I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Arlen. I grew up across the street and have so many memories of my wonder neighbors. Also, It was nice to reconnect with you Larry. Losing a family member is heart wrenching. My sincere condolences.

We are so sorry for your loss. Your Mom and Dad were like a second set of parents to us and believe me, we needed it at times. I will miss the stories only your dad could tell with that special "Arlen twist". His humor was second to none and his smile lit up every room he entered. He was a very special person in our lives and will be deeply missed
Love to all
Dave & Cindy Chamberlin
