I am so sorry to see MacArthur passed away. I have often wondered what had happened to him over the years. I remember his love to play basketball. I always liked him and even though we had not keep in touch I will miss him.

How sad - it was just a short while ago. I always thought he was the best looking guy around and so good to everyone. I've occasionally seen his face in church magazines or articles - his look never changed.
Best wishes to his loved ones.
