    So many memories of Ben and Phyllis Arbus growing up in Parsippany. Being best friends with Michael and our parents hanging out in our kitchen having coffee and danish. Later, in 2008 seeing the Arbus family before I went overseas.

    Working for Mr. Arbus, helping Mrs. Arbus and Lisa while Mr. Arbus was recovering from heart surgery, circa 1986. The last time I saw Phyllis and Ben, they were happily retired, living not far my home down the shore. Ben was his usual mellow self and Phyllis was so excited to show me around their new retirement home. She was always so funny and outgoing. Even though I hadn’t seen her in some years, I always felt like I could reach out and relive my youth.

    I miss you already.

    Now you can be with Mr. Arbus again.
