Mary, Arlen and Family, We are so sorry that you all lost your precious mother, grandmother, great grandmother and best friend, but you all know where she is now and that she will always be "your special angel". I wish we could have gotten to know her better, but we cherish the short time we got to spend with her when you all came to Jacksonville to visit us. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
