Our thoughts have with you daily on hearing of Zetas illness. We hoped when we heard good news. We were sad when news was not good. We remained vigilant in our prayers. To Zetas family, who never met us, we care for you deeply in this time of brokenness. We remember well her visit to East Tennessee with Mike and Stacy, and knowing her for many years. Mike, we are beyond word in our sadness. Love you so much. Tommie and Barbara Ketchum
