Mrs. Arvana's Family,
Was so sorry to learn of your mothers passing. She was such a sweet person & never had an unkind word to anyone. We always enjoyed the wonderful meals she cooked when we were at John Ed & Elsie Smith home. My husband (John) would say on our way down "know Ms Arvana will cook something just for me". Will always remember the time I spent with her when we were in Burkesville.
I will remember you in my prayers.
God Bless,
Linda Smth
(Mrs. John Ed Smith, Jr.)

Sister Arvana was a dear Saint and friend of ours for many years. We have some of the fondest and memorable moments to cherish for a lifetime. So many wonderful church services that we experienced her jovial smile, refreshing, loving, kind and generous spirit. She was a true saint of God that is gone to obtain her eternal reward. Our hearts are saddened in the news of her passing. It seems that the old saints that have gone on, have left such a void in our lives. we sure miss them, but we take great consolation in the facts that they have left us a road map to meet them again in the by and by. Dear Family our prayers are with you and so sorry that we won't be able to be with you for her Home-going Celebration. but we will certainly keep you in our prayers.
