Good morning, Linda and Rick. Thank you for writing a great summary of Zap's "facts" and family. The photo suits the memories that people share about him. I just love how you included me, too. That really means a lot, more than I can express. Now the next days ahead will bring more memories and decisions. I am truly blessed to be able to participate. Love to all your family, and a special thanks to you both for the continued and directed support you have always given to your brother. Love Pat
