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


More important,

As friends.

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.
