“The Fattest Greek in all of the land, Seely-Ole-Beely-Arhos, Sooey”

For many years, Bill Arhos has been one of my favorite buddies. Troy, Bob, Toby and I would sing this silly dittly and Bill would hoot with glee. Bill Arhos was a true genius. You talk about someone marching to a different drummer..well, you are describing my friend to a “T”. Troy  and Martha just informed me that “Seely-Ole-Beely-Arhos” lost a great deal of his ‘fat’ over the past months and has passed away. GOD made a wonderful human being when he formed my buddy, Bill Arhos. I prayed for him constantly, unsure of his spiritual condition. He was so intelligent, I have always been concerned that ‘smarts’ gets in the way of ‘surrender’. Troy and I are losing too many of our beloved buddies and we ask that you join us in praising GOD for the blessings these buddies have made in our lives. Our loss is great, but we shall overcome in honor of their memory. Bill is probably sitting in the boat with my Dad, casting around cypress stumps for one more “John Bass”, donchaknow.
