Dr. Arnold Schwartz, an exemplary man, who touched many lives with his generosity & genuine kindness, was a pillar of strength, an airman, a respected physician, a great father & friend, shall be missed by those lucky enough to know him. I personally shall always cherish the moments I shared with his beautiful family. I recall the 1st Passover Seder as I sat at his table & kept wondering, when is Elijah showing up? Is he late? I seriously looked for Elijah to show up the entire time. To this day, I will never forget the sweet smile on Dr. Arnold's face, as I kept watching the doorway.
I love you Dr. Arnold Schwartz, I will miss your gentle kind spirit my friend.
May you Rest In Peace & May G-d bless your family, the fruits of your loving soul.

At Passover, as the oldest cousin who was younger than his kids, I would (eventually) find the Afikomen, sometimes after an intervention was staged by one of the kids. Then, I'd bring it to him, and his kids would be cheering me on, yelling for me to ask for a car, or a hundred dollars. I didn't know what to say, so I'd say, "Five dollars each," for me and my sister. He'd always look at me, with his yarmulke that somehow stayed on his bald head, and say, "In my day, it was a dime." Then, I'd wait, and he'd get out a few dollars for us, which was a lot of money for little people who didn't work. I always remember that he loved us. And, it was convenient having a doctor in the family to sign a medical form in a pinch.

Nice man. Called on him in his NE Philly office for 8 years as a Stuart Pharmaceuticals rep. Always pleasant. One of my favorite calls. Those who knew him well will miss him greatly.
