    I have so many fond memories of Arlene. As a student until the end of my career, she was always in the background. She was truly a pioneer in nuclear medicine as she saw many changes over the years. She was such a hoot and joy to be around. My heart is heavy for her family and close friends. I know you will miss her so! My love to you all!

    I met Arlene many many years ago through our nuclear medicine community. We never worked together, but I would see her at meetings and the social events. She was always kind and funny. My deepest condolences to family and friends. Gone too soon.
