My son was playing baseball in a tournament to raise money for a 22 yr old fighting breast cancer when the accident happened. Many prayers were going up for Mrs. Brown's safety and recovery. I am deeply sorry for your loss and pray that God will comfort you and give you peace in the days to come.

Arlene, you were so nice to me and always gave me the sweetest compliments. No one could bake biscuits or a cake as good as you. You were always there for all the family events; even the kids' birthday parties. Holidays will never be the same without you. I am so grateful I was able to know you these last 10 years. Your kindness will be missed!

Several years ago I was a neighbor of Arline's and loved visiting with her on the porch and in the yard. She has a great spirit and a fantastic laugh. She was a one of a kind!!!! I will charish my conversations with her!

I am so sorry for your loss. It is particularly hard to lose a loved one especially when they have been with you for 80 years. Ms. Brown was blessed with what the scriptures describe as "special mightiness." (Psalm 90:10) I hope that the many memories you have of her will bring you the comfort you need in order to endure this difficult time. Again, please accept my sincere condolences.
