Forgot one thing. Your Mom was always a very caring person. It was important to her that everyone was treated fairly.

Keri and Brian, I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s death. I knew she had not been well for some time. She was good at communicating with me and keeping me informed. Her faith was always encouraging to me. Be sure you know how much I thought of your Mom. She was always conscientious, dependable and hard working. She added something to my day. I am glad she was a part of my life. Please let me know if I can ever help either one of you in any way .

Arlene and I worked together many years ago at Fonville Morisey - when she met George. She loved George dearly. Arlene was such a sweet lady and always so giving. She made me my first maternity dress when I was pregnant with my son - who is now 28. I know she will be missed dearly. Lots of prayers and hugs to your family.

Arlene and I were coworkers for many years, she was always kind and professional. Although, my fondest memories are of camping with Arlene and George. We had so much fun. Seeing the two of them together made everyone smile. So sorry for your loss. She will be missed. Linda Kimball

I met Arlene in the Soul Survivor group a few years ago. She was always so kind and had a wonderful outlook on life. As a group of men and women who all have lost our spouses, we had many good times, dinner and laughs together. She loved to ware the leaderhousen for our Halloween party. She looked so cute. I spoke to her a few weeks ago and was glad that I did. I am very sorry for your loss. May she fly with the Angels and be free. Rest In Peace my friend...Ann Marie
