Wry Humor Amidst the Sorrow

Fellow Read the Spirit author Suzy Farbman penned a sweet column recently about a friend whom she had lost touch with. Ultimately Suzy discovered Arlene had died in 2019. This, from her friend’s obituary, made me laugh and give thanks for friendships and the wonderful people in our lives who cross our path and bring us such delight.

In her obit, Arlene’s son Adam said, “She now has the title she always wanted, ‘the late Arlene Epstein’ as she was never on time for anything.”
