    I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Archie. He was such a good man. Always was so kind and gentle. I loved how he always greeted every one with his special wave. He seemed to have friends everywhere he went. He was the first person to introduce my 8 year old son to “the wave”. It was absolutely hilarious. A great man who will be truly missed. Hugs
