A loving and kind soul has left us! My memories of Uncle Arv and Aunty Pat always bring a smile to my face. I am so sorry for your loss Angie! As evidence in the pictures, you have to know that your life is what brought her happiness. May she now go rest high on the mountain painfree with Arv. Preserve the memories, for they make you what you are. Love!!!!
