"I remember when her best Friend died many years ago. Arlene was very sad. I hugged her. I said, ?you lost your best friend ? With tears in her eyes Arlene was definitely having a difficult time with her lost. Arlene was at a turning point in her life. She was ready to see her husband, friends and family. As McCartney and Lennon wrote ?In the end the love you take, is equal too the love you make?. Arlene takes with her love from her family and her friends that embrace her. A life well spent!"
