    We are very sorry not to have seen much of Arlene in the last couple of years and now it will be forever. Very sad.
    However, we have very fond memories of our times together in earlier years, particularly the many dinners, and with Ken, the many New Year’s Eve celebrations, and many beautiful parties
    at the ranch over many years. We send our heartfelt condolences to Michael and Patrick.

    Your mother and grandmother was a bright light, and the world is dimmer without her. She made others feel special and valued. Despite her own pain, she was genuinely interested in others: referring to children by name and remembering to ask about important events. She will be so missed by me, and my family… With love, Lisa Statt Foy
