Zach was my guitar student and it was obvious from the first lesson that this was a young man who knew what he wanted and how to get there! His easy and bright smile, I will always remember, which would light up a room. Zach and I also shared our love for the water and boats. I used to be a sail-maker and I also traveled around the world on a boat. We would dream of the far away places, but always agreed that Vermont was the best place in the world. My 26 yr.old son is also named Zachary, and Zach and I would laugh because he knew how much I loved to say his name and how easy it was for me to remember! May we all live life as Zach did. My heart felt grief and sorrow goes to his family and friends. We were all blessed to have known such an amazing young man. May peace be with you during this time of sadness.
