He had a way of always putting a smile on your face no matter what the situation was. For that I will always be grateful. I may have not had the honor to have known him for years and years but for the amount of time that I did get to know him, I will cherish that forever. He left behind a wonderful family, an exceptional fiancee and a great bunch of friends that miss him dearly. Please don't think of Arn as a victim. I actually consider him one of the heroes. He may not have been NYPD or NYFD but every person lost in that disaster is a hero in my eyes. We miss you knucklehead.
I went to Stuyvesant High School with Arnold. We were in the same group of kids who hung out together. I remember him as always direct, always kind, intelligent, and never cruel (in high school, that's a rare quality indeed). About a month before the attacks, I saw him in my office building. We hadn't spoken in years. I was in a rush, and though we saw each other, I didn't stop to say hello. I regret it deeply. To the loved ones who he left behind I send my deepest sympathies, and a reiteration of what they surely already know: Arnold Lim was a good person, and he will be missed.

I found his business card on 9/22 on the ground, just south of the church. I would like to offer my condolences and perhaps return the card to his family.
We miss you everyday, especially Sunday at John Bowne. Your lively spirit and images will always be with us, thank you for the memories.

Hey Arnold! You would've been 29 on December 24, 2001. Although you are no longer with us, the memories and moments you have shared with all of us will never forgotten. May you rest forever peacefully.
