Arzella, your are very special and one of the sweetest people that has ever lived on this earth. In all the years I have known you, I can't remember you ever getting angry over anything. I know you are with the angels now and looking down on all of us, especially your children. May God bless you and your family.

She was a great lady. I'll always remember her as being one of the girls. She was a lot of fun to be around. I'm sure she's partying it up in heaven.

My Dear Zella,
You and I were best sisters for decades. We shared lots of happy times listening to bluegrass while you were clogging to the music...I never could clog...and gospel music. There were lots of sad times that we shared together. We could talk about anything and anyone, which helped us get through life. During all those years, I have never once saw you lose your temper. You are one special lady and I am thankful that our lives crossed. You will truly be missed. Rest In Peace.💔
