Dear family,

It was with great sadness that I learned of your loss. I have known Arnold since a teenager at the Camp-4-Fun at Attleboro High School where I worked for 8 years and was happy to see him again when I would attend summer parties at his home on Rosewood Ave as a former staff member of Beta Community Services. Arnold was full of character and a delight to be in the company of.

May the memories of your yesterdays, ease the sorrows' of your tomorrows . In kind regards ~ Pam (Masse) Bliss

I was Arnold's babysitter from March 1946 thru June 1948
( from the time he was 3 months old till I was 16 years old) during the time his parents ran their store CUSHINGS. He was a joy to take care of because he was a baby, though I had a hard time to understand his problem, as I had a baby sister the same age. His parents were wonderful people. My sympathies go out to his friends and families that cared for him. I am sorry that I did not know that he was in this area. Sincerely
Therese (Marcil) Corriveau
