My deepest condolences to all of the Aretz family. I’ve known you all of my life as we started out as neighbors on Linden Drive...way back in the day. I’ve never forgotten! Our parents were great friends that lasted until my mom’s passing in 1992. My memories are good and I hope for your memories to comfort and surround you during this time. May Ruth rest in power...but really, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Peace.
