This is a sad time to speak with a friend, but a good time to remember. Always try to remember the past isnt here to make you unhappy but to put smiles in your heart. Bill, we will remember both of you always, and thank God Arlene was born in our life time. It was our privilege to have known her. Love Bob & Dianna.
