Arlene became a close friend through the Prayer Chain. I loved her wisdom and her compassion and will miss our many conversations. She walks with Our Lord and Savior. God bless.

Gosh I am so sorry to hear of Arlene's passing. She was a dear friend and always, always despite bad weather or being tired from working at the farm, always came to our Wednesday evening rosary in the chapel. I miss her greatly. May she rest in peace and the perpetual light shine upon her. Darlene Loter (Dunedin, Florida)
