My dearest Uncle Manny and I have always shared a very special relationship. He was more like an older brother to me than an uncle. Manny and Arlene were such an important part of my life, and all my memories are filled with the laughter and good times that we shared. To this day, I relate our wonderful family stories to my own children and grandchildren. Uncle Manny was truly unique, and we will all miss him so much
