    The loss of Arlene will be felt by everyone who ever had contact with her. We still have her quilts and they will always remind us of her love for others. I personally have special memories of her. In many ways, Arlene was like her mother, Elizabeth, who we believe is an uncanonized saint. I am sure Arlene is visiting with her right now.
