Dear Stanford Family,
My heart was so heavy when I heard of our sweet Arlice...but then I thought he is talking and singing to Jesus. He always told me, that he couldn't wait to get to heaven and sing in that heavenly choir. "That he was going to sing Louder than anyone there." There is no doubt that he is praising God as loud as he can. He is also with his sweetheart Grace, who he was so blessed to have as his precious wife. I will be forever grateful that I got to...
