Z, I lost my father Saturday afternoon. He enjoyed watching the Ravens humble Brady/Patriots weeks ago with a bowl of ice cream - his final wish! He was 80. He had another 10-12 years in him but he knew his leukemia beast would win. It did. He moved on without pain.

Your Dad was a character - I know from having dinner with him and you at that PA casino 2-3 yrs ago. He had a twinkle in his eyes man. I could tell he loved you.

May God bless you and your family as you mourn Richard Zarrilli.
