I am so sorry for your loss and wish I could have made it home to see her before God took her home.
I have so many fond memories of Aunt Arlene and the times we spent with her as kids and as an adult. I remember for my birthday that I shared with Grandpa Pruitt she would always make the best cakes for me. When we were at her house and she was making cakes I am surprised I did not have childhood diabetes due to all of the frosting and mints we would sneak and eat......well we thought we were sneaking anyway. lol
Rex and I have had this discussion before about the ham and cheese sandwiches she would make us. All she did was put Carl Budding ham and a piece of cheese on a hamburger bun and microwave it....but it tasted like heaven!! I have tried to make them myself and for some reason they were just not Aunt Arlene's little piece of heaven that I remember.
Oh...and those state quarters, that I grew to hate. She would call me at the bank and want the "behind the scenes treatment" of getting the rolls of new quarters from the bank before anyone else did. I always made sure I had them ready for her with them just the way she liked them rolled, a head at one end and a tail at the other showing the state. I always wondered what she did with so many rolls of state quarters??!!
She always had a smile and laugh to give no matter how much pain the arthritis gave her, she never seemed to let it beat her.
Aunt Arlene will be missed by so many people and am thankful to have so many fond memories of her.
We will meet again....
