    Arnetta has been family to me, Flo, most of my life. She will be greatly missed….until we see her again in that Heavenly Home that Jesus prepared for His own. Ed and Arnetta opened their earthly home to us when we were in the Lansing area. We enjoyed and appreciated the special family occasions, the Sunday drives, the meals, and the beautiful yard flowers! Arnetta and Ed always welcomed us with open arms. We so appreciated their visit to Alaska, and still enjoy the good memories. Can you imagine Arnetta’s bravery–even riding a 3-wheeler?? And small-engine aircraft?? We have been so privileged to have Arnetta in our lives.
    Ed and Arnetta — dearly loved.
