Arnie was a longtime and dear friend. We met through St. Norbert's Choir, where he was church Cantor and a valued tenor/bass. He & I have shared many adventures together, from helping him move, visiting Disneyland and shopping for a new 'signature' Fedora hat. I've saved every special card he gave me; Arnie's Valentine's and Birthday cards were simply the best. With tearful gratefulness, I'll deeply miss his enduring friendship. I'll relive many times the breakfasts after mass at Polly's, his incomparable jokes, our often hysterically funny Skipbo Saturday nights at Sheila Donegan's, his techno-tips, attending openings of a new Harry Potter series movies, his Latin interpretations, his German accent when quipping at me, and a thousands other "Arnie-isms." The loss of his Cantorship at church, will feel as if one of the masts has fallen. I allign my broken heart with so many, mourning the loss of a unique man, a loveable character, a one of a kind dear heart.
