Hi; Cindy, Nita, Bill and Rick,
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. I know that what words I say, cannot fill the giant hole you have in your hearts, but Aunt Arleen was truly one of the most wonderful people God has every put on this earth. She was my Godmother, and she always made me feel special with little gifts and when I went off to college in Arizona she had the Schneider Family there, adopt me as one of their own. I will always feel blessed to have had Aunt Arleen as a guiding light in my life.
When I got Cindy’s text about Aunt Arleen passing, I was camping at Mt. Whitney in California, getting ready to hike to the peak on Sunday. Sunday was also my mom’s birthday and when I got to the top of the mountain I was sitting there on a rock tears rolling down my cheeks, thinking about how my mom, your dad and the other family members were now welcoming your mom to their little canasta club in heaven.
May God, Bless you all;
