  1. Cathy & Fred Zinkhofer :

    Henry and Carolyn, we are sorry to read your father has died. Three of four of our parents have passed away already; it is painful when the person who has always been there for you now suddenly is not. We hope all is well with you otherwise.

    If I had to choose one person in my entire lifetime who has shown me the most kindness….it would be Heinz. I lost a dear friend and felt blessed that I had him in my life. My sincere sympathy to you, Elizabeth, who I have so enjoyed knowing over the years, to Dan, Matthew, Henry and your family and Eric.
