So very sorry to read of Arlene’s passing.  She cared enough about me to call when I returned to Arbor Gate, after having lived away for a short time.  Missed her calls and did not know she was ill !!  She will be missed by more people than you can imagine, Robert! Our prayers go out for you and your family.
Jan and Darlene Wise
