I’m sure this is the same Mike Zabonik I went to school with, we played baseball together at Starling and the west side boys club. My name is also Michael( nick name Mick) and he called me Big M –we had a lot of laughs together as young men-we had a lot in common- I wish i would have stayed in touch- I liked him very much- I recently lost some one I loved so I feel your sorrow- may God Bless your family in this time of sorrow – I know God is watching over Mike now andwillhave Mercy on his soul

Sorry to hear about Uncle Mike. As a child he was my hero because he was in the Navy. I used to call him off and on to discuss family genealogy. I sure will miss him.
