    We certainly lost a kind & Lovely Lady. I remember her well from the parties for Birthdays & other various events. And she was my friend Connie’s Mom.
    May God Bless you all.

    As a high school classmate of Donald and Dennis I wish to grant sympathy to their families. Duane and Kenny were younger than but I remember them too. Though I never met Arvella I’m sure she will be missed by all
