Arnold & I met and became good friends, the first part of July 1952. We worked together, in the Bread shop, for Wonder Bread (Continental Baking Company) for 32 years. The first few years we filled a bin with 300 - 100lb bags of white flour, each night, for making bread the next day. As we were alone most of the nights we would sing together - as Arnold was a very good Tenor. Arnold was able to operate all the equipmeant needed for making bread & buns. We also worked together, part time on the side, for Orsen Rogers, on his Chicken & egg farm. If anyone could ask for a wonderful friend - Arnold was that person.
