To the Family of Bill Zien,

We only met Bill on our frequent trips to the restaurant,but he new us by name and later talked with us about our nationalities, jobs and families. Through our conversations we came to love Bill for his kindness, understanding, compassion and most of all his zest for life.

Bill always will have a special place in our hearts. His personality, charm, charisma and good nature will be a legacy to everyone who met him. Someday we will meet again and Bill will welcome us with open arms and that infectious smile and we will all join him in the great feast of everlasting life. God gave him to us a model to love and now we need to return him to God so he can continue His everlasting love.

Love your memories of Bill.

Sincerely,

Rita R. and Joe Gazdik,Jr.
