"Arlene's home-going is to be celebrated - she finished the course that was set for her - don't mourn as those who have no hope."
As followers of Christ, we have hope ... hope that is founded in the cross of Christ ... He died that we might live for eternity with Him. We have hope that we will see Arlene again and she will be free from cancer and chemotherapy and pain. She will be the Arlene God knew she would be as He hung on that Cross all those years ago. We have hope that nothing will separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.
Remember the Wednesdays when so many prayed for Arlene? It is not coincidence that she went Home on this day ... Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2008.
We love you Arlene! We will miss you here, but we have Hope that we're going to see you again!
