It is with great sorrow that I find myself writing about the loss of yet another dear friend. Arnold Anderson did not live in one of our condos, however he touched the lives of many of us who do.
When Arnold first came to this area and had decided that he wanted to live here, he actually looked at one our condos thinking that he might buy here. The deal killer ended up being that his 57 Ford Fairlane would not fit in the garage.
But Arnie touched many of our Iives. When one of our neighbors needed to move and did not have a lot of time to do so, Arnie was there with his pickup and a trailer. He was one of the first on the scene and was among the last to leave. When one of our neighbors needed help with a rental house to get it ready to rent, Arnie was right there helping out. When one of our neighbors needed a ride to the hospital and someone to bring them home, Arnie was there again.
These are just a few examples of Arnold's willingness to help his neighbors.
There are many more. Arnold was one of the most selfless persons I have ever known. Arnold was our friend. The Lord that I worship has a very special place in heaven for our friend, Arnold Anderson.
I am writing this before our Annual Meeting. However, you will not be reading it until after our Annual Meeting. I would just ask that you put your support behind the members of the new board, whoever they may be. I think that everyone, to a person, who has served on the board has had the best interests of our community at heart. It is a thankless job, but it does not have to be. Thank someone on the board for their service the very next time you see him or her.
Make it a Great Month, and remember, "Life is Good."
