E-Mail from Arlene Dengrove Mokotoff June 5, 2005

Hi Spencer,

It’s me, Arlene Dengrove Mokotoff, writing to you re the terriffic letter from Rick (Richard Spindel). He was one of my very first boyfriends way back to kindergarten or so. I would love to have his e-mail address to catch up with what we have both done in our grownup life.

Spoke with Herbie not that long ago & as you probably know the world is smaller than we think – as one of our middle village childhood friends moved into my lovely N.J. community. She is Gloria Schoenberg Becker. She & her husband, Dick, moved here a few months ago & we are becoming reacquainted & my husband & I have been filling them in with the ropes of living out here.

Our 3 children are scattered all over, but our youngest son & his wife are living in Boynton Beach, Florida. He works in Mysner Park. They are expecting their first baby in July & so at some point we will be going down there when the time comes.

Hope you are well.



p.s. Just love the newsletters!!!!!!!!!

Hi Arlene –

It was such a pleasant surprise to get your e-mail, that I decided to share it and a portion of my reply on our web-site. (Instructions to access the site will follow later).

Once you get to the web-site, you will find the names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of anyone you would like to contact, including Rick.

To make it easier for you, though, here is his information:

Richard Spindel217 El PasilloNewbury Park, CA 91320-1009

His telephone number is: (805) 499-7239

And, his e-mail address is: spinoaks@aol.com

I was also glad that you have a son in Boynton Beach, which is very close to where we hold our annual reunion (Tamarac) on the second Sunday in February every year. So, you must plan on joining us next year (February 12, 2006) since so many people will be delighted to see you, including myself and Richard Spindel, who is also planning on coming (among many others).

– Spencer

Hi Arlene,

Its Bernice (Cookie) Gelbstein Rosenblum. Have you been watching the photos that are being posted? I sent a bunch of photos from when we were growing up and you are in some of them.

Last time I saw you, you were moving to New Jersey. Is that where you are now? I was surprised to hear that Gloria Becker moved where you are – she is my cousin but I haven’t heard from her in years. Last time I knew, she was living in Mass. I would love to here from you and Gloria.

Hi Arlene,

Yes that was me and you don’t know how many times in the past 50 years or so I’ve thought of your name and remembered the fun times we had as kids. Please do update me as to where you are and what’s going on with you.

My wife, Jodi and I, are planning to be at the reunion in February. It would be great to see you and your husband there.
