Mrs. Arrington and family:

I'm very sorry for your loss. I have a lot of very good memories (and no bad ones) of Mr. Arrington. He was always so upbeat, friendly and respectful to everyone, had a great sense of humor, and from what I could tell really enjoyed life.

I remember thinking that my good friend Todd was lucky to have a great dad like Mr. Arrington. I also remember being invited to company picnics in east Texas, and sitting at the bar at your house talking to all of you and munching on the bag of marshmallows that was always next to the phone.

I pray that God will bring you comfort, and I hope you find consolation knowing that you now have one more saint looking down on you from heaven.
