    Eric & Family,
    I met Arlene in 1968 when we moved to Warwick. I had just met her and it was Thanksgiving and she brought me over an Apple Pie that she had made. I was so taken by this lovely lady and her thoughtfulness who I had just met. We became friends. As the years went by our sons became good friends and attended the same schools. My deepest Sympathy to your family.

      Dear Jody, Eric and Lee,
      My condolences to you all. I miss your mom.
      She was special to me. She helped me with the
      passing of my 59 year old daughter Debra Mann
      who passed 4 months ago.
      I will miss picking her up every Friday for lunch at Temple Sinai
      and running around together.
      Rest In Peace my dear friend.
      Love you,
      Bev Paris

    I met Arlene maybe 75 years ago when her parents owned a grocery store in South Providence & I lived around the corner. Her husband was a friend of my late husband also.
    My condolences to her children , especially Lee who grew up with my son. Unfortunately, I have never met his siblings. My heart goes out to her other family members

    I lived in the same apt complex as Arlene did. I’ll miss her dry sense of humor…and she always made me laugh. RIP dear lady….

    Dear Family,
    We have just been notified of our friend and long standing neighbor passing, and we send our condolences, we knew both, Harvey coming into my coffee shop in Prov. and I also served Arlene at the kosher meal site in Warwick.
    Many a day we would walk by Jodi’s house, and see your mom there visiting.
    We send our warmest sympathy.
    Harris and Faith Feinstein
