To The Zimmerman Family,
I wish to extend my condolences and heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Zimmerman and to the entire Zimmerman family. Although I was classmates with Gary, and knew Steve and their sisters to a lessor degree, I had such a growing respect for your Dad. As we were growing up I didn't stop and reflect much about the quiet impact of people in the periphery of our lives. But that was your father. In more recent times, I've seen and spoken to your Dad and Mom (the latest being the 140th Anniversary of St. Paul's.) I so enjoyed connecting with them at that event, if only briefly, but I came away being so thankful to God for them. There are so many people at St. Paul's, and the old neighborhood that made our childhood very special. Your family was that to me. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Please know that I greatly admired your Dad and was impacted by his gentle and warm spirit. I will also miss his beautiful voice with the Barbershop Quartet. An amazing man.
