Sending your family our condolences at the passing of your Mother, Ariet. We worked with her at BofA years ago. She had such a kind and caring spirit. Such a lovely lady. We're thankful for the time we did get to know her. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

I was sorry to hear of the passing of a beautiful woman ~ Ariet was the kindest, sweetest spirit I had ever met. I so enjoyed working with her at the Bank of America Call Center in Spokane. My prayers to Ariets daughters & family in this time of great sorrow. Even though she is no longer with us in body .... she will always be with us in spirit as our guardian angel.

I got to know Ariet and her girls when she attended Trinity Baptist Church for a year or so. She was raised by a Presbyterian missionary on a missionary compound in Ethiopia. She was very intelligent and in high school received honors in her country. Her journey from Ethiopia was very eventful. I was amazed that shortly after coming to this country she was able to master the language and attend and graduate from college. I now live in Oregon and have been out of touch with Ariet for a long time and am sad to hear of her passing. Love to her girls.

Ariet was such an inspiration. She came to speak to my students at Gonzaga a few years ago. Her message impacted many. I'm so sad to hear of her passing.

To all of Ariet's family-I am so saddened to hear of your loss and would like to tell you what a wonderful person I thought Ariet was and what she meant to me. She was my confidant, my partner in crime, and my very dear friend. We have spent countless evenings and days visiting, barbequing, hot tubbing and just having fun. She always made me laugh and I loved to tease her especially about being the social butterfly of the community. If you wanted to know anything about anyone in the neighborhood all you had to do was ask Ariet. She gave of herself anything she had to others even when she was struggling herself and was extremely selfless. When things were tough she always said God would take care of things and never gave up faith, which is why I know he is taking care of her right now and have comfort in knowing that. I will never forget the memories of times shared, and her constant unwavering optimistic outlook on life and belief of god. She will be truly and dearly missed by me and my family.Bless you all.
