My condolences to the family of Arnol. My last visit, one of our conversations was how everyone in the neighborhood pronounced his name. One of the many things Arnol modeled was how important it was to believe in God. He helped me to find my way, when my life was the most darkest. I will miss our conversations and his wisdom.I will forever be grateful and his spirit will live on. We shall meet again as we trudge the road to happy destiny. Mucho love my brother

I have known Arnold for quite some time. Married into the Back Street family. He was always welcoming and had a huge smile. Whenever I saw him, he was genuine and caring. May all of your great memories of him fill your hearts.❤️❤️
