    Mrs. Harp: All of us at Cardiac Rehab were so very fond of Arlow. He was always cheerful when he came in, and he had a gift for making every person he met feel special. Many friends grieve with you and your family today over the loss of a really good man. My best wishes to you during this difficult time.

    I loved being around Arlo. He was so much fun and he always came up with the funniest sayings. I think the picture of him on his motorcycle is the best. He always was friendly and warm to all he encountered and he will be missed by his family and friends.

    Virginia, Tom and Vicky I know you are in a whirlwind and I pray that you seek Gods comfort through this ordeal. I had Gods help when I went through it with my parents and I did appreciate that. God Bless you all.

    I remember all the rides that Arlow and grandpa (Bill Eddy SR.) took me on. And the Drag races to see who had the fastest Bike.

    Arlow, I got to spend time with your beautiful, strong wife and warm family this Christmas, 2015. You left a good legacy. Your grands and greats are growing like weeds. Chris and Naomi just had another.. A boy, Thomas Clark.. haven’t met him yet but he looks like a good one, and he’s got a strong name. Your dog is mostly blind/deaf now, but insists on walking around and bumping into things.. I think she’s still looking for you. And I hope she finds you soon enough. I trust your soul is experiencing peace and joy before a presence we can’t imagine. Miss you grandpa-in-law, brother in Christ and friend.
