As everyone who knows him is well aware, Arthur is a very special person.
I should know. I have known him for more than 70 years – as classmate, roommate, business partner, confidant, co-conspirator and above all, cherished friend.
He has an extraordinary gift for giving, for reaching out to others without regard to self-interest.
He has formidable skills in bringing people together, in getting things done and making life better for an astonishingly wide range of people and causes.
His crowning accomplishment was marrying Vivian and raising the loving family they nourished together.
I salute his 87th birthday with respect, admiration and love.
