    Zeke Manners

    Zeke was the best piano player of all. He could play Jazz and improvise and play by ear with God given talent…and he had a fantastic sense of humor as his wife was Beatrice Manners aunt of Albert Brooks and mother of Susanne and Charles Manners….Both Zeke and Bea are greatly missed.
    Love to them both.
    Someone who misses them with all her heart.
