First Person: Celebrity gift is comical conversation piece

Our wedding invitation read "Mr. and Mrs. Gerald London and Mrs. Carole Cohn invite you to share in the joy of the marriage uniting their children Dana Lynn and Daniel Arthur…"To most people it was obvious that Lynn and Arthur were our middle names. However, some people gave us checks made out to Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Arthur. But the most amusing was a gift received from a second cousin of mine who happens to be a pretty well-known actress on TV and Broadway. She sent us a beautiful silver cigarette case engraved with the name Arthur.

For years we kept it prominently displayed on our coffee table and used it as a pen and pencil holder. Friends always got a big laugh about it, especially when they heard who it came from — Michele Lee.
