“Arvella Cole and her husband, Arlander Cole, were long-time members of the San Francisco Temple and were always together. Besides their singular names and matching initials, they were born the same year. Beyond that, I knew so little about them besides that they were lovely members of the group, and am so grateful for his son's writing about his father, to tell me more. A beautiful and happy couple. RIP, dear Arvella and your loving husband, may you be in paradise, guiding us all. You will be always missed and remembered. ” - Kathryn Barbour
