Arlene, Bunny, was one of the kindest, sweetest, generous, most gentle persons we knew. She exemplified what a friend should be. She was always willing to be there for anyone who knew her, and anyone who knew her loved her. Heaven has called home one of it's special angels, and she will be truly missed by all of us who loved her. Rest In Peace my friend. We love you. Until we meet again.
