I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I saw him not too long ago at Las Palmas and we got to visit for a little bit. He was such a good person and always made a person feel welcomed. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Arland will be greatly missed! I talked to him every morning at the gym! It will never be the same! He was one of the most kind good men at the gym. He is the last of a dying bread of great men and soldiers! Thank you for all the great conversations and your service! May god bless him and his family! Rest In Peace! You are home now.
