With the loss of his presence I know that the sadness prevails but you have a great joy in knowing that he is at home with the Lord whom he loved and serviced. He is now at rest and visiting with those that have gone on before and sitting at the feet of his Lord and Savior. My prayers and thoughts are with you especially at this time. Brother Archie will be missed but his memories will live on forever.

McGhee Family: My deepest sympathy at this difficult time to all of Archie's family and friends. I worked as a correctional officer at the Cecil County Detention Center and knew Archie as a fellow member of the North East Fire Company as well. May God watch over all of you and give you the peace and strength knowing that he is now with our Lord. Monica
