My heartfelt condolences to Mr. Zimmer, Jayne, Joanne and Mark. Though it has been many years since I last saw Mrs. Zimmer, I remember her as a fun, energetic, and demonstrative person who I always enjoyed visiting. Her photo so perfectly captures the woman I remember. May you be comforted by your many wonderful memories as you come together to celebrate her beautiful life.
