Aunt Ardene, you will be missed very much. I'll always remember staying at your house while our house was being built. Your wonderful spirit and fun loving ways. I loved teasing you about making brownies for Einer and not me. Loved eating the goodies you'd make at the Cafe if anything was left after I got gone with school.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all! She was a great lady!!!
