    So sorry family loss – did not have opportunity knowing Ms. Zirkle but do know her son William who has for the past several months shared his sincere care and love for his mother with her declining health.

    Praying God comfort family during your time of loss.

    Jack & Marilyn Hochard – Joe too…
