The amazing thing is that Miss Arbie is 85 years old this year. She is the most tenacious woman I have ever met. She battled breast cancer within the last five year and has emerged victorious from that battle. I'm not surprised. She just doesn't give up!
On top of all of that, she has a heart of gold. When we first moved into this small community, we were strangers in every sense of the word. But Miss Arbie reached out a hand of friendship to us. She made us feel welcome & loved. When we went through some tough times with our son's illness, she showed up at our front door with a bag of fresh garden vegetables, a smile and word of encouragement.
When I grow up, I want to be Miss Arbie! She's my hero!
