Mrs. Zacchini, Paula, Mike,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We were up in Michigan with family for Christmas and I didn’t hear the news until today when I got back to work and Lynette Regoli had left a message on my phone.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Paula and Family,

My heart aches for you in the loss of your father, husband, and grandfather. I haven’t seen him since Paula & I were roommates at Ohio State, but I kept up with the family through Paula. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. We know that heaven just got a little nicer.

Your parents were long time family friends and very special to my family. Your Dad never failed to ask about my mother prior to her death. Your Mom is a kind soul. I have no doubt your Dad’s absence as her constant companion has been a difficult blow to your Mom, you and all your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Bellaire will never be the same.
