  2. Dearest Tom,
    I’m sorry for your loss, but so happy you and Zip had 61yrs together. Look at your children and grandchildren! They come from excellent stock, you and Zip.
    May the memories be comforting and may you always feel her in your heart.
    I feel honored to have visited with you and she in 2017. I treasure that visit.
    Be very gentle with you. The first year is the toughest, but it does get easier.
    Big hugs,
