My Thoughts and Prayers are not only for the Arnold family, but for his wife and children. This was the most beautiful thing a brother would do for his own. I am speachless and cannot let that ball inside of my throat go thinking about it. May God be with all of you..

My heart goes out to this family. Only another family who is facing this can understand how difficult this situation is to face. Thank God we have doctors and hospitals who are willing and able to give us this option. The rest is in God's hands.

My heart cries out for you. "We serve a Great God", yes we do!! And he calls us to serve in many different ways. Ryan stepped up to the call to help his brother. What a BRAVE and LOVING thing to do. My prayers go out to Shannon and her sweet boys, Chad's family, Ryan and Chad's mom and dad, Ryan and Chad's siblings and to extended family and countless friends. I have a difficult time wrapping my mind around this loss, I cannot imagine what you all are going through. I just Thank Our GREAT GOD for his awesome love and so THANKFUL that HE in control of this and HE sees the outcome of all of this too. Love and prayers to all of you.

This is amazing story of two Brothers and their Family my Heart goes out to the Arnold Family. May the Lord hold this family tight as I know God has a bigger plan for Ryan as he is a Servant of the Lord. God called for Ryan and as a faithful servant to the Lord he is now in the glory of our Heavenly Father. Ryan's Wife and three boys. have a HERO. thru this as Chad still recovers, gOD HAS A BIG PLAN FOR HIM. Chad may you recover to a full healthy life for Ryan and his wife and 3 little Sons. This is a Amazing story of Joy Love Faith. The lord will hold this Family as HE show them the way.
God bless Ryan he is My HERO

Deus na sua infinita misericórdia nos ensina através de muitas coisas e com a família soube que o amor de Deus e em Deus deve ser primordial , como o pai disse que mesmo na luta , ele ainda serve um Deus bom .. Acreditamos também que mesmo Deus dê força para caminhar e também dará seu irmão o rumo certo a seguir .. Sempre abraçando , abraçando e levando aos bancos muito mais elevado.

Oramos a Deus para a vida desta família

What a sad yet beautiful story. May the Lord bring comfort to the Arnold Family during this very difficult time. Chad I pray for a quick recovery. God is amazing and although it may be hard to understand why? The only thing that crosses my mind is that God wanted a strong and faithful angel with him and I am sure Ryan is rejoicing with the Lord right now. Prayers to his wife and children. To everyone, if you have a chance to visit the Ryan and Chad's website please do and if you can please make donations for the fund. I don't know this family but their story has really touched my heart.

we are friends of zach & velvet kelm's and learned of the surgery through them. we have been praying for you all each step of the way and will continue.
my dad, ford harris, died suddenly of a heart attack at 36 years old in 1962. i was 13, my sister was 11 and our little brother was 18 months old.
my mom has just turned 84 and all are living good lives and walking with the lord. a few years ago at at a family gathering we reminisced about my dad, retelling many stories about him. i gave to my brother, who was too young to have any real recollections of our dad, a keepsake pocket new testament that my dad had carried (as i had after him.) it was lovely to see his boys, now young men, to learn of the grandfather they had never known.
god's faithfulness in our story and its good outcomes can't possible relieve any of your pain and grief at this juncture. but our prayer is it will add just a little more of the hope you already have in the lord of all.
love and prayers~

We don't understand why things happen as they do. I know that God has a plan. I pray for comfort and healing during this difficult time.
