    My thoughts are with all of you at this time. I loved Uncle Arden and always always always looked forward to seeing him at any family event. He always had time for me and was truly interested in what was happening in my life.

    Some people come into our lives and quickly go
    Some people move our souls to dance
    They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom

    Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon
    They stay in our lives for a while, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same.

    Love, Juanita

    My Dear Uncle Arden, Although we have lost touch thru-out the years-we always had that bond of being more than just a relative. Memories are good-you used to drive me around when I was 13-15 yrs old and play your favorite songs LOUD! I Loved it, even though we were only around Sebeka/Wadena area. When I got Married in Missouri in 1970- You made sure that you showed up for my wedding reception and althought I was too young to drink at the time-you made sure we got our Wedding Toast!
    We danced and had so much fun that night, something I will never forget. We hope that you REST in Peace with Jan, David,Your parents & my Dad. I Know that they were there with open arms to take you in. We Will miss you.
