Oh how I will miss you, our phone calls, luncheons, trips and sharing. You were like a sister to me. I treasure all our years together. We met through the hospital, but became forever friends. Rest in peace and we will meet again someday. Love always. Pat

I will cherish our friendship forever. I am so glad we got to do some of the things that we did. I am so sorry Arlen and I will not be able to give you your final fairwell on Monday. You will be in our hearts as we are traveling to a family reunion in Florida. We both love you and will miss you.

My dear cousin, there are so many memories but our last visit could not have been more special. I will hold forever in my heart the "gifts" we gave to each other that visit, none more important than love. It is with sorrow that I bid you farewell but it is with joy that I celebrate your eternal journey. Soar into the heavens, my cousin, dance among the stars and hold hands with the angels.
