To Shirley, Nancy, Selina and Sheila. You have been so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and supportive father. I know that means that you will miss him all the more. You will never forget the good man that he was and evenually learn to live with his loss. I feel fortunate to have had a nice visit with Arnold and Shirley while I was in Denver. He was good to me by helping me g me find a job while I lived in Denver. I love you all, Marjorie Lauckner Sellers-Edmonds, WA

My sweet papa I will and already do miss you so much. I can't imagine how life will be without you. I'll make sure to take care of grandma for you. I will always cherish our time together, you and I shared such a special bond that can never be broken. I will never forget our time in the garage showing me how things work, our annual trips to the stock show that I always looked so forward to. You have taught me so much and made me the person I am today, and hope you are proud of. I love you papa, I'll forever be listening for old yeller to start up so I can run out saying papa are you? Lots of steak, taters and tamaters ahead covered in enough pepper to put some hair on the chest. I love you papa I hope you rest in peace. XoXo

I will always love and miss him forever and always I remember back when I was 3 or 4 And I was with him and we played hide and seek in the basement and he popped out of a closet and growled. I will always remember him as happy and healthy. I love you
