  1. A bouquet of beautiful memories, Sprayed with a million tears, Wishing God could have spared you, If just for a few more years. It does not take a special day, For us to think of you, Each Mass we hear, Each prayer we say, Is offered up for you. We cannot bring the old days back, When we were all together, Our family chain is broken now,
    But memories live for ever. PRAYER # 136
    We miss you and you will always have a place in our heart. Love Debbie

  4. Brenda and Family…My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Arnie will surely be missed. He had the ability to always make you laugh when he was around. May God be with you at this time and always. Love you.

  5. Brenda our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. We will miss the Mayor of Ridgemar Road.

  6. Brenda, God blessed you with a wonderful husband. He was an excellent father, friend and neighbor. He always had time to help with our projects, fix a bike or two, or just hang out and talk. Thank you for sharing your husband with us and for all the awesome Ridgemar memories. I will always remember our kickball games and all the fires. You are in my prayers.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember hanging out on Henrietta Street/Nelson Street with Judy, Arnie, John and Joann….back when Mary and David were babies.
    Pops was a wonderful man…hang dear to all the memories…he is a t peace now.
    Joanne….call me ANYTIME. Your family is in my thoughts.

  8. I worked with Arnie in 1990 (or so). Arnie was instrumental in getting me promoted into investigations with him. He stood up for me even when I had a few prior incidents that caused concern with management.

    I’ll never forget the time we were working on an assignment in Syracuse (and I tell this story a lot) that we decided to order a couple of Taco Salads from the restaurant across the street. He said ‘I’ll buy, you fly’..now Arnie can eat Jalapeno peppers like cookies. I ordered mine with Sweet Peppers. When we sat down to eat, I took a nice big fork fool and soon started gasping for air. Arnie had called the restaurant and changed my order to the same peppers he had. He was sooo calm and never cracked a smile until I began eating. He laughed sooo hard that he began gasping for air himself. It was pretty funny (once I stopped fuming).

  9. Our entire family is sad to hear of Arnie’s passing. He was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor! He is resting in the arms of Jesus.
    Sincerely,
    Jeff, Kathy, Jeffrey, David, and Brianna Hayden

  10. Thank you Dad ,

    I must return the gift God gave me … Til then ;
    See you in Heaven … Always and Forever in my heart . With every breath I take . I LOVE YOU !

  11. We’re all very sorry for the families loss and hope that everyone is doing as well as to be expected. Please remember that we are all here for you if and when you need us. Everyone loved/loves Arney very much. He will be sorly missed. Love, Deana and kids.
