Please accept my sympathy on the loss of Sister Arter.  She was a very special lady who took the time to check up on me on a regular basis.  She was truly greeted by God and her sister Julia upon her arrival.  Sister Arter was one of the nicest people I met in Carlisle and I will always remember her smile and her friendship.
