I was so sorry to hear of Arthur's passing . I lived at Granite Knoll and he was one of my favorite people and he was very helpful to me bringing up my Sunday paper and accepting some packages for me . I'm sure Nancy was happy to see him in Heaven ( we both worked at MGH ) and would walk from the train back to Granite Knoll .
