    Sorry to hear of this loss. I remember Uncle Arlen as a fun outgoing guy who would always make us feel at home when we would visit. He was always smiling and laughing, never a dull moment. Though its been years, memories will never fade. My love and prayers to the family. – Jennifer (Bankes) Shute.
