    So sad to hear the news of your passing. Always a kind ear to lend when something needed to be solved. Being an Uncle to so many of us is not a job for the weak of heart. You will be sorely missed by the tribe known as your family. The "good mornings" every day and the "God Bless" when it was bed time..I'm sure we will be looking for them a long time coming. Knowing that you have reunited with family members who were overjoyed to see you is a definite comfort, knowing we will all meet again a bonus. God Bless you and keep you. Much love coming your way......Helen

    Uncle Arthur,
    It doesn’t seem real. Has I known in March it would be the last hug I would’ve held on just a little bit longer . The selfish part of me still wants you with us , but my heart knows you’re not suffering any more and you are with Memere and Pepere and your brothers.
    Love you and miss you !!!
    Until we meet again!

    You were a mentor, a teacher and a protector, but most of all you were a big brother to us all. I was proud to follow you into the Marine Corps and would gladly have followed you to the ends of the earth, which I am sure to do one day.
    Save a place for me amongst our group of brothers. ‘Til we meet again…..

    I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you, and then I realized you spent the rest of your life with me. I smile because I know you loved me until the day you went away and will continue loving me. Until we are together again, I will carry you in my heart forever. If I had my life to live over again, I would find you sooner so that I could love you longer.
