My son currently doesn't have access to the internet and ask if I (Cynthia H.) could post this on his grandma's memorial page. I told him I would be happy to.

My Grandma Arita was very special to me. My fondest memory of her is when I sat with her and she taught me how to crochet. Over 30 years later and I still enjoy doing it. I love her and will miss her. I'm so grateful to her and thankful that she is now with our Lord Jesus. All of those who knew her were the better for it. May God bless you all with peace.

Hi, my name is Cynthia Higginbotham and I am the middle daughter of Arita C. Cullison. My older sister Cathy Rader and I and most of our children and family as well live in Indianapolis, Indiana. We are not sure if we will be able to raise the funds to travel to Texas for the funeral. My daughter and I were able to visit Mom in March 2020 and I am happy we were able to see her. The picture below is from our trip. Rest in heaven Mommy....We all love and will miss you so much. XOXO
