"Here is a note from your nephew Eric:

Aunt Arline was a dear Aunt, and I really feel I got to know her best  
in her last 15 years or so when I would be in Reno on BLM business and would often drive over to Portola for a visit, or lunch with her.  She  
was one of my last real links to the earlier generation of our family  
and she had an incredible memory, plus impressive computer skills and very organized photos.  I became well trained at the front door of her house to NOT let the dogs out as I slipped in.  I enjoyed those visits immensely.

Thank you Eric!"

Thank you for Paula who continues to mother me everyday. I know you are always beside me.   How thrilled you and Daddy must be to know little Ted is here and that Amber is so fulfilled.   Have a dance with Daddy and a good laugh that I look more like you every day.

OH and I posted a picture of our plant!...she is doing very well and I think of YOU everytime I look at her ans water her!"

"If I wished upon a star
I would wish
To sit beside you again
On the piano bench
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate would come in and see me through
To endure another day without you
Here-where I can lean against you
And feel your warmth and hear your voice
I am not only your Crybaby
I am your Dreamer too."

This tribute was added by Jack and Jan Sadler on 13th July 2015

"Charlie and Arline, well, another year has gone by and we are still here.
We still think of our relationship with the Browns and the wonderful times the Brown/Sadler Families had.
I've been thinking about the time when Arline''s Mom gave me the best and most important advice I ever had. Love, Jack and Janet"

"I have you with me every single day.
You would have been 90 today.
Instead you will forever be a youthful 87.
You are more right with every passing day about most everything.
I become more like you by the minute.
Thank you for my dear Sister. I love her like I love you."

It is been a hard couple of years losing you than a week later my mom. Love you Nana I know you and grandpa my mom and dad are dancing in the sky watching over us."

"Wow Mom!!  I wish I had a dollar for every time I said to myself this year, "I totally get why Mom said or did that!!!"  You were so wise about so many things.  Debby and I say it daily!!!

What I wouldn't give to have lettuce wraps and margaritas with you just one more time so I could tell you all that I have come to understand since you left.  I would take your hand in mine and tell you "I love you so much!!!!  I totally get it!"

The "Silver Lining" turned out to be the gift of Debby,  The two of us have been able to carry on without you (because we have each other).  We share the memories of being your daughters, and we are brave together!  You would be proud!  <3 <3"

"Oh how we miss those long wonderful phone conversations we used
to have, Arline.
And I'll always remember our conversations at the bear club after ball games when I was only 18 years old.
We love all your children and will forever. Please say hello to Charlie and tell him we miss him so.
Love, Jack and Jan Sadler,"

"Many times this year I've wanted to Auntie Arline about something related to the Janes family and have realized what a loss it was for all of us when she died.

She was a loving aunt, a smart, hardworking woman who influenced in a positive way the lives of all the remaining Janeses."

"One whole year of firsts without your physical presence. Thank goodness you are here with me everyday in spirit.  I am constantly amazed at the way you let me know that you are with me.  It has made me unafraid of death.  What a beautiful gift to give to your crybaby.  Nana used to always share the scripture-Be not afraid. She is very thrilled to know that you taught me how.  Thanks Mom."

This tribute was added by Colleen Janes on 15th July 2013

"I'm so glad I got to know you better the last few years of your life.  It was fun.  I enjoyed our phone calls and "farming" with you.  I miss you.  

When I was very young, you and I watched the movie "Judgment at Nuremberg" together, and you taught me so much about history.  I cherish that time I had with you."

This tribute was added by Paula Buerger on 13th July 2013

"Thinking of you on your 88th birthday Mom, and wishing you were here to spend the day with me ....  a margarita, lettuce wraps and a little shopping together.

Thank you for teaching me what love is all about.  Thank you God for blessing me with this wonderful mother!"

This tribute was added by Cheri Scott on 13th July 2013

"Since Dad was kind of the "black sheep,"  Auntie Arline was so kind to fill in blanks about the family whenever we had questions.  She always had a funny story, or a special memory which not only brought Dad to light, but also Nana and Grandpa and many other relatives.  I have missed her, and wish I had spent more time "picking her brain.""

This tribute was added by Debby Tudor on 13th July 2013

"Our first year to celebrate your life Mom, without getting to share a piece of cake with you.  The ache of reality is only offset by the knowledge of your spiritual presence every day.  Thank you for staying with me forever.
Your Crybaby."

This tribute was added by Juanita Burrell on 19th January 2013

"Aunt Arline was more than an Aunt to me. She was more like the mother I did not have.  During a stressful time in my life I lived with "The Browns".  She (and they) gave me a loving home when I needed it. I will miss her and her shoulder to help me through bad times."

This tribute was added by Diana Simpson on 18th January 2013

"Lana said it perfectly ..... "This is a lovely tribute to a wonderful woman whom we all miss". I didn't get to see Mom Brown very much, but I loved our talks when I did get to see her. She truly is missed!!!!"

This tribute was added by Rick Janes on 7th January 2013

"Arline was really good to me when I was a teenager and I was having serious problems with my dad.  I will never forget her Love and kindness."

This tribute was added by Paula Buerger on 3rd January 2013

"When we lost our mom, my sister and I found each other.  Mom’s death taught us that life is fleeting and family counts. Conjuring her voice, advice and stories  have become a way for us to keep her close, to gather together the bits and pieces of her that reside within both of us.  Our mom is gone, but she’s not gone.   Not as long as I have my sister!  I love you too Debby!!  <3"

This tribute was added by Debby Tudor on 3rd January 2013

"Mom would love this so much.  Daddy loved so much being the center of attention and Mom always let that be.  It is so special to see her in this light, as she deserves.  You did such an amazing job taking care of her and now you are still doing so.  Including the loving care you give every day to her last dog, Holly.  She would be so very proud of you. I love you Paula."

This tribute was added by Enrique and Lana Santamaria on 3rd January 2013

"This is a lovely tribute to a wonderful woman whom we all miss.
It pains me greatly to not have her with us anymore, but I am so glad that I had her as an aunt for so many years.
I admire Auntie Arline for her character and strength.  In so many ways she showed me how to stand steadfast."
