Elizabeth I was so sorry to hear of Arlis' passing. I enjoyed working with him for over 18 years and he was such a fine fellow. Blessings and thoughts sent to you friend. Always,
Mrs. Bly, We knew Arlis was really sick but we didn't know he was as bad off as he really was. We will pray for you both. He was such a unique individual and he will be missed by so many people. He truly was someone who left this planet better off than he found it.
We are so sorry for your loss. I did not know your husband but you are great person. I cannot thank you enough for being the great teacher you were. Praying for you and your family.
Praying for peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Arlis's passion, teaching talent and knowledge helped so many of us in the beekeeper club. He was friendly, patient and always willing to help. His influence created an atmosphere in the club that encouraged and excited everyone, especially those of us new to beekeeping. We will never forget you, friend.
We were privileged to know Arlis through beekeeping and like so many others, benefited from his experience and knowledge willingly shared. We will miss him!
He was a fine and gentle-man.
So sorry for your loss Ms. Bly. My thoughts and prayers are with you . Much love , Belinda Holt Lee
