Even though I am unable to be there, I want you to know that you are very much in my thoughts. I was very sorry to hear the sad news of your mother's passing. I know she will be missed greatly by her family. She was always a strong family person, giving love & support to her children and grand children. Uncle Dave

My deepest sympathies go out to the Abernethy family. May the God of strength be with your family during this mournful time. God is for us a refuge and strength, A help that is readily to be found during distresses. Psalms 46:1

Brokenhearted to hear of Arlene's battle finally ending. She fought a great fight and was an inspirations to all that had the wonderful pleasure of knowing her. Heaven is glorified by her presence while the earth grieves her departure. Rest in peace, Arlene and God watch over her family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who loved her. Will and Brenda McCambridge
