Our deepest sympathy to the Zapolski family. Artie was a wonderful person and a great friend to my brother Henry (RCH & TB). We will never forget the special friendship that they had. Artie was a wonderful man with a big heart for helping others. We will miss him very much and will always remember Artie with great appreciation.
