Arlene, I just today learned about your dear Christel Gail, and was so shocked and saddened by the news. I watched the beautiful slideshow (had to keep pausing to wipe my tears), and saw a picture of the two of you that I took when we went to Red River. I will be making contact with you soon, my dear friend from long ago. Love, Martha
