I remember the fun after Eagles golf league. So sorry to hear of your loss Mark, Tonya, Tami, Jeff and Greg. Your Mom was such a kind, gentle soul. Remember the good times.

I am sending my heart-felt condolences to, Greg, Mark, and Tami, the children of Mary Arlene Brown, and to the entire Brown family. I wrote this poem in honor of my Auntie Arlene...and with the help of the Angels I know she will hear this.

I knew you as, "Auntie Arlene" and now you've gone to heaven to collect your wings...
You left me with wonderful, loving memories, and said good-bye to all your earthly things...
I will treasure our precious memories and keep you in my heart, as I prepare to say goodbye...
When the pain of losing you leaves my heart, I promise I will smile, but until then, I feel the need to cry...

Dear Auntie Arlene...You will forever be in my heart until we meet again...your loving niece Sherry Taylor-Ritchey
