Mr. Zero will surely be missed...I always looked forward to seeing Mr. Zero on my daily walks. He was always smiling and sitting in his yard under the tree. God now has a good companion to sit and talk with...God Bless you Mr. Zero...

Your family is our family too and we grieve along with you. We are blessed to have been close friends for many years. We know the pain of losing a father, father in law, and 2 grandfathers, but we have to remember that our loved ones are no longer in pain. We pray God will wrap his loving arms around each of you so that you can feel peace as only he can give.
We are here for you so please call if we can do anything or if you just want to talk.

Love and prayers to all,
Kim & Ashleigh
