  1. Dear Joanne and Arlene,

    I’m very sad to learn of your Dad’s passing. It was great to be friends with your mother, father and you girls when we all lived in NY. My family especially enjoyed Sunday evenings when we went to the Judice home for fellowship. Arthur always joked during our phone calls about a New Year’s Eve at your home when he and I did The Twist to the Chubby Checker song. I so enjoyed our phone calls and he always made me smile when he would joke about that dance. You ladies and your family as well as myself were blessed to have Arthur in our lives for all these years.

    My love and special thoughts go out to you.

    Barbara Manos.

  2. Dear Arlene and Family,

    I’m sorry to hear of the loss of your Father.
    The Irish have a saying, “that to live above with the saints we love, that’s the purest glory…”
    May the Lord dry your tears and give you peace.
    Time heals
    God Bless,
