    I will do my best to be be a virtual participant on Tuesday morning to express my condolences not only in writing, but also pay tribute to your parents. They are I believe the last of a generation in the family of Zeitz’s and Guy’s and were well respected in the family as a whole. Hopefully we will be able to see each other in person, SOON.
