Dear Mark and all the family of Arlene, I cannot tell you how devastateed I am hearing of Arlenee's passing. I had always hoped we could meet again for a great visit. Your Mom & Dad along with Hank and myself became the best of friends soon as we met many years ago. Our friendship soon grew into love for each other. I missed them when they moved back to Ill and shall continue to miss our phone visits since we were unable to meet together. She was truly lthe kindes;t, most caring and lovliest person I have evver had the priveledge of knowing. She is now with Gordon and they aree happy together again. I was truly honored to cll her friend. I have notified her other friends here of her passing. My deepest sympathies to all of you. She will now rest in peaace.

When your mother is gone because of God's will, she will return to earth, to you, like a beautiful bird and will be in paradise. She will be your angel, your divine protection for motherly love.

No one can ever prepare us for the loss of a loved one. Our hearts go out to you all and wish you all, Mark. Kim. Deb and families nothing but comfort and strength. We will miss your mom's contagious laugh and heartwarming smiles. One of my favorite childhood memories was spending time at the lakehouse with my Aunt Arlene and Uncle Gordon, hand pumping water at the kitchen sink, using the outhouse (maybe not my favorite) and of course swimming. Love and Peace
