How do you fit a lifelong friendship into a box of words? "Mr. Z" as you were known by all of us who grew up on Twp. Line & Graterford Road, under your watch, I love you. Thanks for the years my friend. The kindest thing a person can be called is a friend. That you were, that you will always be remembered as.
