With deepest sympathy to the family. So many wonderful memories of her, while visiting great-grandma Murray with my mom, and our last happy get-together at my home in California.

Deepest Condolences go out to the Zamberano Family . Mrs Zamberano (Betty) will be missed. She was like a 2nd mom to Donna and myself. She loved teasing me about the Yankees when the Redsox won. We were fortunate to have had her in our lives. Say hello to our parents Betty. God Bless
