I met Arline 23 years ago she always had a great smile. She never complained about any pain, she enjoyed life to the fullest. She would be going off to the gym to do her exercise, and enjoyed shopping. I will truly miss her and she will stay in my thoughts forever.

Dear Arline, I think I only met you a couple of times, but I can tell by your beautiful smile and your wonderful daughter, my dear friend Stacy, that you were a wonderful person. I know you will be missed greatly by your family and friends, but the memory of you will bring them joy, having had the honor and privilege of knowing and loving you.
