Audrey -

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother made me so many beautiful outfits when I was growing up. She was such a hard worker. I remember coming to your house for fittings and she was always ironing, sewing or working in the garden. My thoughts are with you and your family.

My prayers and thoughts are with all of you. I was in Marjorie's confirmation class at Zion, Walburg and always admired her. It has been years since I have visited with her, but know that she is home with her Lord. God's peace be with you.

Calford (and all Arldt family members),
I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wanted to express my condolence. During our high school years I spent a lot of time at your home and auto shop and have fond memories of your mother. Know she is comforted being with the Lord now. May God bless you and your family during this most difficult time.

Mr. Arldt, Audrey, Calford, and Dwight, We are saddened at the loss of your precious Wife and Mother. Bruce practically grew up at your house and I joined the fun when we married. We spent many happy times at BBQ's, parties, and more with your family. We have been so blessed by being included in family events and pray that God comforts you in your time of sorrow and grief. She is pain free and resting in the loving, healing arms of the Lord and we hope that you find comfort in that thought. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers! Love to all of you!
