    I work on the day of her services but I just wanted to give prayers and sympathy to the family. You are in my thoughts. I will deeply miss Arlene. Who else is going to give me hugs in the morning/ afternoon. so I can get her in her chair for meals? Or set my watch off on emergency mode and have my family call thinking I'm hurt? ( ask nev.. she will tell you the joke.) I love you all. Take care come back and visit. ((((( hugs)))) ANDREA MARSHALL. 1st shift STNA The Springs of lima.
