Dear Gordon and family,
My heart goes out to all of you at this sad time of losing Arlene.
She was indeed a very special lady.
Always sweet and friendly and very caring person.
When I was a very young girl, I loved running into she and Lillian walking to the post office with Glasford Gazettes. Always a smile, and a happy hello!
