    It was always fun to see Aaron … and Miriam … no matter what the setting. When visiting the Antiques Market, many times I remember encountering Aaron & Miriam in one of their “opposing point of view” chit-chats regarding a business decision. It was fun being a “fly on the wall”, observing & listening while they each stated their points of view, always infused with that beautiful, elegant dry sense of humor. Usually the discussion drifted off, Aaron relenting with a mumble, eyes rolling skyward … almost always followed by laughter! Aaron & Miriam truly are two of the most wonderful people I have ever met. People like Aaron & Miriam should never leave this earth; the world so direly needs them. Thank you A & M.
    Your Friend, Charlie
