Sorry for your loss.
Arvie was the highlight of my days when working long shifts or even short shifts, we bonded over our love of desserts and ice cream. He will truly be missed and will forever be in my heart. It was an honor to be able to care for such an amazing gentleman.
My condolences, Maddy Gardow
