I'm so glad we had the opportunity to get reconnected over these recent 10 years or so after many years long years divided by distance, etc. Good friends and relatives are special, especially first cousins. My cousin Arlene was an impressive woman - utterly independent and always ready to live life to the fullest. It also goes without saying that her determination to carry on despite the obvious hardship, shall be an inspiration for us all. That's a cousins photo from 2012. Our generation of Sacketts has lost a good one indeed. Brava, Cousin Arlene, ז״ל
