PHOTO: Rainbow Forms Over Arnold Palmer Statue

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — On the day his family and friends said their final farewell, a beautiful rainbow formed over golf legend Arnold Palmer‘s statue in Westmoreland County.

A private funeral service was held today for Palmer.

His friends and family gathered to lay to rest the man many called “The King.”

As they paid their final respects, some may believe Palmer may have been saying his final goodbye as well.
