My heartfelt sympathies. Mr Z was such a wonderful man and he was like a second father to me. I have had the pleasure to know him since I was a little girl. He was a kind soul always with words of encouragement when I needed it. I was lucky enough to travel to Hawaii and Mexico with him and his family and I shall always cherish those memories. He often attended my families's functions because we always considered them as family and his loss will especially felt in future events. We shall miss him dearly. Joe and I send our sincere condolences.

I have had the honor of knowing Mr Z for over 40 years. He was a great man with a wonderful sense of humor and an amazing heart. He was a major part of my 50th birthday and was a blast on the hawaiian cruise. Tony and I will miss him and the opportunities to travel with him in the future. To a great father, husband and friend. We will miss you.
