I'm so very sad to learn of the passing of my "big brother" - he was married to my sister Vivian when I was only 3 years old. Needless to say, he was an incredibly influential presence in my early life. Vivian passed away when I was 23 years old but Arnold kept my family close to his heart - attending my wedding, never failing to send a Christmas card with a heartfelt note, occasionally visiting my family in New Orleans, and most recently (and sadly) attending my brother John's funeral in South Carolina. I will always treasure my memories with Arnold - so proud to be with him on military bases when he would be saluted as we passed by - his good humor, humility, taking the time to write letters to me when he was stationed overseas. God rest his wonderful soul.
