  1. I have known Brother Arnold for as long as I can remember and I will always remember him as a man who loved God and who was always praising God. "His praises shall continually be in my mouth" That was Brother Arnold…And I know when he went to sleep he heard His Father say "Come on in, my faithful servant" I know he will be missed by everyone who knew and loved him but I am happy that he is with the Lord now and he is young and his body is perfect and he's walking and talking with the Angels. To the Arnold family I have known for so long…I am so sorry for your loss…he was such a kind man and a peaceful man who was always there for anyone in my family who needed him. I didn't get to see him too often but I will miss him non the less. He was a dear old friend…I always felt the Arnold family was part of my family. He was Grand Father to 2 of my cousins Jim and Jason Arnold. And my Brother Eugene who called him Dad, and who has lived in Washington for many years now , would never come to Sacramento without paying "Dad Arnold" a visit. He loved him as a Father and I know Brother Arnold loved him as a son. We will all miss him but find comfort in knowing that he is with his Father now in Heaven. God Bless his wife Joan and everyone who knew and loved him.
