    Our sympathy go out to Dick and Sally along with all the children. Arlys was a great lady. I’m sure that you all have such wonderful memories that you’ll share for ever. Now it’s time for her to rest in the arms of our Lord and Saviour. She’ll be happy to be home where rest is eternal.Delmer and LaVonne Knefelkamp
