We were as different as
people could be.
Arthur was early American stock;
Settled on MA-NH border
before the American Revolution.
I am from a
Family of Jewish immigrants;
Landed on Ellis Island,
settled in Brooklyn and lower east side
early in the 20th century.
Both of my grandfathers
won scholarships to medical school
and built successful practices in Brooklyn.
My mother’s father became quite wealthy
investing in real estate.
Arthur and I
Bonded as in laws
We spent hours talking about
politics, sports, family,
I remember us watching Robert DeNiro
And Ben Stiller in Little Fockers.
We were at and in the movie.
It was ordinary, loving
Caring and sweet.
Just like you, Arthur.
