I am so saddened and shocked to hear of Zeke’s abrupt passing. I knew Zeke at Dartmouth, where we shared a love for learning Italian and the Santa Fe opera. He was always so welcoming to me, and always greeted me with smile and a warmth that truly made me feel special. I remember my conversations with him seemed to sparkle with his quick wit and eyes that ‘smized’ (eyes that smiled). My heart goes out to his family and friends. I will enjoy the next season of the Santa Fe opera in his honor.
