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.

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.
