I met and got to know Arthur at our Sunday School class at Sugar Creek Baptist Church. Over the years I enjoyed many conversations with him at church and church socials. His kindness and love for others was always evident and oh how his face lit up when he talked about his family. I will miss this very special man; he was a true gem!
