My Dear Aunt Arlene,
I remember you as the most beautiful woman ever saw. I had thought, in my youth... you looked just like Marilyn Monroe! I cherish your loving and giving spirit and will remember you lovingly till my dying day.
Arlene and I became very close when we first met. Although we didn't have too many times together, the times we did have were very special. She had such a great sense of humor and joy for life and her family. She would sometimes joke about me being her "other daughter." I feel that we were more sisters! I will miss her greatly!
Arlene was a sweet fun and loving woman. I am thankful I had the pleasure of knowing her. Such a wonderful mother, she raised her children to be the best. God must have needed a loving Mother in Heaven for he has taken her to live with him. She will be greatly missed.
Arlene Baleski was a caring delightful person to know. When she was talking to you it was easy to see she cared about you. I didn't know her long but I was welcomed into her family as a friend. She talked about her family with such pride and love I felt honored to be included.
My prayers and condolences are with you all; I know how much you will miss her.
