MILWAUKEE -- The family of Greg "Ziggy" Zyszkiewicz released on Tuesday, April 4th a statement of thanks for all of the support since the fatal shooting of Zyszkiewicz.
Zyszkiewicz's middle daughter released the statement which reads as follows:
"We would like to thank the city of Milwaukee, local businesses and the community for their outpouring of love and support these past weeks. We are reminded that in such a tragedy there is still more good in this city than evil.
We would like to thank the Milwaukee Police Department for treating our dad as if he were one of their own. The respect you have given to him and to us would bring him great honor and pride.
We would also like to thank Governor Walker, Mayor Barrett and the seemingly endless number of city officials who have supported and comforted our family.
To those who have visited and paid their respects, thank you for showing us just how many lives our dad has touched.
We hope that our dad's legacy will remind people to live life to the fullest, to shower those you care about with love and that evil will never erase good. Thank you."
