Aunt Arvis and Family,

I'm going to miss you! You were always one of my favorite "aunts" to visit when I came to Marion as a young girl. You and Mom (Grace Boyd Rutherford) were the "BEST OF FRIENDS" but even more like "sisters".
Rest well, thy good and faithful servant of God. Until we meet again.
