Dear Cousins, I was saddened to hear of your Mother's passing. I will always remember Aunt Arlean as a kind, gentle, quiet soul. There are many fond memories of both your Mother and Father at family gatherings after they relocated to Florida and were closer to us. The good Lord has welcomed another of His angel's home.
