    To the Zarlengo Family,

    I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. I’ve know your Family and had meet Mrs. Z back in the 60’s when attending St. Agnes School and then to Marian High School. I graduated and played football with Paul and I always remember Mrs Z always being at the games.
    Mrs Z was such a nice lady, always smiling, and will be terribly missed.
    My prayers will be with your whole Family.
