Message: Ann Louise - don't know if you remember me but we went to Hebrew School together at Beth Hillel. Sorry to hear about your dad - although I don't remember him. I remember you and your mom. My mom, Jennie Greenberg, was in the Hebrew Home until August 31 when I air ambulanced her down to Virginia Beach so she could be closer to family since my brother,Larry Greenbeg, died in June. Please send my condolences to your mom as well, if you think she will remember me. My husband (Barry Lovitz) who died in 1996 went to school and graduated with your cousin at Pulaski High School in 1962. Again sorry for your loss. Marcia (Greenberg) Lovitz

Message: My heart is overwhelmed with the outpouring of personal e-mails, telephone calls, and notes upon the passing of my beloved father, Arthur. I am a "Daddy's Girl" and will miss my father more than words can express. He was the gentleman's "gentle man" and I am sure that the angels are rejoicing because one of their own has returned home.

Message: My Mother, Natalie Cohan, was dear friends with Edith and Arthur Gittleman. Arthur would pick Mom up many-a-Sunday and take Natalie and Edith out for breakfast. My mother always had said that Arthur was "one in a million" - next to our Dad, Jack, of course! My heartfelt sympathies to the family. Ann Cohan

Message: Ann Louise. We were so very fond of your father. We have been remembering the times we spent with him and Edith--meeting them in Lenox in 1991, being with them when they drove you to speaking engagements in the northeast, visiting you in their home in W. Hartford, having them as guests in our home, attending their 50th wedding anniversary. We remember visiting him in the hospital with you and James. He was the ideal father and friend. We had always thought we'd see him again. We send our love and deepest sympathy to Edith, Stuart and his family, and to you, dear Ann Louise and James. And we are very saddened not to have been able to be with you. Paula and Herb

Message: Dear Arthur, my beloved father-in-law, was one of the finest men I have ever known. To carry his good name is a great honor, and to pass on the legacy of his good name and life into the next generations is the greatest gift one can give. I have many fond and cherished memories of Arthur. He was such a fine gentleman of good wit and cheer. I held him in high regard for good reason. Arthur was an excellent husband with unfailing devotion to his beloved wife, Edith. He never failed to honor her, to provide for her and esteem her above himself to his very last breath. He was also selflessly devoted to his children, Ann Louise and Stuart, always validating their multifaceted interests, talents and friends. He was readily available in the best fatherly ways with his time, wise counsel and support. He adored his grandchildren, Shira, Isaac and Daniel, and deposited such affection and affirmation as beloved Zadie. He took interest in whatever they did, big or small. The world was a better place because of Arthur. He consistently valued and invested in people above things. Everyone knew him to be a man of valor, integrity, uprightness, kindness and humor. He was an intelligent man, yet reserved and humble; a keen realist, yet lived optimistically. To know him was to have a friend. He always left a good impression. Arthur and I shared an endearing affection for each other, and I knew that he loved me as a beloved daughter. With a big smile, I have many memories of him loving my cooking, our home and family, including our dog, Jackson. How blessed am I to know him even through his son, Stuart, my beloved husband, who is in many ways like his Dad. I will always be grateful for Art, and will always remember him with great love and respect. He is already dearly missed.

Message: I loved my grandfather very much. Every time I saw him, he was smiling, and he was so happy to see me! He took great care of my grandmother, and he was a good father. He was very devoted to his family. He loved taking trips, and eating at restaurants with our family. He served our nation as a Marine in World War II, and every time I hear of WWII I think of Zadie, and am proud of him and what he did for our nation. I would hope to be like my grandfather when I grow up. We all loved you, Zadie. Rest in peace. Isaac

Message: I knew your father, when I was in my teens, as the nicest person who helped my father so much with his knowledge and expertise in the liquor business. I will always be grateful for the help he gave our family. I did not know until today how distinguished a person he really was but I am not surprised. He will be deeply missed. Ben Zinkerman

I am grateful to have such fond memories of him and I know that his family has many, many more of them to see them through. Say hello to Dad (your brother Eddie) for us!

Message: I miss my father greatly. What a rare gift in life to share so many good years with him, but moreover, to thoroughly enjoy such a wonderful relationship with him, like that of a best and cherished friend. We spoke almost every day. He was not only my Dad, he was a man whom I deeply respected…an individual who earned my respect over and over again simply by who he was and by what he did…especially when no one was looking. Dad was a great encourager. He was indeed the quintessential mensch…THE mitzvah man! He always considered people and enjoyed doing acts of kindness. He left a rich and blessed heritage for his three beloved grandchildren by living with such thoughtfulness and integrity. Simply but profoundly put, Dad made others feel good. Quietly and with dignity, my father passed away as he lived. Toward the end of his days, I listened to him as he wrestled with the paramount question, asking, “What is life all about, really?” With a sweet conclusion, he made his shalom with Almighty God and God’s provision for him. It was an honor to be his son, and to be known and loved by him unconditionally. He was the best.
