The Sledge family of Derby, want to express our heartfelt sympathies to the family of Arnola. She was s joy to be around and sincerely cared about her friends (customers). She visited with her deliveries of Avon and truly was a caring friend. I was so happy to have taken my mother Maxine, to see her in her apartment. She was very happy being there. She will be missed!!
Maxine, Sharon and Ron

Oh how she will be missed. I was her Avon Manager twice, but she was always a good friend. I don't think she ever missed sending me a birthday card. I will miss her smile, her laughter, and her love of life. She was not just an Avon lady, but a very successful one, because customers looked forward to her visit.
