    I went to school with Arlene. We were great friends. Even though I haven’t talked to her in awhile. When we would see each other we would pick up we’re we left off. I will miss her. Could not have asked for a great friend and a beautiful person. I know you are a 100% free of all the sickness and pain. God Bless you my friend. I will see you again one day.

    Love you

    I was so saddened by the news of Arlene’s passing. We haven’t kept in touch over the years after graduation. However, we became friends at an early age when we attended Westside Missionary Baptist Church together and remained friends through high school. She was such a sweet girl. I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around her family and give them the peace that ONLY comes from Him…,…….. The peace that passes ALL understanding. May God be with you ALL. 🙏💕🙏💕🙏
