Dear Pam,
I know you are sad and miss Archie, and that will never leave but in time the pain will subside then try to focus on his smile, his conversations with you, his advice, the places you visited, the fun you had and the love you both shared.
You will be in our prayers.

Sad to see my classmate go. Archie and I became friends in junior high school and he was a teammate and friend throughout our time at Jackson High School. We enjoyed swapping military and government stories at the reunions.
