Memories

My sympathy in the loss of your father, grandfather, etc. I know he spent many years alone after his mate (Orene) was gone. It sounds like his grandchildren were a great joy and God granted him a long life. May your memories bring you peace and may you be comforted that he is now with the obvious "Love of His Life", Orene. May God comfort all of you at this time of grief. Janet Bailey

Memories

Arvy, as we affectionately called him, was always fun to have around. We played a lot of cards at Mary and Merle's house growing up and Arvy not only put up with us, but also made it more enjoyable. One Christmas Arvy gave me a $5 bill and he hand written on a piece of paper how much money it would grow into if I invested it wisely. Unfortunetly for me, I kept the $5 with the piece of paper and I still have it. All that lost interest. I guess the fact he went through all that trouble was more important to me than the additional income. Someday I will give my son that $5 and show him the lesson of how to make money grow. People who bring back such fond memories are never gone. Sorry for your loss, Arvy was a wonderful man. Hold him dear forever. Love, Shawn, Amy and Connor Thompson
