    To all of my cousins I’m sending a big hug! I’m sorry I couldn’t be there. I’ll always have such fond memories of your Mom, my Aunt Arlene! I remember when we were little and we would come over to your house and she was always so pretty and happy and easy going about having a bunch of us kids running around the house and playing. She always had a good story and made us laugh! Love and prayers! Teresa

    Carolyn, I am so sorry to read of your mom’s passing. It makes my heart happy to know that she has been reunited with your dad. I’m sure that was a joyful reunion! Please know that you and your siblings are in my prayers.

    Over a year later, please know Arlene continues to be in my prayers. Currently I am stationed in the country of Colombia (7th year now) — and it was a great pleasure and honor to have her a a parishioner of St. Leonard’s Parish in Madison. She and Jack had big hearts. She talked fondly of her family. Moreover, her faith was strong and unbending — knowing how to deal with pain and suffering. May her witness be our witness today as well. My sorrows to all family members.
