    Dear Marlene, Dosia, and Warren,
    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Arlene's untimely passing. My heart goes out to all of you.  I remember so well spending the night at Grandma Mary's and playing with Arlene.  Since she was 5 years older, I thought she was the coolest and could do anything. She would tell me about jr. high and how you could buy your lunch from the store next door and buy grape charm candies.  I couldn't wait to go to jr. high. 
    All my love and hugs,
    Sarasota, FL
