Susan and Michael Tietolman - 25 days ago

Our deepest condolences to the entire family upon the loss of Arlene, a dedicated mother, wife, sister and grandmother. We will never forget Arlene's vbrant personality. Although we were cousins by birth we were friends by choice while Arlene was growing up in Montreal. We kept less in touch after Arlene moved to the States, but reconnected with FB. It was obvious how Arlene thrived on her children and grandchilden and was looking forward to sharing the future with them. Alas it was not meant to be. May the good times and happy memories you shared sustain both family and friends at this sad moment in time as well as forever. Our thoughts are with you.

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of my childhood friend from school, Arlene. We lost contact for a long while and reconnected with her on FB. While I was in Florida, had the opportunity to visit with Arlene and her husband Larry and had a wonderful evening reminiscing and catching up. Can’t believe that she left us all at such a young age. My deepest and heartfelt condolences to her entire family and friends!!

To the entire family. Arlene and I were childhood friends. She lived around the corner and I spent so much time at her house and she at mine.

Ricki and Jonathan Carr - 26 days ago

To the family. The last time I connected with Arlene was in West Palm Beach when we went out for supper. We lost touch after that. Life got in the way. I remember our moms bringing us together on rare occasions. We were second cousins. I want to wish the family our very deepest sympathies. She left you way too early. So sad and so sorry for everyone. May her memories be a source of comfort today and forevermore. Ricki and Jonathan Carr. ( Susan ‘s Tietolman’s ) first cousin too)
