I hold many memories of our cousins, Ken and Arlene. My children always called them Aunt and Uncle because we were all close and they looked up to them. They’d be asleep snug in their beds as little ones on Christmas Eve And Ken and Arlene would come by, wake them up to play with them and their new toys. Never a dull moment. Ken was a hard Worker and worked at Wheatland Tube many years. They loved their home in Volant but moved to Florida twice after retirement. They both Told me they wished they had stayed here. Me too. They missed the weather too. But now I know they are both together singing with the Angels and looking down from Heaven watching over us all. Rest in Peace cousins. Love y...ou much.
