    Bobby and I just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you. Jim’s service
    was so nice. Your family pictures says so much about you and your
    life with him. At a time like we are living in, it was comforting for you to
    be able to have this closure at the funeral home. Take care of yourself.

  3. Miss Ginny, Chase and entire Arendall family,

    We are truly sorry for your loss. Jim was a true family man, patriot and good fiend to many. Family and Country were top two but I know his love of the game of golf and his MCC family were in his top five!!

    We are saddened for you family’s tremendous loss but know that this is a huge loss to his MCC family as well.

    The online service was very nice and Jim would have loved it. We are so sorry that we could not be together to mourn your loss, but look forward to the time when we can be together to celebrate his life!

    Miss Ginny please take care of yourself and let us know if we can help….and Jiffy RIP!

    God bless!

    Keith and Rhonda

  4. To the family of Jim Arendall, I send my most sincere condolences. When I was a new MCC member and first met the Arendalls, I felt quite at home. Ginny and Jim were quite a team. They didn’t just have lots of relatives but a huge family of friends. We will all miss Jim. Ginny you know we will always be there for you.

    I was touched by the pictures and selection of pictures and songs.
