Mr. Zahno was a true gift - a hard worker who loved his family and his community; who served his community by sharing the gifts of the earth with them. It was so striking that when you walked into his produce stand and bought his wares, he had faith enough in you to pay by putting your money into his 'cash box'- no questions asked, no attendant to monitor it. We need more like him in this world.
