Nikki and Artie,
My deepest condolences to you and your family. I shall miss your dad but I know he is now with the Lord and with Margaret. As their deacon at Kempsville Baptist Church I came to know and love them. I consider your Mother and Dad as very special people. May God give you peace as you cherish the memories in the days ahead.

We first met Arnie and Margaret at Elizabeth River Baptist Church back in the late sixties. They moved to Kempsville Baptist and we moved to Indian River Baptist. We still remained friends over the years and eventually wound up walking at the Greenbrier Mall with the Mallwalkers for the past (many) years. Knowing they loved Jesus and accepted Him as their Lord and Savior, and have served Him faitfully makes their passing much easier. They have now entered into the reward that Jesus promised them.
