What a beautiful life. I only wish I could have been there to share in the grief of friends and family, but I was able to hear most of it from YouTube. We had so much fun together when we were younger, and whenever we got together at the national convention, even if it was for a short time, it was as if the time had not quidckly sped by. I know ou are lost without her, but she was truly a person filled with light and joy.

So many good memories of Arlene when I was an LCB sudent of hers in 1990-91. Always confident and positive as we pounded the pavement during cane travel, she continues to be a role model that lives on with me today. Many fond memories of visiting her home and bringing one of her black lab puppies back to Virginia with me after graduation. Sincere condolences to Valerie, Andria and Eric. your Mom's strong spirit lives on in each of you.

I don't remember when I met Arlene, but I started to get to know her when I visited the Center in 1989. She made such a difference in people's lives. Arlene was a leader in the National Federation of the Blind, but didn't need to hold an office to be one. It is sad that two of the people who exemplified the spirit of the Center have passed so closely together. If there are blind people in heaven, Jerry Whittle and Arlene Hill have already started their training.
