Memories

Although I never had an opportunity to meet Arlene, I feel a connection to her through her daughter, Sheila Kroonblawd. I have had Arlene in my prayers for several months now. Sheila always spoke so highly of her mother. She will be truely missed by her family and friends. May she rest in the Lord's arms. Thoughts and prayers are with her family, that they may have a peace that only comes through our Lord. Betty Perrone
