Arlene Estelle Brown April 13, 1944- May 20, 2006 

Dear My Guardian Angel, The thought of your smile brings warming tears to my heart. The remembrance of your love and tender soul gives me greater joy than any other. I thank God that He has given me the best angel in His army; to be my shield and earthly guide. I thank God for the joyful moments He has allowed me to have with you. I will never forget your wisdom, your piercing brown eyes through your umbrella-like glasses, and most importantly your beautiful, white smile. There is not a day that goes by where I do not cry tears of joy as I get flashes of moments we shared. There not many words or expressions that can describe every single feeling I have in my body. I just pray that you will soon meet me with God when I arrive at the gates of heaven. I love you, Grandma and I hope you are living the after life as the queen that you are. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY LOVE! 

Six years ago, my grandmother, Arlene Estelle Brown, departed her way to the heavenly gates. Before then, she grew up in Stamford, CT where she developed a very knowledgeable mind. From the day she was born, she was destine to be great. She has accomplished so many things her life, and God is so proud of her. For many years, she has been the backbone to my parents, sister,and I. The last days before her death, I could not bear to see her in pain. Even now as I write, my eyes water...not because I am sad, or depress, but because I wish I could have done something to prevent her from leaving. However, I knew her fate was not in my hand. I just cannot fathom the idea of the her lying in the hospital bed, strapped up by these wires and tubes, as they helped her keep her last breath alive. I remember seeing her eyes flicker continuously back and that moment I knew this was the moment God will take her for good...
