    Dearest Zig, How do I even write and I both understand what we shared and I will love you always...I do not understand this life much less without you...we have always shared true honesty and faith in one another, even in the hard times. I always have felt strong knowing you were there... I will cry until no more tears come...and we will be together again in the bye and bye. I love you.

    Sincere condolences for the Kruszewski family in their time of loss. I had the pleasure of working with Ziggy in the mid 70's and always admired his skills of making beautiful works of art with wood and his dedication to hard work and responsibility (a trait which was passed on to his son Zygmunt II). Always in a cheerful mood with a contagious smile, Ziggy was there to help family and friends. He was taken from this world too soon but I guess our Lord needed another carpenter in Heaven. Ziggy will be missed by all that met him, but his memory shall always be there. May God Bless the Kruszewski family and give them peace with cherished memories.

    Ziggy my friend, our hearts are broken. Kevin and I will miss that infectious smile and happy personality. I will never forget nor will my little dog Sassy when she barked at you and you threw yourself on the kitchen floor acting like a crazy person. She has never liked anyone with a beard since. Our sincere condolences to all your family.
