Not sure what to say?

I had the pleasure of working with Zaven at Hollywood Casino. Zaven and I became good fr I am sorry for your lost Zaven was a great person and friend Jerry King.

Our deepest condolences to Zaven, Jean, and family. He was a nice man and always gave a warm smile to our kids when we saw him at church.

Dear Zaven, Jean, & Family,
Were very sorry for your loss. Zaven was a kind man and it was a pleasure to be in his company.
May the Lord bless & illuminate his soul, and may the many good memories you shared provide you smiles which outnumber the tears.

So sorry to hear about Zaven's passing. He was always a very nice and gracious person. He will be sorely missed. RIP.

Hagop and I are truly saddened to hear of your fathers death. He was such a gentleman; we enjoyed talking to him. Ill always remember the love on his face as he looked around church searching for Zaven and Mira.
