    I hope you will understand that I was Thankful to hear of Arne’s passing.We had some nice visits over the last 6 months and he was so ready to pass but he said it was taking too long…. He missed his wife and all of his family and friends that passed before him.
    He was fearful and wanted to pass peacefully, he said , and he did., very peacefully.
    Arne was Gods gift to me if only for a short time.
    I have good memories of our visits, both the tears and the laughter.
    also…….he loved his grandson’s cooking. He would have a big smile when he talked about the Swedish pancakes and how everything was prepared so nice.
    Sherly and Keven…you did good with Arne. You were in there for the long hall and I know he was Thankful for that. You did Good.
    God bless you both.

    I am so sorry for the loss of Arne. I know that my Dadknew him well over the years. He would take us to his house on his visits. My Dad, Don Helman, passed away on February 12 so you know who I am. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
