My heart aches for all of you. I always considered Arbidella one of my closest friends as well as Shot. I'll be praying for all of you as you go through this lost. I know how it feels. Love all of you! Sue Pugh
I'm so very sorry to hear of Arbidella's passing. My heart and prayers go out to Dwight, Mr.Lloyd, and Daniel. Arbidella and Shot Dooley were the sweetest people you could ever ask for to have as friends! God has them both now and they are free from pain and together again! May You Rest In Peace Arbidella!
Thinking of the Dooley family during this time. Arbidella and Shot were such kind people. My dad, Charlie Long, was very fond of them, especially Shot's sausage.
