Sally-I am so sorry for the loss of Arline. She was such a dear friend to my mother (Wilma) and I have so many fond memories of her. She was the most positive person I ever met, always looking for those silver linings. My mother always enjoyed Arline's company and it was so understandable--she was a good listener yet always added such joy and humor to a conversation. I also have memories of Arline at Emanuel's and OES (i was also a member and she celebrated my initiation!) Years ago (when I was only 12 or so, Arline would treat my mother and I to Civic Light Opera performances. Those were the first live show musical performances I had ever attended and instilled the value of the arts in my life. What a wonderful friend and Christian example Arline was to all of us!
