I had the honor of taking care of Arthur in his last days. I left AZ a week later. He was a great man.

My sincerest condolences to the Krosnick family. As a young child, I learned how valuable he was not only to the medical community, and to diabetics, but to my mother, Gerry Esposito. A patient of his for well over 50 years, he was not only her caretaker, but her employer, and her friend. In 1989, I too, became his patient, and was well cared for until his retirement. Know that for myself, his care and expertise has yet to be matched by any other endocrinologist. The kindness, love, and medical knowledge & care he gave to our family will never be forgotten.

May each of you find comfort in knowing that your husband, father, and grandfather is in peace and at rest. His legacy lives on in you, and in many of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless.

Dear Evelyn,
My deepest condolences to you on the passing of your beloved Arthur. As you may know, I lost my dear Patti last July and her illness was a reason wo could not visit you as you planned. Time will ease the pain but never the deep love you had. Sincerely, Bert Levinstone
