    My condolences to her daughters, Michele and Jackie. Thank you for all the summer weeks you both shared her with me. I will always remember how kind and protective she was if me; telling uncle Jack to leave me alone when he teased me. Thank you for your kindness Aunt Arlita, love you dearly, your godchild, Kathy
