I offer my sympathies to Arthur's family. I knew Arthur as a staff member of Fairview. Arthur was the happiest when we had youth groups visit, and especially when the children would interact individually with residents. That gave him a lot of pleasure. May Arthur's family be able to move forward and remember the good times.

Pat, I'm so sorry for your loss. Arthur will always be remembered as one of the good guys. It's been a very, very long time since I've seen either one of you but you've never been forgotten and you will continue to remain in my thoughts throughout this sad time.
