I ALWAYS loved you Arlene! I fondly remember my visit with Russ & you in El Paso where the two of you taught me how to play dominos @ the kitchen table during the evenings, my 1st & only day trips to Mexico (the real Mexico, not a resort) , New Mexico & the Cattleman's @ Indian Cliffs. I'll forever cherish the thoughtful gifts from you over the years, that still adorn my home. Much love & peace!
