    I just recently been informed o Arlene’s passing. It broke my heart. God had called one of his brightest stars back home. She was one of the nicest people at the home. She was funny. I walk by her office and always peek in…to say hello. I am aware she retired….yet I still peek in.

    I will miss her…knowing her face will not shine on this earth again. But Arlene, I am convinced that you will shine in our hearts.
