My most handsome cousin, then, now and always! It all began with my earliest memory of Artie, standing near the window in the dining room of his Oxford Street house one Thanksgiving afternoon. I was maybe five or six, and he was a handsome man in his twenties, wearing black pants and a white t-shirt. My first crush, right then and there! Our family’s first college graduate and military track star from Villanova. Through the next sixty plus years my feelings never changed. Artie never changed. He remained the handsome, elegant, older man from my youth. Oh, I let Ellie have him and she took good care of him for me, but he will always be my most handsome cousin.
Ellie, Artie, I love you both and your names will forever be remembered as one in my heart.
