I knew Austin Zimmerman, first as our library board attorney. It was not long before we became very good personal friends and he was a great mentor to me in many things. Because of him I love opera. I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with him. He once took me to Wilmette to see the house you talk of here. I have missed him everyday since he passed away. You cannot imagine how grateful I am, that thanks to you, I am able to hear his voice once more. As a genealogist I believe this is also such a valuable historical resource.

Thanks for making my heart glad again.
