Arlene was my "Big-Sister" when we both attended DC Teachers College. Then she helped me develop much better study skills by always allowing me to go with her to study in the library. She studied nearly all the time in the library; consequently,I studied more in the library and eventualy made the honor roll as a result. Arlene and I remained friends for life. She opned her home to me at any time. When I did not have a computer, she gave me the key to her home to come and go while she worked. Visiting her at home often over the years, Arlene proved to be a hostess who really assured that her guests, family and friends, friends of family and friends, church folks and co-workers of her husband's enjoyed not only the food, but each other's conversation and company. Arlene was gentle, caring, fun and enjoyed her family to the greatest extent. When Arlene invited me to stay in New York at her home, I never left on Sunday evening as planned, but used the Monday morning shuttle because her social schedule was so full. This loving person is surely an angel already. Patricia (Pat)M.
