My deepest and sincere condolences to the entire family. My message comes from my heart which always had a special place in it for Zev. Through the years when my children were under Zev's watch during Hebrew School I was always aware of his soft spot for children. He had a great sense of humor and I personally will miss his inquiring as to the well being of my birds every time I called your home. Carry with you always the happy memories he left you.
