    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Anahid, Silva and family. I have great memories of Zohrab on Christmas eve when my dad called him although I never had the opportunity to meet him and if I did I was very young since I was born in 1959 2 years before they got engaged. The older we get the more we want to learn about our heritage and thanks to Zeto Boursalian I never realized how many Aunts and Uncles and cousins I had on my fathers side. May you rest in peace and watch over your loved ones and send my love to those who went before you and my love and prayers go out to you and our whole Armenian family, today tomorrow and forever.
