He was the greatest uncle ever, I loved seeing him and just talking with him. I’m so sorry for his children’s loss. I know how you all feel I lost my dad Donald Zink a few yrs back and when he passed it took a piece of me with him. May God wrap his arms around the family at this most difficult time.
