“We met Arlene and Duane at dances in an RV Park in Arizona more than 20 years ago. We subsequently visited them in their Iowa home and they reciprocated with visits to our home in Saskatchewan and later in Ontario. They were such a special couple, very much in love up until the very end. Arlene had such an effervescent personality and was quick to demonstrate her feelings.. We we frequently tell the story about how Arlene was so excited when she saw our car and trailer rolling down the dusty gravel road near their farm in 2003.. She stood in the road and jumped up and down like a child. She & Duane will be able to continue their fun loving activities together in heaven. The world is certainly better place because of Arlene's presence here.She will be missed.

Terry and Sally”
