Arlyn and her dad were frequent visitors to our house, as Mr. Edelstein and Arlyn took their strolls down the sidewalk to our house.  Arlyn always had something to say that was bright and cheerful.  My warmest sympathies to Michael who was my classmate and a fellow stamp collector.  Kindest regards,
