Edward Thomas Arnold, 1944-2010
I couldn't have asked for a better father. From him I learned how to be strong, how to be funny, how to believe in myself, and most importantly, how to love. No father can do more for a son than that. I never doubted for one second that I was loved by him. I knew I would never be alone and always had someone on my side because of him. From the amazing love he and my mother shared, sprang a family I am honored to be a part of.
It is from him that I learned how to be a loving husband and father. I know I haven't measured up, but to my beautiful wife Joanne and our adorable children Megan and Brian, thank you for the opportunity to try.
To all the family and friends that have rallied around us at this difficult time, thank you very much. Your love and support won't be forgotten.
Finally, to my father himself, thank you for absolutely everything.
I love you, Dad.
