Dear Zotti family,
You dont know me but I met your father and brother at Memory Lane where my husband resided for 10 months until his passing in February. My husband was a quiet man and Im sure he didnt utter more than ten words to Richard but they did get along.
To me Richard was a quiet man, seemed a little shy... when we made eye contact he would smile and I would talk to him...very short responses but it was good to see him smile. I am sorry for your loss and hope your dad was comfortable in his last days. I think he was a nice man.
I havent been back to Memory Lane since Roger passed but I do think about the residents and your dad was one of them.
May the good lord watch over your family and bring you peace.
