I worked at highland and loved being around Arvelee. She was so fun to be around. I could always get her to smile and say, ”oh honey its okay.” She will be dearly missed! 😢

Aunt Lee was a pistol of course I think most of the Brown side is or was. She always told me she was going to get her Harley and ride up to see me next time. I actually believed her for the longest time and also I believe she liked the salt in the coffee..... I remember my dad (Rex) her brother would say how the Aunt Lee and Aunt Jerry would tease him because he was so skinny the birds would pick him up... Good Memories for me and I will miss those stories ❤️❤️ I love you all ..Praying and God Bless you all...Little Helen ( Runt )
