I met zachary a little over 20 years ago. The kids laughter & hilarious personality made me love every day we were together. Zach was one of them good guys that it didn't matter how long its been. He was happy to see you & you picked up like it was yesterday. His family, Gary, Debbie, Nick, Josh, grams (R.I.P)& his aunts, uncles, & cousins have all treated me like a part of their family for decades. I just wanted to say I love all of you & let's just pray that he is sitting up there smiling & eating grams tomatoes!!!
