I didn’t know him directly all I know is I can remember the first day I called Zappos to buy some shoes, isn’t that wild? Why would you ever remember that. I was blown away and not only did I become a loyal customer after that but I started telling all my friends about the very unusual happy experience I had. It was that unusual. They were friendly , it felt like old school shopping when people still had the time to talk to you and we had a laugh . I believe it’s a big deal, every human kindness is a big deal. I have no idea how he managed to create a business were people are nice and helpful and at such a large scale, the man was a genius. RIP.

Friends and family,
The Bible says ... weep with those who weep, and,pray without ceasing; the name a few of its mandates, so, that's what I've been doing here lately, especially ever since my Pa died mid-march' 20; but, it's been a blessing for me to comfort those with the comfort that God has comforted me, beside; I've been praying, interceding with supplication and giving of thanks for all in the land of the living, humbly ~sisteregina k.

Tony seemed like a very kind person. Successful but not greedy or haughty. His sudden accident had to be a shop to his family and others. I am so sorry for the families loss and offer my condolences.
