A love affair like Jerry and Zena's is not the norm. It is the stuff fairy tales are made of. It is unfortunate that I came to know them a little late in life so I don't have enough material, but someone ought to write a book about them - that magical love affair. Those who didn't know them personally would have a tough time believing that the book was accurate, for their love came as close to perfection as I have ever witnessed. The world needs to hear their story. It would give hope to those who have lost all hope in love, affection, dedication, and commitment.
A star has been taken away from us. I know she will be missed terribly. For me, whenever I think of them, all I will do is like up to the heavens, for I know she will be shinning just as bright up there in Jerry's arms. RIP dear Zena.
She has left a part of her inner beauty with all of us that knew her. Her warmth and grace will be remembered always. She has not left us, she is within us. RIP Zena and know how much you were adored!
I just loved her yellow XK-E convertible..
Zena & Carolyn...unbreakable. I wish I had a bond like that with my Mum. Thank you for the inspiration. Godspeed & RIP Zena ..dancing forever in the arms of the Angels.

Zena was truly a remarkable woman. She was beautiful, smart, and always well dressed. More importantly she was kind, thoughtful and overflowing with love & pride for her family.
We all have wonderful memories of Zena at family seders, pool parties & family gatherings. I was captivated by her southern accent & sense of humor.
My condolences to Carolyn, Linda, Louis & Steve & their families. Zena lives on in our loving memories.
Your mom was a delight!
My mom and I were always so happy to laugh with you both and share our thoughts!
Much love... Linda sokolowicz
How lucky you all were to have had "Zena" in your lives. What a beautiful lady inside and out.
Carolyn, I don't know what else to add to all the comments except to say that I have many fond memories of your mom. I can't remember my childhood on 21 Terrace without thing of her and your dad. She was lots of fun and always so nice to all the kids. I hope to see you when I come down to Miami.

As a young girl I remember how nice it was to be around Zena because of her sweet perfume, but as I grew older her wonderful manner, her kind disposition, her generous spirit showed me what a truly beautiful spirit she was. Love to the family.
Aunt Zena, always had a twinkle in her laugh and truly she will be truly missed. May she be at peace will all the family and having Uncle Jerry back. Love, Susan & Shelly

My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Some of my favorite childhood memories include your mom. "Aunt Zena" loved life, and you could not be around her without feeling the energy and passion. She was a gracious lady, a marvelous host. She will be missed.
I have only the fondest memories of Zena. My deepest condolences to Spencer, Lou, Jenny and the whole family. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
