I am so sorry for your loss, but you know she is in a much better situation now!
My love is with you all
I just wanted to let you know that my wife Julkie and I are so sorry to hear that Aunt Arlene passed away. We weren't notified until Saturday night, the 19th and I am sorry to have missed the funeral. Our deepest condolences and apologies. I have great memories of Aunt Arlene and all of you. Our love to your famiies. Arlene was married to my mom's brother DeLoy Johnson. I have very fond memories of her growing up. Aunt Arlene used to work for the Smith's in Brigham City. When I worked for Fernwood's Ice Cream I would deliver to that Smith's. She would always take her break and sit and visit with me or have lunch with me. I got to know her more during that time than any other. I also remember when we would stop by her house. She always made it a point to make sure there was something for me to do while the adults visited. She would have cousin Mike take me out on the 3 wheeler......very good times. I will miss her.
