  • I will miss my fishing buddy! Arnie was a loyal friend and was the most honest person I know. He would not hesitate to help anyone that needed it. He had a lot of great stories to tell and I will miss his laugh and smile. Now he gets to fish in the Big Pond.
    I truly feel blessed to have know him and to call him a friend.

  • For Jacqueline and Family,
    Condolences to all, we had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Palmer through his daughter Jackie. We will miss his weekly visits to see her, and seeing him on Holidays. Rest in Peace sir.

  • Jackie,
    Our sincere sympathy to you and your family! Our families had a lot of fun together and we made some great memories. Arnie was special! Much love and many hugs to you and the family.

  • I will always remember the time he took me and Jackie to Cedar Point. And the day he saved me from sinking in a complete silo of soy beans and the time he saved me from the swimming hole we were not supposed to go to and a giant crawdad scared me so bad I couldn’t get out of the hole LOL! We had sooo much fun! Prayers and condolences to you, Sandy and you also Jackie! I am in Texas so I cannot attend but my heart is there with you! May God grant you peace and comfort! Love you! Laina
