I would like to acknowledge with prayer and gratitude all of the many caring people who attended my husband Jim Zak’s visitation at the Mother of Mothers Shrine at Mater Christi Church, and all of the many tributes that were given to this wonderful man.

One resident of North Riverside referred to Jim as a “pillar of the community/” Our neighbor said of Jim, “It’s truly amazing how one life touched so many other lives.”

My sister and nephew wrote, “We mourn the loss of a dignified, kind and caring man.”

I am 100-percent certain that Jim Zak is now in heaven and continuing to do the good that he did while on Earth. I look to the day that I am reunited with this amazing man.
