    Dear Clayton and family,
    We are so sorry to hear of the death of Arlene. She was always so friendly and smiling. The last time we saw her was at Lake Ridge when we were visiting, and she recognized and greeted us. We are in Arizona with our daughter and son-in-law, and Dave spent 6 days in the hospital here, or we would be at Arlene’s service. God’s blessings to all of you.
