My thoughts & prayers go out to my Burnett family. My gr-grandmother Elizabeth Burnett Shell was the sister of Arnold's father Norm. There have been so many memories we have cherished of those good old days we all had together in Massey with family gatherings. When visiting the Island, Arnold gave my husband & I the grand tour of where my kin folk once lived. - When we have to say goodbye to those we dearly love, our memories become our most precious treasures until we meet again. Rest in Peace Arnold until we meet again!.......Cousin Linda & hubby Joe!

Our condolences to all the family. I have many memories of Arnold as we all practically lived at the Sheguiandah arena when we were kids. He was a hockey fan for sure and a big fan of his kids and grandchildren. In more recent years I often ran into him at hockey games at the Little Current arena where we would have the occasional chat. So sorry for your loss but hang onto your memories.

Lorraine & Harley Bayer & family I
