    Emily and Meredith, You know you are in my thoughts and prayers today and always – this is a sad time for you. Zeke was very dear to you and he has left you with a wonderful legacy. We will make a donation in his honor. I doubt I will make it to the graveside service, but my love will be with you. I want to help any way I can in the weeks ahead. With much love, Aunt Nancy
