    "My Uncle Arvid was a wise and kind man. I remember he “loved” reading his books ! I remember the times I would go over to visit and he would usually be sitting in his chair reading. He would put his book down and we would visit! I always liked the sound of my uncle Arvid’s voice and how eloquent he spoke. He had a soothing affect on one !!! I could always feel the love he had in his heart for me and that he cared about how I was doing. He always asked me!! I’m thankful that Aunt Shirley took me to go visit him a little over a year ago. We had our one last talk and visit. We always connected spiritually and he liked that. I did too. We connected that day also. He said he knew I would understand what he was saying and I did !! It was nice. I’m feeling sad I am not able to come to the funeral to pay my respects. I believe Uncle Arvid would understand. Much heartfelt sympathy to you Pat and my cousins : Tom, Tina, Brian, Rick and Julie Love, Wendy "
