MODELL--Arthur B. With the most profound sadness, we mourn the passing of our beloved Uncle Artie. The love, respect and admiration we had for our incredible uncle can not be expressed adequately in these few short sentences. He was a beacon of strength and love for our family. Our mom and dad, his sister Pansy Modell Bloom and his brother-in-law Bernard Bloom, who predeceased him, showed us the mutual love and concern siblings can have for one another. We will miss you Uncle Artie. May your name be a blessing! Peggy and David Gershon and Family, Robin and David Gelles and Family, Heidi and Kenneth Glass and Family
