  1. One of my first memories is of the McZeek family..Living across the street from them at an early age..I remember Mr. Bill, as we called him was a brillant man. Always fixing and waxing his cars and we'd share family 4th of July's at Folsom Lake, Ca. The McZeek family has always been a strong pillar in our community..Mr. Bill and Mary raised a wonderful large family!!..We love all of ya'll…May the peace that trendsends all understanding comfort you during your time of sorrow..Philippians 4:7
