    My most heart-felt condolences to the whole Zaza family. I have so many fond memories of Frank, known to me through the years simply as Robert’s, Sara’s and William’s Dad, Mr. Zaza. A very kind soul. Great sense of humor. Always kept us laughing with his funny and interesting stories, especially the ones from his time in occupied Japan.
    He had great insight into the world around him, including the people around him, and he shared very keen observations on more than a couple of occasions that I learned a great deal from. I am fortunate for having known him and I will miss him. Sincerely, Dave
