Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, loves leaves a memory no one can steal. From a headstone in Ireland.

Tonya,
I am sorry for your loss. I remember so many years ago when just a little boy ran around the house with Pete playing and having fun. He was always full of joy, cheerful and upbeat. I specifically remember one time when I came back home on leave and I saw Zayne at our family reunion and it had been maybe seven years since I had seen him… Funny thing, I hesitated to speak to him because I didn’t recognize him at all!! He had grown up so fast and once I found out that it was him; we were talking about like no time had passed at all. Remember the time that we were all at Granny Melbas house and I cracked the joke about “Back to the future”? Good times, I tell ya and Zayne will surely be missed by all of us!

Zayne,
It was awesome kicking it with you and shooting the breeze in your short time. It’s hard not to be selfish when such wonderful people are taken from us but you are in a better place now. Please keep my brother, Justin company up here, he’s been there for a few years and can give you a tour around heaven! Rest in peace, Zayne.

Tanya... I'm thinkin of you and lifting you in prayer! It's been a long time since I've seen you during our short time at DCC in Diboll.. I guess the last time I heard you talk about Zayne he musta been about 5 yrs old then. Words are no comfort to you at this time, I know. I hope you take comfort in the love you have from all your friends. Continue to lean on the Lord, for he will be your strength and he'll see you thru this...we don't understand and want to ask WHY in times like this... continue to look to him for guidance. I have no doubt you will see your son on the other side.

i will always remember Zayne's big smile and being so patient when we would stop and talk . all you can do is take it one day at a time and remember you will see him again. it's hard when your child goes to see the Lord before us but the memories and knowing we will see them again is a great comfort.

Tanya,
It's difficult to put into words how much Phillip and I will miss Zayne. So many memories have flooded my mind the last four days. A sweet one that comes to mind is when Zayne made those "shirts" for Hershey out of his socks and couldn't wait to show me. His love for animals--just one of the many things I adored about him. And then there was his love and loyalty to you. I loved him so much for that. Oh, how he loved you! And he still does! I loved the way he, as well as you and Christian, fit right in with my family. That is precious to me. He was a remarkable child when I first met him and he grew into an even more remarkable young man. The beautiful spirit given to him by God and your love, devotion, and nurturing made him the wonderful person he was. We are asking God to wrap His arms tight around you and Christian during this time. We love you both with all of our hearts.

Rest in peace Zayne. Give our sweet baby cousin Jennifer, my mom, my grandma Pauline, and my uncle John (whom you have undoubtedly met by now) a big hug for us. And take good care of Wheezy, Taz, and Trooper for us. We will love and miss you. Until we meet again sweet child....
Saturday, February 12, 2011
Tanya: May you find comfort and joy in knowing that you did such an excellent job in raising up a young man that God was so impressed that He asked Zayne to join him for a greater work. Hold on you your infectious smile as you soon will revel in the eternal imprint your son has placed in your mind

Tanya...I am so sorry for the loss of your son...I have not seen you in years, since we worked together in Diboll..but I know how much you loved him and how proud you were of your little boy, your smile would just beam when you mentioned him...I am praying for you, I know words cant really take away the pain but just wanted you to know I am so truly sorry for your loss and I am praying for God to keep you in his arms so you will feel him and know he has you and your son and all will be well for you in time...and all is well with Zane in Heaven...take care....

Tanya,
I can't even remotely begin to try and express how much Zayne meant to me. I know you know though, and you have known since I was a little girl. Every moment I've ever spent with Zayne keeps playing in my head, and I have to say those times were definitely some of the best of my life. He had the biggest heart of any guy I've ever known and it was obvious in everything he did. I remember all of the birthdays when he would call and wish me a "Happy Birthday" and how such a seemingly small gesture meant more to me than any gift I could have ever received, simply because it was from HIM.
If I were to list every single memory and try to put into words their place in my heart, anything I could possibly say would be inadequate because it can't be summed up in mere words. There is a void in my life now and I will love and miss Zayne forever.
I can never express to you how deeply sorry I am for your loss, Tanya.
I love you and Christian so much, and Zayne will live forever in my heart.
With all of my love,
April.
Saturday, February 12, 2011
Tanya,
Finding words to express our grief and sadness over Zayne is one of the hardest things I've ever tried to do. No words seem good enough because he was so good and precious. We've never before known (in our entire lives) any other young man who exemplified so many wonderful and rare traits and qualities. He was precious- beautiful inside and out. There's another hole in our hearts, now.
We've tried to comfort April by telling her Jennifer welcomed Zayne into Heaven (and then to read your own words saying that... well, we all know in our hearts that she did and he is there- safely at home.)
Your tribute was beautiful- and you have a wonderful reunion awaiting you someday, Tanya. We witnessed the deep love, respect and admiration Zayne had for you and Christian- something so rare today. But then, Zayne was truly exceptional in that and so many other ways. He had a huge place in our hearts and that will never change. We'll think about him and hurt over this until our own time on earth is ended.
We loved him, Tanya- and always will.
We cannot even express how much (or how sorry we are that this has even happened.)
He was a little shining star in our eyes...and there will NEVER be another one like him.
May God bless you, Christian and all of your family.
With all of our love and deepest, deepest sympathies,
Earl, Monica and April

It doesn't seem right because this is not the way it is supposed to be. But, only God knows why, and he will lead you through this. My prayers are with you and yours, and may you always keep the memories of Zayne with you in that special part of your heart.
