    Dear Ed and Mark, thanks for stopping by this afternoon to say hello on the street even after coming home from the funeral home. That speaks volumes about the special folks you and your family are. As I said, I was very saddened about Arlene’s death. Neighbors like both of you are very special. You care about your yard and the people over the fence. I will deeply miss that greeting by Arlene over the fence! And, Ed, you are a strong person, you will be OK. Just don’t leave!

    We are thinking of you at this sad time Ed. We all have so many memories of good times spent on Eileen Circle. One of my fondest holiday memories is when a few of us worked with Arline to plan the neighborhood sing-a-longs at Christmas. Arline made the announcements, we handed them out, the organ was set in the middle of the circle and we sang Christmas carols and had hot chocolate. I remember those times every holiday season fondly. My parents enjoyed your special friendship and your many fun bridge games! We are thinking of you, your family and share in your loss. Thinking of you now and remembering so many good times. Love, Bob and Bonnie Bohme and Bill Jones
