Bill and Family,
Our prayers are with you in your time of sorrow. We had many good times together at club and on vacations. Was also glad Arlene could spend time with my Mom & Barb up in Michigan. Arlene was a great friend and will always be remembered.
May the good Lord be with you and grant her peace.
Forever her Club girl sisters,
Barbie, Nancy & Phil
