    Although we did not have time to get to know Arline very well, we enjoyed her as a neighbor. She always had a smile for any visitors. When we moved into the neighborhood, she was the first one to welcome us with a plate of homemade cookies. She will be missed.

    Kim, I read in the Deerfield Review about the passing of your mother. My deepest sympathy. May happy memories help to comfort you and your family. Diane Jacob Buttitta (grade school classmate)
