Cemetery: Beth Moses Cemetery
Notes: It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Dr. Arthur Friedman. In usual circumstances, Arthur’s passing would be a tragedy for all of those who knew this wonderful man. But these are not usual times. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our shared tragedy is compounded by the danger potential inherent to gathering en masse in a confined space. Though Arthur’s funeral will be held graveside at Beth Moses Cemetery on Thursday, May 7th at 2:30pm, social distancing guidelines only allow ten of us to attend in person. In order to accommodate the large group of people who will surely want to pay their respects to Arthur, the funeral will be live streamed via Facebook at the following link: Facebook Live Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 2:30pm https://www.facebook.com/arthur.friedman.3990 Though it may seem strange to pay our respects in this fashion, it is the only viable option in these uncertain times. Please consider attending the ceremony virtually to grieve a respected and beloved pillar of our community. Finally, Arthur’s family would like to directly thank the many friends, family members, Healthline patients, and community members who have offered their condolences and prayers. The Friedmans and their extended families are deeply touched by these gestures of kindness and respect. It warms their hearts to know that Arthur meant something to each and every one of you. Though Arthur is gone from this world, his spirit will live on in the hearts of all who mourn him.
