My heart is saddened by the loss of a special person! Arline was a champion for children with communication disabilities and a fierce advocate for those who served them. She may be gone from our sight, but never from our hearts!
My thoughts and prayers are with you
during this difficult time.

What a loss.! I smile when I think of your laugh, your sense of humor, your friendship, your competency, your imagination, your dedication to your field, your love of your field, your leadership skills and many other wonderful traits. Arline, you touched many. A light goes off as another begins to spark.

Arline will be sorely missed. She was quiet about herself but found her voice to advocate for children and Communication Disorders. Thank you Arline for your hard work and tireless commitment to your work.
