    Those we lost in 2014

    A Teacher, A Leader, Our Friend


    As a leader you were never afraid to be the first person in the room to speak against injustice; As a friend we could always count on you  to turn our frowns upside down. As a companion we knew you would be there to provide comfort in difficult times. You were forgiving and had the ability to love no matter what. Compassionate, embraced every soul you met with love. As a Teacher, you empowered and encouraged others to always do their best. Courageously you committed to doing God's work each and every day of your life.


    Arthor, you shared your heart with the world, and you unselfishly gave us all a piece of you. We will cherish that piece forever. You will be missed, but never forgotten. Thank you for gracing us with your presence. It was an honor to have you in our lives.
    As we close this final chapter of your journey here on earth, we ask ourselves “How will we change to honor the life that you lived?"


    "I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again"~Stephen Grellet


    We love you always and forever. We wont say goodbye, we'll just say see you on the other side.



    Until we meet again...Our dear friend.
