To the dear Zyniecki Family,
I am saddened to hear of Mr Zyniecki’s passing. I knew your father (grandfather) since he and your mom (grandma) lived next door to us on Burtonwood Place in Delmar. I was about 5 at the time. Annie and I became forever friends. I have many fond memories of him but what I remember about him mostly was his smile. It was so sincere and made me feel comfortable just sitting and talking with him. In 2007 my husband and I visited the USA and we were able to spend a few hours visiting with your mom and dad. My husband had never met him before, and after we left he said, “now , that is one amazing man, I wish I had known him all my life”. Please accept our heartfelt condolences, your dad (grampa) will be missed.
