Denise (Batterson) Grabow
We still hear the story that Mother and Dad lived next to Jan and Arnie on Rose Street when my sister was a baby in 1966. The four clicked and have been friends ever since; 51 years. So many memories between the Zack and Batterson families: You've never really danced until Arnie or Mark did the polka with you around the wedding reception dance floor (nobody can spin you like a Zack!); years of Dad and Arnie hunting and fishing; attending each other's family weddings and baby showers... The Zacks have just always been a part of our family. I'm so glad I took a photo of Arnie with my baby girl a while back, it will be cherished. The Batterson family is crushed by this loss, and we are so crushed for Jan and the entire Zack clan. Dad and Arnie were best friends; there will never be another like him. So much love and prayers to Jan, Mark & Shari, Jane & Artie, and all of the grandkids. I'm so very, very sorry for your loss.
