Archie was a good, good man. At the young age of 11, I lost my brother and knew the world would be without one of the good guys. The day before his death, Thanksgiving, his kindness and compassion were demonstrated. He, his wife and three week old boy, lived above the tiny sheriffs office and the jail. Before we sat down and ate, Archie first fixed a plate for a man they were holding in the jail. It was a stainless steel tray. Archie filled that tray, abundantly, with all of the foods our family had prepared, and would sit down and share together. He carried that tray down to the cell, wished the man Happy Thanksgiving, visited a bit, before returning hate our meal. He cared about people, and had compassion for all. He loved his friends and family so much.

He loved life, shared his joy with all those who knew him, and people knew he was genuine.

It breaks my heart that he left behind his young son, who would not know him. I do know this, Archie would be so proud of his son, Paul, and his two wonderful grandsons.

Archie, you are missed everyday. I find myself wondering often, how life would be so different if that terrible day had never happened. I long for the day that we meet again, and sing praises to our King, together.
