    Sorry for your loss of this special Lady. She was a diligent worker, she gave her best to each task she was assigned. She was a caring team mate, always thee to do more than her share. She not only loved her job she loved those Children! She was a great loss to our Cafeteria work force and my heart goes out to her family.


    Prayers for every member of her family.


    It was such a pleasure to be able to care for this sweet lady. I will miss her smile and her shaking at her head when she thought I was acting crazy. Praying for everyone.


    As a member of the First Christian Church, I often times got the joy of working with Arlene in the nursery. I am not sure if she requested me as her helper, but it seemed VBS, Sunday school or whatever other event that was always where I was placed to serve. I loved working with Arlene. She taught me that serving God isn't always up on a stage, singing, reading scripture or serving in a way that is noticed. She taught me that this service in the small things, with the little ones, makes the biggest impact. Many times when I teach she crosses my mind, she was kind when others could be harsh. I always felt like this was a reflection of the heart and was what God truly sees. I believe it is also a better tool towards teaching and sharing Christ than any other. Arlene didn't just mentor or teach me to watch children, serve punch and hand out cookies....she taught me to smile in the face of challenges, to speak kind words even when they are difficult to find and to always be kind and loving. My prayers are with family, I know she will be greatly missed.
