I am saddened by the loss of my Brother, Arnold. He was a great brother, I have wonderful memories of when we were children and all the fun times we shared and later in our lives we were always there for each other even though we lived miles apart. He was my big brother and he will always have a place in my heart. May his soul rest in peace!

My dad was a very hard worker, As a young boy I remember him working 2 jobs one in a factory and the other pumping gas at Merit gas station on Reservoir Ave. in Cranston.
He took me to see the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, and always came to my Little League games.
I will miss my dad dearly.
