have ever known. She was funny, intelligent, witty, generous, lovely, caring, giving and a great dancer. I loved her with all of my heart. She lit up a room when she entered it and brightened everyones mood while she was there. She reminded me so much of Betty White. They both were/are lovely and funny with a twinkle in their eyes. The light was always on...and you never knew what was going to happen next.
I had more great times being around her than I can count. She gave me love and travel opportunities and wonderful experiences that I never would have had without her and Doc. They were a lovely couple together and Betty kept up the good times after he had passed on. She would do so many sweet things all of the time. You probably wouldn't understand if I tried to really had to be there. I was so lucky to have had her in my life. I have nothing, but good memories of her.
I adored her.
Losing someone like Betty is an incredibly difficut thing and I send my heartfelt sympathy to Kate, Jeff and Liz and their families. I know that George and my Mother and Father are welcoming her into heaven and are ready for the fun to begin.
