    I send my condolences to Vaughn and the rest of the Zelinsky family. I remember Maureen as being a kind and caring person, and she surely loved animals-especially Benjii. And my dog-Honey. I so enjoyed seeing her at our morning dog gatherings at Tierra del Sol. RIP Maureen.

    Vaughn and Maureen made Christine and myself so welcome when we moved to Florida. Maureen never lost her Scottish charm and warmth and was a good friend for many years.

    Sorry for your loss, Vaughn. I really like the photo of Maureen you have posted in her obituary. She often smiled just like that. At least, at Lakeland Lawn Bowling Club.

    Vaughn, Vaughn, David and family I was deeply saddened to hear of Maureen's passing. I have many fond memories of our Navy Wives days in many countries and our tenpin bowling days as "The Haggis Bashers". Jim and I send our deepest sympathy to you all.
