January 6, 1950 – January 8, 2020
To the living, I am gone. To the sorrowful, I will never return. To the angry, I was cheated, but to the happy, I am at peace and to the faithful, I have never left. I cannot be seen, but I can be heard. So as you stand, upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea – remember me. As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty - remember me. As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity – remember me. Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved, the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed. For if you always think of me, I will never be gone.

In late 1967, I met Arlene for the first time outside Von Dohlen's on Avenue D
in Brooklyn. For a bumpkin just arriving from the hinterlands of upper
New York State, or for anyone who got to know her, she was a precious gift. She said "hi" to nearly everyone and introduced me to those who "hung out" and many others who didn't. Arlene was a very attractive and personable girl with a quick wit and extremely contagious laugh and there was a time soon after when we dated. In those days bell bottoms, scarves, and Pea coats was usually the dress code and I still recall the winter nights when I'd jealously have to share her affable personality again with so many of her friends we'd run into at the Glenwood Rest and other pubs on Nostrand Avenue; and even an "after hours" place on Rogers and Cortelyou Road. When I heard of Arlene's passing, a special Simon and Garfunkel song "The Dangling Conversation" replayed in my mind as it did back then, over and over again on a scratchy record player. The lyrics seemed to forecast our future. I entered the service and I believe she became involved in some humanitarian work in Appalachia. I saw her again for a few moments in the early 1990's and it is with much regret that I didn't keep in touch with her these many years. There was so much to talk about. I'll always remember you Daly. Rest easy.

I knew Arlene when we lived in Brooklyn many years ago. She was a good friend and shared many good times with my family. We lost contact as
is the case most of the time, but hearing of her passing brought back many memories. So sorry you're not here with us, Arlene, but I know you're at peace.

One of my favorite memories is when Arlene and I used to go to Jones Beach at night during summers to see the concerts. Arlene loved line dancing. Arlene was a very kind and sweet cousin who would be up for anything fun at a moment's notice. Everyone knew her and she had a lot of friends.
Arlene will be greatly missed by us all.

Arlene always had a warm greeting with a conversation ready to go and a smile on her face...every time. This wonderful lady will be missed. Peace is yours now, Arlene.
Condolences, thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.

Because of Arlene I am able to write this. She saved my life and as a result became part of the family. No matter what the occasion, Arlene was there. She was a wonderful nurse, friend and loved everyone, regardless. I will continue to pray for her, She has earned her reward into Heaven.
