Dad, it's been almost 3 weeks since you left. I miss you terribly, but I know you are in a better place. We will make it somehow, I still remember your words of wisdom and I manage to get the strength you gave me. Something I will share with our family. You gave me some big shoes to fill, and I hope that I can do just that. I love you dad and I miss you.

I really enjoyed working with Arnold when we were on second shift together. He was always smiling & he loved to give out candy. He took pride in whatever job he was doing. He was really a good man!
