Remembrances

  1. Arvilla brighten the work place at Champion Contractors with her big smile and great sense of humor. She was a friend immediately and I enjoyed our lunch time chats and laughs together. I never saw her have a bad day! She made a lasting impression on me.

  2. You are a dear friend and I spent many evenings at your house talking, visiting, and relaxing. I always enjoyed looking at your Raggedy Ann collection and listening to your endless stories. You made my life a happier place. I regret not spending more time with you in recent years, however, I thought of you often. I will miss you. Rest in peace and tell Jack that I love and miss him too.
