Peggy, We're so sorry to hear about Arthur. I had just ask mom how he as doing and she said she hadn't heard lately. A few minutes later Judy called to tell me the news. God must have placed you on my heart at that time. We're out of town this week for spring break. Mom would love to be there, but we won't be able to make it for the service.
