Not sure what to say?

I can't imagine how much all of you will miss her. I send my love and my regard for a wonderful aunt.

I would like to send my very best to Steve and all of my cousins and extended family. Arlette was a wonderful person.

Arlette always had kinds words to share and thoughtful inspiration. When we shared emails she was optimistic and highly insightful. I want to share my husband and my condolences and warm thoughts to Steve and all of my cousins and family. Arlette was a shining example of how to live life to the fullest.

I just learned of Arlette's death. In the world of mental health advocacy there is no one I admired more. ECMH was an amazing program I was fortunate to have visited a few times. She will be missed by her many admirers.

I miss you Mom

Steve, you and Arlette's family are in my thoughts. Such an amazing woman. I got to work with her, and you got to share life with her. Now take care of yourself.

Steve, I am saddened to learn of the death of your wife Arlette. Hers was a life well lived. My deepest sympathies are with you and your family as you find your way forward through this difficult time.

My sympathy goes to Tamara and Nick. No one in the world deserves ALS--hope a cure is found soon. I know Arlette and Steve were/are great people in your lives. Love and peace.

Dear Steve and family,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences of the loss of your beloved Arlette. She was a wonderful community leader. I shall always remember her passion for social justice, and her warmth and good humor; a lovely lady in every way. My thoughts are with you. Sincerely, Anne Wilson
