  1. My Sweet Aunt Arlette was funny, witty, loving, and a real “firecracker”. Growing up we would all go to my grandma’s for the holidays and I always looked forward to seeing her. All the stories she shared to me about my dad when he was a kid, my uncles, my grandma, the history of the Wolf and Hempon family, are memories that I cherish. Once Grandma passed Aunt Arlette became our grandma and the matriarch of the family. Thank you for all the wonderful memories, all the love, all your wisdom. I will miss you deeply Aunt Arlette. I will miss just picking up the phone to call u and hearing your voice. I love you and will see you in heaven.

  2. The world is a sadder place today, but Heaven is blessed by your quick wit and funny stories and the really awesome person you are. I can’t imagine a world without you, but you will live on in our memories forever and I can still laugh when I think of all the good times we have shared over the years. Thank you for being my good friend, for your kindness, your thoughtfulness, your wisdom, and for “jerking my chain” when I needed it. I love you and miss you, but I know you you are just a thought away.

  3. I am so saddened by the news of Arlette’s passing. She was a warm, caring lady. Our work never crossed paths. I knew her mostly through the Pioneers and Panama City conventions.
    My condolences to her family and especially to Joyce Chastang. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss. I would love to leave a loving encouraging thought. Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. ( 1 Corinthians 15:26) He has ” a yearning” to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.- Job 14:14,15.

  5. Joyce

    I was sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. Arlette was my first supervisor when I started working for AT&T in 1965.
