Ii was a surprise to me when a very dapper gentleman approached me at the last station of the NYS Veterinary Licensing exam and asked my name as he extended his hand.
I was exhausted after the full day of testing but was honored to be approached. We shook hands and I introduced myself. He asked where I was working. At the time I was blessed to be working under the mentorship of Dr. Art Kronfeld. Dr. Zweighaft and I began a long friendship and professional relationship.He was an inspiring member of that group put me on the path of serving my profession on the regional and state levels. In 1997 I moved into NYC and became a neighbor as well. We would stop to chat on Columbus Ave and 86th St. over the next decade.
Dr. Z was a natural leader and fine gentleman. Truly, I am saddened by his loss and send condolences to his family.
