Wow so hard to believe, she was so excited and happy to be at the reunion and she looked so terrific.  I will for sure be sending prayers to her family.  I had such a great conversation with her at the reunion and was so happy to catch up with her life.  Rest in peace joyful Arlene,  you will be missed.....

I did not really get to know Arlene until we were out of high school.  She was from Pt. Reyes Sta. and that is where my husband John grew up.  Everyone knew each other out there and we would get together often with Arlene and her family. She was a great, loving person and will be missed by her family and friends.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Arlene's family.

West Marin was somewhere out near Maui in 1960. One night several of us made a big adventure (I remember Melodie and Larry Selna.) Arlene received us warmly and we had a wonderful evening around her kitchen table. I wish that we had bridged that geographic gap years earlier. Good-bye, Arlene, and thank you for your warmth.
