I wrote "My Funny Dad, Harry" in memory of my father, Harrington "Harry" Arlettaz. I grew up with two foster sisters and a foster brother. I am a secretary at a law firm and live in Parma, Ohio, with my wonderful husband, Gerard, and my cats, Spunky Doodle (my older cat, Moe, died) and Manny 5 months after Moe died. I enjoy bowling, tennis, reading, playing games. I have served the Lord Jesus practically my whole life by being involved in various church ministries.
