to my Friend Arlene's family. I want to add my condolence as I have know her since high school. We were in the class of 1953. I moved to California and did not see her until our 50th reunion. and we didn't miss a beat. We were in the Chorus, and played baseball and were on several activities together. She always had a smile and was very kind.
Rest in Peace sweet lady and save me a seat.
Love you
Sarah Mitchell Parker
