Thinking of you Margie and your family for the loss of Arleigh. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Maybe see you when we get to Hatton.

My deepest sympathies to Margie, Dave, and Tyann. I knew Arleigh from a kid being classmates with Danny. In recent years I would say hello when I was visiting my grandma in Hatton, and he always had a smile on his face and a kind word. Rest In Peace, Arleigh.

David & Family, My prayers are with you and your family through this difficult time. May God give you comfort in your time of grief.

We send our deepest sympathy to Margie and family. Walter has always considered Arleigh as his best friend from childhood. He will be missed. We are fortunate to have the chance to visit him the last two summers. Walter and Arleigh were both teary eyed when they met showing how much they care for each other. We pray that Arleigh now rests in peace.
