Condolences


For whatever reason, today, at work I started thinking about Arlene and Fred. I had the privilege of meeting them through Red Cross on a national disaster relief operation. Sadly we have not kept in touch since I left Red Cross. Because they have been on my mind today, I decided to search and see if I could find them. Instead, I find that I am too late. my sincere condolences to their 4 girls and extended family. Arlene spoke so lovingly of her girls as we spent many hours together. I still have pictures and I still remember fondly the oranges they would send me at Christmas time. So sad today, but I know she is with her husband Fred now. Sincere Sympathy from Wisconsin
