Oh Bob and Karen, what could be said to help ease your pain? Although I saw Aren quite sporadically she was always warm and welcoming. She made me feel as if I’d returned from just a short trip away and that we could catch-up in less than 5 minutes. I’m sure there are many people that benefitted from her precious warmth. Nothing on this earth could be more horrific than losing a child. I think of you now (as every parent would). Carole

I remember the day Aren got married. She was so happy and everything was so creative and different at the wedding. I also remember the last time I saw her at her Grandma Iris's birthday party. She was so attentive to details when she had her camera in her hand. She was very sweet and personable.

Aren was my sister my best friend. I miss her so much. I can't believe she's gone. We were supposed to be the 2 sisters arguing with each other at 90 years old. We unfortunately don't get to see that but all these years she always had my back no matter what. I love you sissy!
