Obituary for Arlen Loye Anderson

Arlen Loye Anderson, age 61, a lifelong resident of Naperville passed away on January 17 in Naperville. He was born May 20, 1956 in Fargo, ND.

Arlen was a graduate of Naperville Central High School class of 1974 and Aurora University.

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Call me in the same easy way you always have.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it always was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near
just around the corner. All is well. Nothing is past. Nothing has been lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before - only better.
Infinitely happier. We will be one, together forever.
