I send my heartfelt condolences to the entire Holland family. Arnold was a great guy that I remember from when I was a young kid on the East Side. Over the past few years I would run into him at the Bristol 4th of July parade and we would chat. Arnold always had a smile on his face and was very gracious. May the angels welcome him into the kingdom and may his soul Rest In Peace.
