I used to think I was helping Arthur when I would bring him things or take him for milkshakes. But today I don’t know if I ever really helped him at all. All I know is that he helped me. He showed me that death is not final. That sadness is silly. That the world keeps turning no matter what kind of day you’re having. That it’s ok to let someone make you laugh when all you want to do is cry. That it’s ok to laugh alone. Not everybody will get the hike and you don’t have to explain it. He taught me that giving us better than receiving. That being protected is better than having to fend for myself. He taught me that brotherly love is no respecter of age or gender. He taught me that I never have to be alone. All my life I will never forget him, the way his whole face lit up when I saw him, or how he made me feel.

I met Arthur in middle school, we went on to graduate together from Riverside together. We were very good friends. I was there when he shipped off to Vietnam. When he came back he was never the same, but he never lost his sense of humor and he never failed to smile no matter what was happening in his life. The last time I saw him he was in good spirits and we laughed about the goog ole days. You will be missed Arthur. R.I.P. until meet again my friend! Sandra
