While it has been a long-time I have very fond memories of Mr. Zukas and Mrs. Zukas—as a small child I called her Da. My mother and Da would visit each other and were friends. Also my brother Don and sister Elaine were friends with Marlene and Janet. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone. Tom Winkowski

I couldn't have a better neighbor or friend in my life than Tony. I want to say to Marlene, Gary and their children, he was well loved and was blessed having you to care for him.
I will miss him.
