Now when Holly was pregnant with our first child Rachel, I realized something that anything I had done in the past , that exhibited poor judgement or questionable decision making just went away. It’s like ok you gave me a grandchild, and a granddaughter. You did great son. Mom and dad were so excited,
Holly and I were over at the house all the time. Mom was constantly on the phone with her friends. My mom adored Holly and enjoyed spending time with her. When Rachel was born I noticed right away how it changed their lives, mom was a grandmother and their was nothing better then having a granddaughter. The love and devotion my parents show for their grandchildren was astounding. Rachel has really grown and matured into a remarkable young lady. It’s really breathtaking all of her accomplishments at this time. With the love and devotion of mom and dad , Rachel’s dreams are coming true.
What a brilliant and remarkable daughter and granddaughter we have mom and dad.
Thanks for being their for us.
Mom and dad I love you so much

To add to the last post
Brian was born on February 21st 1998 on dads birthday. That was a gift from God as well as all the relatives in heaven, I truly believe that.
Dad couldn’t believe it. As Holly’s due date was approaching I could tell dad was getting a little bit anxious about it and when Brian was born on February 21st he was walking on air he was so proud and happy.
Dad I love you so much

The year was 1998 , it was February my wife Holly was pregnant with our second child. We knew it was a boy and I wanted to name him after my dads brother Bert. My father was close to all his brothers. Bert and my dad were really close , and lived not far from each other. We lost Burt when I was a year old. I’m still bothered by that fact as of today. So it was really important that we remember Burt in my son, and his name. So the B in Brian is to remember Burt , But I remember surprising dad at the hospital and informing him that Brian’s middle name is Burt. The look on dads face when I told him. He had tears in his eyes and the hug he gave me said it all.
With that hug he said thanks son
Brian Bert Zarky
Say it loud , say it proud
Dad I love you so much

My father , loved the game of baseball and had a deep passes for the game. Dad wanted to teach me baseball at a early age. I remember the first time we played catch. It was on Troy st
dad stood about 15ft away. Our first game of catch wasn’t with a tennis ball, a rubber ball , but a league ball , and the first toss was right on target and hit me smack dab on the nose. Blood started gushing from my nose , I threw my glove down, ran up the stairs to mom. Mom put a towel to my nose to stop the bleeding , mm was giving dad a star and saying stuff to dad. I could tell dad felt terrible. I didn’t want dad to be sad so I gave him a wink and a smile to let him know I was ok. Soon after we resumed our game of catch, and still to this day I remember dad teaching me to look the ball into my glove and then to cover the glove with my hand so the ball wont pop out. Thanks dad for teaching me not only the game of baseball but to have love and passion for everything in life.
Dad , I love you so much
