  8. Dear Arnold Family,

    Allow me to extend my deepest sympathy for your loss. Mickey was a friend and classmate in
    Emporium, Pa. We attended Junior and Senior High School at Cameron County High. Mickey
    lived across the street from the skating-rink and all the kids congregated there. I can’t begin
    to imagine your pain at this loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
