So.sorry to hear of Arnie’s death. Evelyn and I (Lois Underwood) were good high school friends. After we were married we lived near them in Austin and used to get together. Reunited again when they moved into Gramercy where Ken’s sister, Merilyn Hoium, lived. Arnie was a great guy and we so enjoyed knowing him. Our deepest sympathy to Evelyn and all his family. May he Rest In Peace.
