God bless your courage during this journey
Dear Laura, Rob & Family,
I am almost finished with reading, "Fly A Little Higher" and I wanted to be sure I could sign this before the year runs out. Being a member of your Mom's prayer Group, Mom's in Touch" has been such a joy these last 24 years, but to watch and pray your family thru Zach's cancer journey, death & now this year of sorrow, grief, & joy, and reading the book has been a divine gift from God. I knew I had to write and assure you that as a group of prayer warriors, you are always on our minds and in our hearts, especially today.
I just heard about Zach, my son lived in Stillwater, he passed away on March 16,2014. He also had cancer, numerous cancers, but I truly believe that Zach and my son Bobby are best friends. They were very much alike . Your son has a beautiful voice which I have downloaded his song Clouds, my son was carpenter, but the one they I know they had in common, they are both fighters, positive people, and did not want to burden anyone else. I listen to that song all the time, it is just beautiful . It was so nice that Zach got to have all that time being free of chemo and radiation, my son didn't have that choice, he suffered the entire time, but very positive. I hope our boys meet, I think they would be great friends . As parents I believe you loved and did everything for your son, as I did for my son. I just love him so much and miss him dearly. You have a beautiful family, as well as I do. I wish you ,well this is hard, peace, faith, and all the love you are still sending your son. With deep Sympathy, Kim Pearson, my sons name is Robert Wesley iii.
To the parents of Zach,
I want to express my sincere sorrow for the loss of your son. I also want to commend you on the wonderful parents you must be to have raised such kind, caring and amazing sons and daughters. I have just finished watching Sachs video, "last days", and it touched my heart . I lost my mom last February to cancer, my brother in November and my good friend in December. I have been fighting debilitating depression and have wallowed in despair over my losses, but watching Zach has given me hope. He will be forever in my heart as someone who changed my life. I will share his story and his incredible outlook on life. As parents our children are a reflection of how we raised them, saying that, you both must be so proud. All four of your children are such a gift to this world.
What a beautiful young man. I pray for your family, what a beautiful gift God has given to you and to the world. If only for a moment.
Thank you for sharing Zachs Legacy .. Such an inspirational young man so wise beyond his years . God bless you and your family as you go through this journey and I believe Zach will continue to do his work from heaven and forever be in your hearts !! ( Clouds) is so serene and spiritual !!!I I listen to it often ... I pray the angels continue to hold you in gods grace today and always ..
You are an amazing young man, who will stay in my heart and lead me to a fuller life, to honor yours and mine.
Dear Sobiech family,
Zach - Thank you for your inspiration although I do not know you personally, you touched me as well as so many around the world. You were taken from us way too soon and now I guess God has plans for you as his' angel above the clouds. To your family I wish to express my deepest sympathy. Your son has completed his journey here and called to another place. His deep insight will live on beyond us all. I played his song "Clouds" 10 times and cry because it was so well understood. I will now live my life to the fullest and think of him.
Thank you for being such an inspiration to so many. You have helped so many realize the true beauty of life and you have inspired people to live theirs to the fullest. Thank you for the gift you've given to me and to so many others. You will never be forgotten. Merry Christmas to you and maybe someday I'll see you again.
Thank you, your life has inspired me to do more with my own. Your words of encouragement still reach out to more everyday. Who would have ever imagined a 17 year old would leave such a legacy. You are God's champion.
You Inspired me and not knowing you personally I felt connected to you. Your an angel in God's heaven. Watch over your loved ones, you might be gone in this world but your not gone in people's hearts. You lived on and your still living.
ZACH HAS FOREVER CHANGED MY LIFE. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD ACTUALLY GET TO SEE ONE OF GODS ANGELS THROUGH MY EYES BUT GOD HAS PROVED ME WRONG. THANK GOD FOR THE LIFE OF ZACH SOBIECH AND MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
I WAS REALLY TOUCHED BY ZACH'S STORY.VERY INSPIRATIONAL VIDEO ABOUT YOUR LAST DAYS.GOD TRULY HAS GAINED AN ANGEL,GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL
Zach, you have touched my heart bro. May you rest in peace. I wish I could hug your parents, brothers and sisters for being such amazing people. God bless, I can't stop crying. Xoxoxo
To the family of Zach,
I lost a dear classmate mine at the age of 19 shortly after H.S. Graduation from White Bear Lake to osteosarcoma in his leg. Your song clouds has given me some peace and hope that together we can end childhood cancer.
To the family of Zach. We are so sorry for your loss. I remember when Zach was on KS95 last year but I missed his song. When they had the choir singing his song I really wanted to go, but was not able to. The first time I saw the video from the MOA I was in tears. I showed my three daughters the video and now that song and your family is in our hearts forever. Even my granddaughters sing it all the time. It was so moving to see all those people come together for that event. You were blessed to have such a wonderful son and we are truly sorry that his time on earth was so short. May God be with you and help you through this trying time and help you to remember and cherish your time with Zach. This is one person I will never forget.
Teresa Olson and family....
Thank you for writing that song. I can't imagine how tough it must have been knowing you were going to die and trying to figure out how to say goodbye to everyone you love. I think you did the best anyone could do in that situation! I have had multiple family members with cancer and a dear friend, so cancer stories are not new to me. Your story in particular has touched me very much! Your song is so beautiful.... here I am a complete stranger, and your song has moved me to come here and write you a note. Your song has reminded me that life is so precious and fleeting, and to hug my parents and my sisters everyday. Thank you, Zach. Thank you for being strong enough to express yourself through music while you were dying. Many people are not able to show that much strength and character. You've blessed me through your song, thank you. I hope your parents see this so that they know that you've made an impact in yet one more person's life, although I'm sure that is no news to them ;) God bless you, Sobiech family! <3
Zach, although I never got the honor of meeting you your song is in my heart forever. It is beautiful. You have an amazing family and I know you will be missed by them and the millions who listen to your song every day. An inspiration to everyone.
My 9 month old daughter was born with cancer. That song Clouds brought tears to my eyes. I hope my daughter will live long enough to make an impact like your son has! He was talented! God bless his family!
God added another angel in Heaven
Thank you for being a testament to my family on what it means to truly live!
Zach I can't tell you enough how much you have changed my life. Your an inspiration and the strongest, most mature individual for dealing with your situation the way you did. I'll pray for you, Amy and your family. Tell my dad I know he hears my prayers too ! Thanks again zach, your the man. Downloading clouds at the momment(:
Zach, your story touched me in a way no one else has before. I am a 13 year old, in middle school, and how brave you are is really inspiring to me. Your song is amazing.
You are truly inspiring... Heaven has welcomed another angel...
Zach your words in your song "clouds" was not only beautiful, real, and deep, but inspiring. My brother Pete passed away 9/11/10 from Osteosarcoma. Me, my mom, and dad watched his story and song together one evening and it touched us in such a deep way due to the fact that we have gone through a very similar loss. Osteosarcoma is a very rare type of cancer, and through Zach's story it has allowed people to become more aware of this type of cancer. My brother was very much like Zach, a fighter, a beautiful human being that was an incredible son, brother, and friend, and positive until the end, and had the same beautiful, contagious smile. My family are very blessed to hear Zach's story, as we have such a similar story of our own. Thank you Zach for sharing your story, it gave my family more peace. Thank you with all of our hearts. In memory of Zach Sobiech, and Peter Hoag, my brother.
Zach..your story touched my heart.I want to thank you for sharing your life with all of us.I am sure God needed his special angel back. To his family what a wonderful son you raised.May God watch over all of you until it's time to meet Zach again.
I just learned about this amazing kid, his incredible song...and the love he gave to us. I don't know where you are Zach, but I know that wherever your beautiful soul is, there is joy, there is love. Play now in the Clouds...we live you...we miss you and you are blessed and a blessing
Zach you touched me with your music, your beautiful spirit and the joy your incredible smile revealed. I have listened to your music since I heard about you last December, I feel like I knew you. To the entire Sobiech family and all Zachs friends I'm so sorry for your loss... Thank you for sharing Zach, he will forever inspire me
May the good lord bless him and keep him. I'am so sorry for your loss.
To Zach's Mom,
My name is Jackson and I am 7 years old. My Mom watched Zach's story one day. I loved to listen to his song. I listened to it every day for awhile. I read his twitter posts too. I am really sorry that Zach died. I was praying for him to make it. I hope you all remember how cool a kid he was and never forget that.
It can be so hard to face the first year without your loved one, but the love of family and friends can carry you through.
I just want to say that your son was an amazing person..He has touched my life in such a way that words can not describe it.God Bless You in this difficult time.Just remember he is with you all the time now even though you can"t see him.
There are not enough words to describe Zach. One that comes to me the most is inspiring. Who would have thought that watching a 20 minute video would change my life, but it has in many ways.My deepest sympathy to Zachs mom and dad, brother and sisters and his girlfriend Amy. Also to Sammy his special friend. Your music with Zach is truely amazing, especially " fix me up".I can't get through it with a dry eye. I did not know Zach I wish I could have met this wonderful young man who fought to the very end. Maybe I will someday. You are all in my prayers...
You are now singing in God's choir. Thank you for your beautiful life
I love you.
to zach's mom ... god bless you.
you will be in my prayers every day .
as i too ..have lost my only son ...at age 29.. took his life...
9 monthhs prior my dad passed ..
i guess what i am saying is ...no matter how bad it seems ...it could be worse
only time will heal ...so dont forget all the good that (Gods Angel -zach )did here on earth ... his song CLOUDS has touched many hearts as well as will continue in the future
he was needed elsewhere in this world to look over others and be their guardian angles
god bless you
God bless Zach Sobiech, and his family and friends he leaves behind. Once again, God takes something that starts out small and blesses it into something magnificent and miricalous such as Zach's life story, insights, inspiration and of course his beautiful words & songs. I lost my 22 year old son a little over a year ago and I choose to remember him like this song says. The song and Zach's story shows the world that good is still in the world and far outweighs evil. We just need to remember that. This life is not fair in our eyes but this life is just a stopping off point to an eternal life that we cannot necessarily fully comprehend. Great reminder and we need to see more of this kind of news/media instead of the ugly side of man. Clouds, up up up !!! :)
Zach , what a brave and beautiful person You were. May god bless the Sobiech family. Lisa (NYC).
Why did u have to go so soon?
I recently found Zach's videos on Youtube, his songs are inspirational and I loved watching the videos. I am 15 years old and have a friend with this same form of cancer. This has given me hope that he will be okay with whatever the outcome is. Thank you for raising a great kid and continuing to support cancer! :)
You were an inspiration to all, even those who did not know you. God Bless You
To the Sobiech Family,
My name is Jorge Duenes and from Las Vegas,NV. My family and I lost my baby cousin to a fatal car accident at the age of 16. I know how it feels to lose a loved one. I can't fathom of losing a child. I pray that our Lord and his angels comfort you through your loss. I know the Lord wants his son home so he don't have to be in pain anymore. I just could see he shined his light for Jesus. The video of Zach and the entire family touched me and are an example to all other families out there. May God bless The entire Sobiech Family and all of Zachs friends. We send you with much Love our condolences.

I never had the pleasure of meeting you personally Zach, but oh boy did you have such an amazing impact! I watch the documentary that was done to tell the world about how awesome you truly are and I cant help but be blown away by how positive and how strong you are as a person. Youve accomplished so much in your 18 years and your knowledge and the way you lived your life speaks so much about the kind of person you were. Thank you for opening up to the world and letting us in, if only through your beautiful song and your encouraging words. I for one will not forget all that youve taught me about life and how living every day to the fullest is truly the only way to go. I know your dancing among the clouds now and shining down that beautiful ray that seems to radiate from you and your beautiful spirit. If you can, send a reminder from time to time to remind us all that the world is truly a beautiful place. Bless you Zach!

I wanted to send my warmest thoughts to the Sobiech family and his dear girlfriend and friends. I was never blessed to have met Zach but since finding out about him just this week, my 7 year old daughter and I can not stop listening to his song or watching his "My Last Days" movie. I myself have a 16 year old son and could never imagine what you are going though. My prayers and thought are sent your way. Keep your heads held high so he can always see your beautiful smiles while looking down on you. God Bless You All!!!
What a blessing to this world! I'm so sorry, beyond words, that we have lost such a lovely, lovely person. My heart and prayers goes out to the family and also his girlfriend. Zach definitely made this world a better place and I know that he is up in heaven where he belongs.
I didn't know Zach personally, I never had the opportunity to cross paths with him, but his story touched my heart. I wish the family and loved ones comfort. Thank you Zach for being an inspiration to children who have to deal with cancer daily. You're a brave soul. and I know you'll be in the clouds waiting for your family & friends to reunite with you someday. Rock on child <3
I feel so sad that such a talented young man. The song is so uplifting. You touched me so much. I will pray for your family.
Zach has blessed this world with his music and story. Carpe Diem and rest well Zach
An amazing person, thanks for sharing Zach's story with the world. My condolences to all his family and friends, my heart goes out to you at this difficult time.
I have been holding space for the whole Sobiech family, friends and especially his girlfriend through what must be a heart wrenching time. Thank you for sharing him with the world.
Zacks story has touched me like no other.He was so brave. I also just heard his story on Monday. I will think of you every time I look at the clouds, and I will see your beautiful smile. Zack you are an AMAZING young man!!
If it helps... I want you to know that there is a soul in Beacon Falls, CT that wakes in the morning with "Clouds" in her head... Such an inspiring song from another "kindred soul" that will live long after any of us... How lucky you were to enjoy 18 years with him, and how lucky I feel that he chose to share a part of himself with people who otherwise would never have known him. So many aspire to "greatness", and think they have acheived it through fame or the acquisition of money... Zach, in his quiet way just reminded us all what it really is... The ability to "reach out and affect other human beings in a positive way" The gentle ripple he started will continue, I'm sure, for a long, long time! Thank you for sharing him with us all...
I cannot imagine your loss, Never met Zack,but I can feel all of life and love from him shinning!
I want to send my condolences to the family and friends of Zach.
Enclosed are some poems in support and for hope.
Best of Luck On Your Goals
I am sure you will accomplish the many goals you set out to achieve.
You are a determined smart and independent individual that is fair and compassionate.
You are outgoing and get along well with others.
Even though life throws us curves, you will stay on course and bring sunshine to others even when the rain clouds are storming.
I wish you the best in all you do.
Distinctions Of Music And Love
Music like love can bring many a feeling to you.
It can put chills through your body, tears in your eyes and pain in your heart and soul.
Music can give you a natural high and then bring you down to your knees.
When you hear certain songs you are reminded of people and places you have known and seen.
It reminds you of people you have liked and those who you will only be with in your dreams.
The beauty of a song like the beauty of a love can be two of life's biggest ups and downs.
They are both works of art with uniqueness and beauty that radiates out and has messages deep within.
A Guide A Teacher
Motivates by assisting and teaching others to be their best.
Educating today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders.
Has words of wisdom.
Like a sailor on a voyage.
Through the calm and stormy days,
You'll be the guiding light.
Has dedication that exceeds expectations.
Like spring each day is a new beginning.
Spring is like a warm and aromatic breeze.
Colored foliage, wet and warming a new beginning.
Hearing music outdoors.
Hearing doves "Coo"
The leaves rustle through the trees.
The brook is flowing with ease.
The mountains are majestic in size and beauty.
Trees are the largest plant in stance.
Month Of May Poem
May is for birds.
May is for flowers.
May is for blue skies.
May is for the green grass,
That is soft and ticklish on my feet.
A Unique and Super Lady
That special and beautiful one in your arms is a comforting and tender feeling you wish could last forever.
The bond and power of a king holding his queen is a rare beauty in a world of heartache and pain.
When someone comes along that you understand and they understand you, it is unique and doesn't happen very often.
A Part Of My Life
You get more beautiful each day and I feel blessed to have you in my life and spend time with you.
You see things in me that others do not.
I thank you for your understanding, humor and many other qualities you add to my life.
You Will Always Love Her
She will always be a part of your thoughts as you had someone that was caring and loved you as not many have. They saw in you what others did not and looked inside as not many do.
You cared about them, as they will always have a special place in your heart as an angel, Goddess and adding mystery to your life.
I hope someday I can be better friends with her or more again. I know if it does happen it will be many years on in the next life.
Zach sounds like such a wonderful young man. My teenage daughter and all her friends just love Clouds and play it all the time. I find it so amazing how Zach's music has touched so many people's lives, both be hearing it and by supporting research when buying it. Thank you for sharing his story and may God be with you now.
An inspirational, beautiful and talented young man who was taken to our savior much to soon. God must have an important job for him. God bless the Sobiech family.
I, like so many others, know you only from your facebook video. you touched my heart young man, and the hearts of millions. May your eternity be as beautiful as your smile.
Zach has inspired so many people he is a true angel <3
To the family and dear friends of Zach, I pray for strength for you as you adjust to life without Zach. He's not here with you today, but he will always be in your hearts. For a young man such as Zach to have touched so many people all over the world, is truly amazing and a testament to what a great person he was. Zach has touched my heart and helped me to deal with my grandson's brain cancer as he is in his final weeks. I will never forget Zach Sobiech.

What a precious family, I just wish all of our prayers could have been grated and given him a long life...I guess God had something special waiting for him...I hope went he went "Up in the clouds" it was fantastic as he hoped...thank you for sharing him with the world.
What can you say about this wonderful boy. His personality was so strong and lovable. He is now one of God's angels and his light will shine forever!
My deepest sympathies to the family. No words cannot express how or make it better!
Only God will guide and bless you all through this sad time.
Touched by a stranger. Thank You for sharing.
May God comfort and encourage you during this time. Sending prayers for all of Zach's family and friends.

Thank you!!!
I was praying for a miracle...I listened to Zachs songs and read everything I could find on him and I felt like I almost knew him...he definitely touched me in ways that he will never know. As they say.."it's so hard to say goodbye...". Many tears are flowing for a young man that has inspired many. Love and prayers to all of Zach's family and friends.
I have been so touched by Zach and his "Life" after diagnosis. I love his ability to find happiness amidst his trials. I am sorry for your families loss. Lynne Varega
I couldn't stop crying watching his video...I've been through this before...with my best friend.

My thoughts and prayers are with Zach's beautiful family, Amy and friends and everyone that had the honor of knowing and meeting Zach.

You are truly a phenomenal young man and now you are a beautiful Angel shining down on everyone. On May 12, 2013 I lost my wonderful brother in law,Tudy, to cancer after being diagnosed in October, 2012.He was sweet and kind, just like you and I know he will be there, with GOD, to greet you with open arms. You are and will always be an inspiration to me and others. GOD Bless you Zach.
My heart breaks for all of you
A true inspiration to all. Love and condolences.
A gift from God while on this Earth and surely an angel in heaven. Although I never met this sweet young man, I believe he was sent to inspire us all to be better humans. He is singing in the Heavens .I know his family and friends are missing him terribly. May God grant you peace and the knowledge knowing he has given us a beautiful song that will remain forever.

May peace be with you and comfort you as you stand in awe at the positive impact your son and brother left by sharing his story and song, Clouds.
"God be with you till we meet again,
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you,
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again,
Keep love's banner floating o'er you,
Smite death's threat'ning wave before you,
God be with you till we meet again.
Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again."
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

I heard your Zach's story on my way home from work the other day on the radio. What an amazing young man. My ten year old daughter's new favorite song is Zach's song clouds. You must be very proud of what a heroic young man he was and may it give you comfort in all of the lives that he has touched. God bless you and your family.

Dear Sobiech family and friends,
I never had the pleasure of meeting your truly awesome Zach, but his music has touched my soul. I lost my own teenage daughter to Osteosarcoma in 2002. Our children have touched the lives of more people than we will ever know. A part of Lisa lives on in my heart just as Zach will live on in yours. I pray that God grant each of you that peace which is beyond understanding. I wish I could hug you all. Thanks for sharing Zach with the world.
you are an inspiration to all. you lived life to the fullest. you will be remembered by all those whom you touched their hearts. thoughts and prayers to your family and friends. rest in peace Zach.
My heart and my prayers are with you Sobiech family and friends. To his parents, thank you for giving birth to a wonderful human. The world needs more parents like you that understand and raise young people like this. To his brother and sisters, you will carry a part of your brother with you all the days on this earth. Your love for your brother is so touching and it warms my heart to see such love in a family. I pray comfort for you that only GOD can give. To his friends, always remember how blessed you were by his presence and how blessed he was by yours. You had the honor of knowing him and that is a gift that death cannot take. Sammy - keep singing with your beautiful voice. A part of those we love lives in us and know you will sing together again in Heaven. To his precious girlfriend. You gave him the gift of a glimpse of Heaven. To have someone to share days with that he wanted to marry and have a family with...is priceless and I know he remains in your heart until you meet again. Thank you to all of you for the gift of Zach. Thank you for sharing him with the world. I pray GOD's love and comfort and years of laughter and remembrance in every moment every minute and every second. He is away and you will all be together again in our Heavenly home with a GOD that wipes away all sorrow and all tears where there is only love that never ends.
As you begin the celebration of Zach's life in the Church of St. Michael I wanted you all to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Dear Sobiech Family,
I just heard about and watched Zach. What an incredible young man. God bless your family. I am so very sorry for your loss. He has left an amazing gift to those of us left here on earth. Such insight. You can really feel the love and see the light emanate from him. May God bless and keep you in his arms.
Although I have never met him I will think of him every time I look up, up, up into those beautiful clouds. He and your family have helped so many. With much love and my deepest sympathy. Darlene
Peace be with your amazing family. What a gift from God Zach was. I have sent his video to so many friends to listen to. Love from California to all of you.
We pray for comfort and peace to surround you during this difficult time.
Today is your special homecoming to your loved ones above. Today, the sun came out for you, so you could fly into the clouds & stars. Your journey on earth is done, but your spirit work above has just begun. Gentle spirit that you are, we caught a glimpse of God's love in you from near and far. Thank you dear Zach and your family, for sharing so much of your humanity. Inspired we are to think of you, always knowing that what is true.

God Bless you and your family!
Thank you so much for sharing this amazing story! I cannot give a condolence but a congratulation to the entire family. Zach certainly earned his crown of life and gave hope to millions that may have lost hope. God Bless you all!
"Until you spread your wings, you will have no idea how far you can fly".... Zach truly spread wings over all of his loved one's with the legacy of his beautiful song to remember him by. He may not have known till now how many lives he would touch & inspire. God bless all of you in your grief and thank you for sharing Zach with us.
Most Sincerely, Sue Livingston, Oakdale, MN
I am sitting at my desk, crying for the loss of someone I didn't know until today. What a magnificent young man with such courage to see the inevitable and sing about it. Clouds is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. We are all going there, but how beautiful to know that Zach will be there to greet us.
May God hold you all in the palm of His hands and may He hug you forever.
My biggest regret is not having "met" Zach sooner. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friend. RIP Zach and trust that you will never be forgotten.
You are now singing with the angels. Fly high and watch over your family and friends from the Clouds above.
I am speechless....what an INCREDIBLE and AMAZING person!!!!
I did not know your son but I know he must have been an amazing young man. His goodbye is an inspiration to all. I lost my own son in 2006 in a motorcycle accident with no chance to say the words in Zach's video. May your happy memories sustain you and your hearts be healed as you see the legacy your loved one has left. My prayers are with you all.
Dear Sobiech Family,
I have never meet Zach and before him, I have never been compelled to write a message on a strangers obituary book. I was so inspired by Zach, his story, his resolve to live life every day to the fullest, his commitment to his family & the loved you all shared. I am truly saddened by his passing and the loss you have to suffer. My prayer is that Zach was welcomed into Gods Kingdom and he is surrounded with Gods love, free from pain and suffering. My prayers for you; his family, friends and loved ones left behind is for peace & comfort and may you feel God's loving care protecting you from your grief & sadness. The love you shared is pure & true and will never be denied. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
So sorry for your loss his story was truly inspirational.
May your life and how you lived it serve as an eternal beacon of greatness and determination in coping with adversity
I met you at the hospital as a staff member and recall thinking what an amazing family you were. I got to know you through the Stillwater/ Woodbury community and Zach's music. My heart goes out to you at the loss of your son, your brother, your boyfriend and I grieve for how much was taken from this world too soon, but am thankful to you for sharing Zach with us during his last months, weeks and days. You are in my prayers.
I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Zach's parents and siblings. I did not know your son or brother, but I watched the video/documetary. He clearly is an amazing person, who brought a smile to face and tears to my eyes as I watched. God Bless all of you.

I just found Zach's story! I'm so very sorry to hear of his passing. I wanted to share what his story made me feel like because he loved that he touched people. I'm an RN in a large ICU. Doing this job, I (we) sometimes lose touch. It's coming up on burnout time... Where we need a vacation just to recharge for the job that we do... However, Zach has just given me a big push! Time to regroup and start living for smiles! Make other people happy! I have already distributed his story to co-workers! I'm so sorry for the loss of Zach but it seems that just maybe he was actually a walking angel. God bless you all! Thank you Zach!
So sorry. Hope you can find peace.
To Zachs family, what an amazing person. He nor you will probably ever know me but I want you to know you've changed my life forever. May he fly with the angels. RIP.
A true light in this world and a gift to the human race. Thanks Zack for being a teacher to so many. Peace to the Sobiech family. Fly high sweet angel.
My thoughts and prayers are with Zach's family and friends. I have read so many wonderful things about this amazing young man!! I also love his song "Clouds". I am amazed by his strength and faith. Peace Be With You All!!!

My regards to your family and friends, Zach. May you all find some peace in knowing how influential he has been and how many lives he touched and will continue to touch through his music. My heart goes out to you.
You were a piece of heaven here on earth…Thank you for the way you worked & worked so hard so you could leave us much. Thank you for blessing so many lives with your drive, story, music & goodness. I pray your family's grief will be tolerable & they will be at peace knowing that life goes on & earth was just a little stop off. We will never be the same….Zach-you left us much better than you found us. I am looking forward to one day, giving you a big hug, looking in your eyes & telling your thank you for your goodness in person…in about 50 yrs.
Zach's music, his story, but especially how he lived his life, has been very inspiring to me. It's clear from the video how much love you all got and gave to each other, and how that spilled out into the world. So much love, flowing even now. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that his message of love has reached so many people.
What a beautiful person. What a tremendous gift to his family and friends and how truly privileged I feel to hear his story and his songs. Blessings and comfort to you his family and friends. RIP dear Zach -- from a fan...
What an inspiration to us all. I saw Zach's documentary for the 1st time online the day he passed. It brought tears to my eyes. I am so very honored to have been able to share it on fb with all of my fb friends, so that they too can see what an amazing and inspiration he was. Thank you for sharing. My condolences to the entire Sobiech family and friends.
To Zach's family and friends,

I ran across this story in the last few days and am truly sorry I couldn't have followed this during Zach's life, but what an amazing son, brother, friend and boyfriend!!! I had leukemia as an 18 year old and we people ask how did you get through this, I always answered you deal with what is given to you. However, I have never scene someone do it with the grace, dignity and fight that Zach did. His story has moved me beyond words. I can't express my sorrow enough, but know that you have been touched by one of the truly amazing people in life!!
I followed Zach's (& your family's) story over the past several months on tv & radio. What began as a story about a sweet, young person with a terminal illness quickly became a story of inspiration & even joy. Thank you to Zach for sharing some of his last precious months with all of us. Thank you to Zach's family & loved ones for sharing him with all of us. Zach will live on in his remarkable story & in his beautiful gift of poetry & music.

My heart hurts for your loss, but my heart is happy to know of Zach, his song "Clouds" and to be alive to spread his message. May you find some comfort knowing that a Florida mom will share his song with my friends and pray for the Sobiech family nightly.

To the Sobiech thank you for sharing your precious son with all of us and huge hugs and prayers to you all! God Bless!
Zach when I invited you to come to Brett & Leslie's wedding in December with Amy & her family I never imagined you would feel up to it. When my sister called and said you were coming we were all so excited to finally meet you. I never imagined the amount of energy and fun you would bring with you! This was the first and last time we would meet in this life, but it was a time I will never forget nor will I ever forget you Zach! Through your smile, your love of life and your songs you changed this world! I only wish "we'd had a little more time" & we could be there to say "goodbye"! So until we meet again, RIP Zach!
To Rob, Laura, Allie, Sam & Grace-because of Zach I feel as if I've known your family for ever--that's one of many effects Zach had on me! God Bless you! Love you all!

Though I have never met Zach, his story brought me to tears in several ways. May you all find peace in knowing he is now an angel and will always be with you. He truly is an inspiration for all of us.
I just "met" Zach online today. What an amazing person. His story and his music have touched my heart!
To his family, thank you for sharing him with the world. I know losing a son cannot be expressed in words. I hope it gives you some comfort in knowing that he is making a difference in peoples lives, like mine. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
What an inspiration you are and always will be to people everywhere. I am honored to live in the same state and to have followed your story. God bless all of your family during this difficult time. Heaven is lucky to have Zach and all of his beautiful music!
I loved your song Zach!
Mom -sorry to hear this news, now he can fly within the clouds like a bird! May you see him again someday!
It has been cloudy all week...I hope tomorrow we can all see the sun and know that Zach is looking down on us from the clouds..God Bless Sobiech Family..He will be with us forever now..with his spirit..his words and his songs. And know that through Zach..we are helping so many other children..and this is what it is all about. There is no loss here...Only gain!! Gain in living...Continue living Family...continue.."Living".
Dear Sobiech family,
I learned of your family this evening after a friend posted Zach's documentary on Facebook. Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your amazing son and brother. Your family's story touched me deeply and my heart breaks for your loss. You are all warriors. To see the true light in your eyes when you were around each other, in spite of your situation, is nothing short of inspiring and awesome.
Sending you love, light and peace.
You have touched so many people and you and your message of hope and inspiration will live on forever in our hearts. My sympathy to your loving family and your beloved girlfriend. Soar high, Zach!
Thank you for sharing your journey with the world. May you rest in peace in eternal life. Praying for you and your family and friends.
Zach, It would of been a real honor to meet you and talk to you even just once. I have followed your music and seen the videos. Your family is amazing. The pain and loss for them is so great, and will remain so. You are beyond words, amazing the insight you have and the bravery and courage. The loss of you will be forever felt. May God bless you, your family, your girlfriend. You have touched so many people and changed lives. I didnt get to know you, but you impacted me and many. When we get down over life and the little things, may we look to you and be reminded. I hope we can learn lessons from you and all you believed in. God bless you zach. kathy from PA
Zach, you didn't loose. Rest in the clouds, you're an inspiration.
Up, up, up. An incredible and deliberate life that had so many lessons. May God bless Zach's amazing family and friends always. I'm feeling such a loss for someone I've met only thru YouTube. Crazy. Truly inspiring for a world that is so often filled with such hate. Thank you Zach. You were here for a reason.
I stumbled upon the song Clouds and it brought tears to my eyes, what a beautiful song it is. What a true inspiration this young man is. Even though we never met you have made me think a little different. To the parents you did a truly amazing job on raising your son. My the Angels keep his soul safe. And your family is in my prayers, your family was truly blessed to have Zach in your life.
I met Zach through his music and story of his journey. There are those moments you have where you just have to tell everyone, those moments that inspire, give you courage, make you laugh, make you cry. Zach, your life's message was one of those rare, unique moments. My life will be forever changed because of you and your family and your love for each other.
In a daily reader, I keep an old card which I got when visiting a church in Europe. We had a family tradition of when going somewhere new, we would go into a church and light a candle, be thankful for our safe journey, and pray.
This card reads lighting a candle is an ancient and widespread custom, it is a sign of our prayer for someone and the offering of our lives to God, a reminder to us of those who have shone as lights in the world.
The other side reads, to find the words to pray is difficult; we do not know what to say for the best. Our hearts are too full for words. Our anxieties paralyze us. Light a candle. Let the Holy Spirit of God work in you. Let him lead you in prayer.
Followed by a Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi: O Holy Spirit, make me a channel of your peace. Where there is despair in life, let me bring hope. Where there is darkness, let me bring light. And where there is sadness, joy. O grant that I may never seek so much to be consoled as to console, to be understood, as to understand, to be loved, as to love with all my heart.
I believe this describes Zach Sobiech and his love of life and others.
May you find peace in the hope, light, and joy your son has brought to thousands and thousands of individuals whose lives have been changed because of him.
My sympathy to Zach's family. He was an angel on earth, now an angel in heaven. I hope to meet him some day.
"Clouds" is one of the most beautiful songs Ive ever heard and its a true honor to have it on my ipod. Zach you are a true inspiration and hopefully the view from those clouds is every bit amazing as you sang it to be.
I have never meet you, but you are a real inspiration. You were able to face each day with a smile, you are a role model to me now. I pray that you have no more pain or worries,
You only had a short time here, but you made every minute worth wild.
I have never meet you, but you are a real inspiration. You were able to face each day with a smile, you are a role model to me now. I pray that you have no more pain or worries,
You only had a short time here, but you made every minute worth wild.
Praying for all who loved Zach. My heart aches for you. Zach, your family, and friends have definitely impacted many lives. Many lessons have been learned by Zach and the grace in which he handled his situation.
His song touch me to tears. What a strong young man to use such touching words. Heaven has a glorious Angel.
I saw the mini-documentary about Zach on unworthy.com and was so moved. Not just by his imminent death but by his wonderful family. What spirit, what grace, what humour and what an enormous joy for life everyone showed. I have no doubt Zach knew how loved and valued he was and although, to me, he - and his family and friends - is just a stranger on the internet to me I am so glad this video was put out there. I watched it with my 14 year old son while we held hands, I shed tears and he teased me. And then we had the best hug in the world. I am so sorry for your loss but know that Zach is touching people...and so is your wonderful family.
As a mother of 3 and grandmother of 3 soon to be 4, my heart breaks for you his family. May your faith and love for Zach keep you strong during this difficult time. What a inspiration your son was and still is to all of us.
His inspirational courage in dealing with death was possible because of faith and his family's unity. The impact of his songs and videos is miraculous, perhaps saintly.
What a great and wonderful person Zach was - I've watched his "Clouds" video many time and found myself whistling it at work today. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Zach, it is VERY clear that he loved life, love music and most importantly, loved his family and friends. Truly touched by his story and my thoughts and prayers are with all of his family at this time. Let it be known that even your neighbours to the north have appreciated hearing of Zach's amazing and touching story. God Bless. Patrick Flynn, London Ontario Canada
What a lovely man and what a beautiful song. The world has lost a special person, but his mark on the world will remain. RIP, Zach and my respects to his family and friends.
What an amazing young man! Peace be with you all. I hope one day I will meet Zach in Heaven.
What a wonderful young man. How proud you must be. God bless.
I was so very sorry to here of Your passing. My sister died the same day as you of cancer. So My Heart is a Mess. But wanted to tell You Thank You for being the Beautiful person You were. R.I.P.
My deepest sympathies to Zach's family and friends. Thank you to Zach and to his family for sharing his story. What a remarkable young man who has touched so many by the way he lived his life with such passion, joy and love. His documentary My Last Days was such a moving tribute to his life and his love for his family and friends. Wishing you all comfort and strength at this time.
My life will never be the same after hearing Zach's story. My heart mourns his loss and the fact that I will never know this amazing person. I pray for peace understanding for his family, friends, girlfriend and everyone who knew him. I want to live like Zach, "You don't have to find out you're dying to start living." God bless him and his family.
What a wonderful young man you raised. He was and will be one of Gods angels among us. His dedication to his music, family an girlfriend were amazing. He seemed like he put his family needs above his, even when he was ill. You have been blessed to have a remarkable individual in your lives. He touched me in a way that I have never felt. I will always remember his smiling face. I Know it will be difficult for all of you,but find Peace in knowing Zach is not suffering any longer and he is . with the Lord. You will remain in my prayers. Wishing you strength and peace. God Bless your family. Today there are CLOUDS in the sky....
I never had the pleasure to meet Zach but followed his story like so many others. What a sweet soul, he will live forever in the hearts of his loved ones and friends. His love for his sister Grace was inspiring. You are all in my prayers.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. Your son was an angel sent by the Good Lord above to live among us. Your family is truly blessed. I recently lost one of my brothers. He died suddenly. The song below "Gentle Soul" gave me comfort. I hope it will help you too. The other two songs were sung at his funeral service. They are very beautiful hymns. I hope they will also give you comfort.
"Zoi se mas" This is what the Greeks say to one another when at a funeral or memorial. "Zoi se mas" means May life be granted to us!
Our hearts are with all of you in this time of sorrow.
George, Vicky , Aggie, Kosta, and John Christakis
what a moving video by Zach, So sorry to hear about the passing of Zach. Praying for you and family
Wow! Just watched his YouTube videos and cried! You have an amazing son! He has had an impact on the world. Prayers are with you.
You are an amazing family. Your bravery to let Zach chose how to live his life is inspiring. So much love. You are an inspiration. I'll be thinking of your family.
To Sachs family and friends. A truly inspiring young man. You were blessed to have Zach in your lives and you in his. My families thoughts are with you all at this sad time. God bless. The Gilmore family, Co Antrim
I never had the pleasure to meet Zach but had followed his story. My heart is just breaking for his family and friends. I hope that those who loved him find comfort in knowing how remarkable of a young man he was. May he rest in peace.
Such a brave & sweet soul who shared himself with us all. When we see clouds we will think of you. God bless you, Zach. May the God of all that is good sustain & comfort your family in this difficult time. We'll all meet again soon. Peace....Psalms 121.
Dear Sobiech Family,
Just watched video about Zach's last days here on earth. It was very moving and I wish I could have known him personally, but the video itself was a great introduction to him and you his family. I have no doubt that Zach's soul is in Heaven and he is seeing Jesus face to face. We can be "jealous" of him in a spiritual kind of way, but he is now a member of the Communion of Saints and through the Grace of God is available to intercede for us in prayer.
I'm a transplanted Minnesotan (from Wells) living here in Indianapolis, but my roots are in Minnesota. By the way, I enjoyed the "Minnesota-feel" of the video.
In this time of your sorrow may the Peace and Joy of Jesus be with you.
I watched your video of Zach and I so love your family values. The love between all of you shows and has made you all so much stronger, how could anyone not be touched. Such a strong support system for someone who was going through such a difficult time. I send my deepest sympathy for you all. What a blessing he was to your family and so many others. I loved his thoughts of continuing on as long as he could "normally" such an inspiration for all who are going through any kind of situation. Thank you so much for sharing your video with the world. Now, on to what I do... and would love to do for your family, if you would like. Please check out our website, handyhandsreflections.org. We create and DONATE memory albums for loved ones experiencing the end of life. We would be honored to do an album for your family. Please let me know if you would like an album, they are such a good tool for healing your aching hearts. Bless you all and I am sure you all know, he is still with you. In your lives for a short time but in your hearts forever. We can also do an album for his girlfriend too.... 208-602-2371.
So wise beyond his years. So full of life and love while he was with you. I am glad he shared with us all what his short life was all about. May his parents, siblings and friends continue to reflect his light and love. Such a brave young man, a great example for young and old. May peace and healing come quickly to you.
To a amazing man who will be remembered for his beauty and talent.I love the song clouds.As I look up I will always think of you and your insiration.Never again will I feel frighten for I know there is peace in in the clouds.May God be with your family.They were blessed to have you in their life,now I am blessed to have your song in mind.Prayers and thoughts go out to and yours

Sobeich Family, Zach has left this world but will live forever not only in your hearts but those who were blessed to listen to his song, he has without doubt touched the hearts of millions, Rest in Peace Zach, we will think of you when we see the clouds
To Zachs' family and friends, Thank you so much for sharing this amazing young man and his/your story! As a parent who has lost a child (our daughter,22 yrs old)I can only say your days will be brighter in time and your memories will bring a smile to your face once again! Be proud of the very special person you have created! Warm hugs to you all!
Zach will be missed by family and friends.. Loved his music very much.
An inspiration to all!!!!
So sorry for your loss. Our prayers to you and all your family. May the perpetual light shine upon him. Woke up this morning to Zach's song on the radio here in Arizona. My how nice that was.
I just recently became familiar with Zach's story. I was so impressed with him that I shared his story with my students. His way of living life to the fullest was truly inspiring. Asking God to bless and be with you all.....
So inspired by this young man's life. What a blessing to have had him in your lives. Praying for profound peace for all who loved him.
.My deepest sympathies to the Sobiech family. Zach has left a lasting impression with his wisdom, joy and music. He gave so freely of himself during his illness and showed us all how to live life and to find joy. I never met Zach, but seeing his documentary has indeed made a difference to me and countless others. He has taught us all to see what is really important in living life and seeing the best in others. The world has had to say goodbye to this remarkable young man who has touched more lives than he could ever have known. He will not be forgotton. May God's love comfort you during this difficult time.
I never knew or heard of Zach until just recently, but I know he was an inspiration to many. There are lives that were touched that the family may never know about, so for that I say thank you. I pray that God comforts you in this time of grief as only He can do, and that each of you experience His presence in a way you have never imagined.
Soaring high in the CLOUDS! RIP Zach
God has received another awesome angel and an inspiration to all. Awesome documentary.
I read your story and was inspired by his amazing attitude given his situation. He was talented and creative. Clouds is an amazing song!!I am so sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
A beautiful soul is never forgotten . . .
As long as there is music Zach's memory will live on in the hearts and minds of his family, friends, and the rest of us that weren't fortunate enough to know him.. I'll never look at a cloud the same way again, thank you Zach. Condolences to the Sobiech family and thank you for raising such a fine young man and his loving siblings. God speed Zach. Up,up, up!
We watched the video and were touched beyond words. What a great kid you had--and will have forever in your hearts. God bless your family always, and give you strength. You will see Zach again someday.
RIP sweet child. Praying for strength for the family during these difficult times. May God Bless you all.
Zach left all of us with a part of himself thru his music. You got to celebrate his life before he passed. He expressed & showed his love for all of you. My son died suddenly in his sleep 3 years ago with no "goodbyes." God Bless You. Your son lives on in your hearts. Love is Eternal. xxx
God be with you all and comforts you. May he hold you in His hand.
To Zach's family - you had a gem in Zach. What a fabulous kid. My heart goes out to you people. Zach lived his short life well. I have "clouds" stuck in my head and will be singing it all day.
I had not heard about this. It is a lovely, hope-filled, inspiring song. Zach, in his short life, truly was a moment's sunlight. My heart goes out to this young man's family and friends. Zach, I am sure, is all around you right now. Godspeed.
To Zach's friends & family I send my condolences. I watched the documentary & have read the lyrics to his songs. What an amazing person, to have touched so many people. I lost my son shortly after he was born and Zach's songs have touched the place in my heart where my son lives. I'm so sorry for your loss.
Watched the documentary on him. Unbelievable. No words can describe him. He won. He won in the face of death.
Dear Sobiech family - I am so sorry for your loss and pray that your wonderful memories and moments with Zach, along with the Lord's help, will carry you through these rough times. Zach - I've always wanted to believe that we were put here for a specific purpose - whether it be to learn something, teach someone something or just to touch another person's life with a small gesture at a time when they needed it the most - now I know it is true! What a wonderful life you led Zach and what a beautiful gift you were to your loving family and friends - God bless you and all the people you've loved and lives you've touched and continue inspire! I think you definitely accomplished what God sent you here to do ? Thank you
I just read your story and was touched tremendously to the point I cried watching "My Last Days." To the family be comforted in knowing that Zach will always be here in your heart and watching over you with his beautiful angel wings he gained Monday. I pray for your strength tomorrow as you say farewell.
May the God of all comfort be with you at this time of grief, may all fond memories stay oclose to your hearts. Psalms 46:1
Rest in the fact that, through Jesus, we have a hope that does not disappoint us. Romans 5:5 Zach's life moved so many, including me. He'll likely be in my sermon this Sunday. The Lord is with you. -Pastor Steve Brown (St. Luke Lutheran Church in Columbus, Ohio.)
May God bless the people whose hearts you have touched with your love, wisdom and grace, those who know you best and those whose hearts you have touched with your story and songs. You will have a special place in Heaven!
What an amazing young man! I did not know Zach personally, but just seeing his story touched my life. I also lost my sister to cancer 10 years ago. I have made sure that I live my life to the fulliest every day. Zach died on my Birthday so he has touched my life in a special way. In losing my sister I am grateful for the time we did have and that God gave her to me as my sister. Life is precious. We were never promised alot of time here on earth. Only that our time here would be wonderful. God Bless the Sobiech family. Stay strong and know that Zach is always in your hearts.
To Zach's family and all who knew and loved him, we mourn with you.
Resting in arms of comfort that are stronger than ours. Prayers for Zach's family and girlfriend. Your story touched my heart.
To short of a visit, but I believe you were an angel sent down from up above. God truly gave you as a gift to all who would listen. May he now grace your family with his love and guidance.
I just saw your beautiful son on facebook and I wanted to tell you how sad I am for your lost. Your son was truly an angel on earth and you were so lucky to have him in your world. I know he will always be with you through his wonderful music and in your heart forever.
To the Sobiech family and Zach's friends, my deepest sympathies. I will hold your message and your song in my heart. Thank you for sharing your journey - your bright light will shine on!
Zach, may you rest in peace with our Heavenly Father. Seeing your story has touched me profoundly. You are truly a beautiful person. There are actually no words to describe the light you have brought into the world. God bless your friends and family.
Your story touched my heart so deeply yesterday. What courage and strength you and your family have. You are free. Your family is in my prayers.
May the God of all Comfort be with Zach's family.
What an amazing young man.
He is now "up.up up" and in God's Heaven.
To the Sobiech family, my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Zach is an incredible witness of joy, peace, and love. May his soul be raised to heaven, and my the comfort of Christ's love come upon all of you. Zach is a true inspiration, and he has lifted my soul to realize there is always hope, and more importantly, an abundant amount of joy out there!! My family will pray for you, and have a Mass offered up for Zach.
Very sorry to hear about Zach's passing. I did not know Zach personally but his journey touched my life. I find myself humming the tune to "Clouds" and singing it throughout my house. I even caught my fiancé humming the tune the other day. The Sobiechs and Amy you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Such a huge loss. But what an amazing young man! I am forever changed after watching his video. Inspiring doesn't come close. My prayers are with your family and friends. May Gods love wrap you in his comforting embrace. And know that God is holding Zach in his arms until you can hold him in yours again. With deepest condolences, Charlotte.
Book of Wisdom 4:13 Being made perfect in a short space, he fulfilled a long time,For his soul pleased God therefore he hastened to bring him home.
Such a wonderful soul.
Thank you for sharing Zach's story. He's quite an inspirational young man. I can see he comes from a loving family and in Zach, you could see and feel how much love radiated from him.It was a beautiful thing for Zach to share his strength, his heart, with so many. I believe his story will give strength to so many others. Blessings to all of Zach's family and love back at you.
May the joy, love, hope and peace that Zach shared with all of us come back to surround and comfort your beautiful family. Thank you for sharing him with all of us.
I am not so much saddened that Zach has gone to the "clouds" as I am that I didn't get the chance to personally meet this wonderful young man. You are a wonderful family and I pray that God provides all the comfort in the world to you all!
What a wonderful young man! Rest in Heavenly Peace Sweet one.
There is a true angel among the clouds now...My deepest sympathies
My Deepest Sympathy from Dave Duderstadt. I work with Zach's Great Uncle at 3M Company. I eat breakfast with him every morning. That's how I've learned about Zach.
You are an amazing inspiration. Your smile can be seen in the clouds now. Soar high, Zach.
Rest in Paradise Zach Sobiech.
This world is a better place because of your lessons Zach. Thank you for being such an inspiration to us all. Thank you for your beautiful music. I pray your family and friends "Gods peace" as they learn to live life loving and missing your beautiful spirit and smile. Here's to living lifetime the fullest.
Your song has touch so many people. Zach, you are such an insiration to others. I originally heard of your story on facebook but it will now forever be in my heart. You dont know me but I sat and cried when I heard the news that you had passed. My thoughts and prayers are with your friends and family during this difficult time, although I know the songs you have left behind will help comfort them. I cant wait till the day comes that I will get to join you, meet you, and sing along with you in heaven. May you now be at peace... <3
Thank you for sharing his story. I do not know Zach or his family, but what an inspiration to us all. Bless your family, my thoughts are with you at this time
You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. - Tibetan Proverb
How exceptionally rare it is that someone comes into this world and leaves it after having truly inspired but ONE person. Zach, on the other hand, has exceeded by far this rarity. To Zach's family: I hope you find solace in knowing that your son changed the world in a very significant way, and with a fraction of the time most have. I never knew Zach, but have been profoundly moved by his story for months. Thank you for being such wonderful role models for the rest of us; you are all truly extraordinary people. I send my warmest healing thoughts to everyone impacted by Zach's incredible life and legacy.
My deepest sympathy to the family during this difficult time. 2 Corienthians 1:3,4
My deepest sympathy! What a fine young man.
I looked and learned of zach's story not to long ago. I instantly fell in love with the whole family. He truly inspired me. I was so blessed by Zach. I thank you so very much for much for sharing your life , your love and love for life. My thoughts my prayer and love be with all.....BLESSED
My deepest sympathy to the Zobiech Family. Your son fought hard for his precious gift of life. May the God of Comfort and tender mercies,comfort you with these words,"He will actually swallow up death forever, and will certainly wipe the tears from all faces."
My prayers and sympathy go out to your family. What a true testament of how faith can help change outlooks on life and heal weary spirits. His smile will live on forever. You are a beautiful family with a beautiful son and may his sweet melodies rest upon your hearts and comfort you during this time and the years to come.
To the friends and family of Zach Sobiech, I would like to say that you are truly blessed. Someone once asked my why God calls home all the good people in this world. I didn't realize the answer until now. It is so that we can all have special angels like Zach watching over us.
May his memory be eternal... May God give strength to his family, his friends and loved ones.....
even though i didn't know Zach, but from watching his videos it shows a caring and thoughtful young man who was living his life to the fullest even though he knew his time for closure was coming. Your beautiful music will live on forever!!! May God bless you and your caring family.
Thanks for all you've taught us Zach. May your Spirit live on always through your family and the many who Love you.
Godspeed and Rest in Peace.
Heaven just got a little brighter! So much wisdom in your short life. Im guessing you reached your purpose faster than most. Soar higher!

To Zach's loving family, dearest friends and to Amy, the Love of his life...
I am a total stranger to you, and yet I feel so deeply saddened by your great loss with Zach's passing.
Your son, brother and friend has left very deep footsteps in your lives and in those of others. He touched so many hearts! You have been blessed by God to have had him, just as much as he was blessed with having you all, as his beautiful family and friends.
Zach was very fortunate to enjoy the things that he loved... because he had you all to share it with.
I would like to express my deepest respect to you all for your strength, love and for supporting him like you did.
Zach was as amazing as the loving people around him! You shall all meet again... Keep faith and stay strong. God bless you!
Zach, your new address is Heaven, but you belong to all of us on earth . You have inspired us here with your deep love and strength for your family and those fortunate to have been in your presence during your extraordinary journey of incredible spirit, inner strength , compassion, love, beauty and being able to share your story of your life with the world even in the face of great pain you still persevered and continued to live while we followed you with laughter and tears and learned to complain less and appreciate what we are so lucky to have...health, family and friends. Thank you Zach for teaching us what is truly important and how great life is . You have touched my heart deeply and "you " I will never forget . You are a gift and you unselfishly let us into your life . I am so moved by your beautiful song "Clouds ". Your parents and siblings are so strong and have such great love in their hearts .
Having never met Zach or his family, I hesitated to add a condolence, but felt compelled to. His story touched so many from around the world and I hope it brings you some comfort to know that so many people have shed tears along with you, for the loss of such an incredible young man. He was truly an inspiration and his song Clouds touched my heart in a way I can't put into words. Thank you for sharing your story with us, for sharing Zach with us.
I was invited to be witness to a utube video today, not really knowing what it was. I sat down with my son 18 years old. Together we were blessed to share this moment together and meet your beautiful son, brother, friend and love. Words cannot express our thanks for being allowed into your hearts during a time that, while beautiful, also holds the saddest and most difficult times a family of people can go through.
Zach has touched, not only those who personally knew him, but the world. He sent a message the we pray everyone who hears him takes into their heart and truly remembers and lives...love pure and simply love.
I am a mother who knows the pain of losing a son. I am also a mother who is grateful for the life of her child, although so shortly experienced but forever changed my heart.
We can only hope that love will lift you up right now and love will carry you through. Zach has left such a gift to everyone and we give thanks to you as parents for the boy you raised, to you as siblings for the friend you nurtured, to his friends for the lessons you will carry to all you meet going forward.
A light in the darkness will never be distinguished as long as love endures. The light of light will live on and in Zach's memory we promise to shine love to those we meet.
During this time of grief we will hold you all in our prayers and give thanks to God for the gift He gave all of us in the spirit that was Zach.
Our sincerest sympathies and thanks,
Danielle and Hayden Revering

My deepest sympaythies to the family. I met Zach today through his video.
What a truly amazing young man.
Zach you confirmed every single feeling I've ever felt about what I want my work to do through your love for other people. I want my work to change people's lives, change people from strangers to friends, and make the world a better place. I cried so many tears hearing your story. You were a living, breathing, precious example of what love and happiness truly is. It is something not many people ever really experience in their life. I only hope that your family gets to hear what I have said of you. For I would do anything and give everything that I have to change someone's world the way your changed mine. Thank you Zach.
Parents usually teach their children but Zach taught many lessons about life and love to us parents. I also lost a son to cancer and like Zach way too soon. He is free from the cancer and the memories will never be taken. Rest in peace Zach and peace to his family.
Just watched My Last Days on Youtube with my family. Thanks for sharing and making a difference and living life. Your story has impacted our lives. Prayers for the family to find peace with all the great memories you have of Zach.
See you in the clouds soon zach,,,save me a spot....your song is the greatest
Zach was certainly proof that there are angels amongst us! Prayers to all his family and friends!
You achieved in 18 years that which some will not achieve in a hundred. I watch your YouTube video when I feel sad or overwhelmed and it helps me put this life into perspective. Zach you are an inspiration to me and so many people in the world. Congratulations on finishing your work....and then some:) Your family is so lucky to have you...and you are lucky to have them.....go up, up, up my friend.
You touched my nieces heart. Her school sung your beautiful song clouds.
Thank you for being such an inspiration.
We are truly blessed for knowing Zach, even if just from the internet
Zachary was truly a blessing. To your family as we (people you've never met) could see in videos on the internet. To the world as someone who faced something so big, in such an inspiring manner. Know that Zach will truly live on in the hearts and mind of millions, due to his light and his talent. Thank you so much for sharing Zach with the world. May Zach's soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, by the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Our deepest sympathies to Zach's loving family. You are an amazing young man, Zach! CLOUDS made me think about how short life really is. Rest in peace.
I shared Zach's story on FB today, what an amazing son, brother, friend, cousin, and boyfriend you all had and now you all having an amazing angel to watch over each and everyone of you. Be blessed you with the memories and the love he had and will continue to have for you all. My thoughts are with you.
Bonnie, Billings, Montana
An inspiration in life and ever after...trully an amazing soul! May god bless him and his family
Zach! You are such an amazing young man! You touched so many lives in your lifetime and especially in the short amount of time you and your song became known. I am sorry this has happened. To your family...No words can describe him. You guys all seem like such a nice tight knit family and I am deeply sorry for your loss. His legacy will live on though through the music he was able to write and record. I may have never gotten to meet him or know him or you guys all personally, but I feel the love that all of you share for one another. He truly lived his life to the fullest in the short amount of time he had left and the impact he left in this world will never be forgotten. God bless you all and I hope you can find some peace during this difficult time and know he is always with you. Take care.
I learned about Zach today on Facebook and feel compelled to send my condolences to his family and friends. He was obviously surrounded by much love and support. His grace and courage and spunk is definitely due, in part, to all of the wonderful people who surrounded him. I send you light and love to help carry you through the days ahead.
Such a beautiful song for a beautiful young man. Travel well Zach, pain free and embraced by God
Having watched Zach's documentary, I felt that I was truly blessed to have known him, even just through the video. My deepest condolences to Zach's amazing family. Know that so many people are sending you love at this terribly difficult time. Zach was a person with so much light.
May God bless Zach's family and friends with solace and love as they mourn the loss of this very talented and kind-hearted young man.
His moving and touching tributes through song are beautiful and lasting reminders of the kind of person Zach Soblech was and how much he meant to those he loved and loved him.
For all of us, whether we knew Zach or just listened to his poignant farewell in song, we shall always remember to share our love and affection with those who mean the most to us.
Truly, his music will be his lasting legacy.
Thank you for being such an amazing spirit. You have inspired me and so many other people. You gave people reason to live life to the fullest.
lost my nephew at age 16 of a rare cancer
my thought and prayers are with you. I know that he is meeting Zach and enjoying him as much as your family did.
Thank you for sharing your special story with the world. May your family gather strength, comfort and peace in your memories and love. God Bless.
I was so sorry to hear of Zach's passing - what a wonderful young man.Just watching Zach perform and the relationships he had with his family and friends puts a smile on my face. The love you all shared as a family is truly a beautiful thing to see and now he is flying up among the clouds and you have a guardian angel to watch over you - God bless your family and God speed Zach.
I'm deeply sorry about the passing of Zach. His story is truly an inspiration to live each day to its fullest. He has left us a incredible legacy! I cried watching his journey and wish I'd had the opportunity to meet him. To his parents, brother, sisters and his beautiful Amy my thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
Zach, You were truly made to serve a higher purpose, that's why you had such a beautiful soul here, on earth. My sympathies to your friends & family.
How lucky you were for having Zach in your life even for the short time that that it was. May you find peace in your wonderful memories
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Your story touched my heart!
My thoughts and prayers are with the Sobiech family. I'm so so so sorry for your loss. From a Zach and "Clouds" fan. Lynn
I am so sorry to hear of Zach's passing. He is an inspiration to everyone facing adversity. From watching the youtube documentary, I feel as though I know all of you guys or at least I know the depths of your love for Zach.
My heart is breaking for each of you in this time of loss and there is little I can say to offer comfort that Zach hasn't already offered you through his life and room brightening smile. Know that he loves you all and wants you to savor each moment of life.
Peace Be With your Family God bless You all
I'm so sorry to the family and friends, Zach was so strong
To Zach's family. I share in your grief. My Mother passed away 8 year ago today. My Husband, Father and Sister have also passed. Music is a big part of my home that I share with my three young adult children. We found CLOUDS and it has become our favorite song. Zach had such a genuine love for life and leaving a song to remember him by was such a good way to have a special thought and moment to kindle that feeling of when he was around leaving his message that has become a wonderful perfect sonf to start the day. I will never get to say that to him myself, but Zach's song has made my life better just listening to it and knowing that his life on this earth was not forgotten. Thank you Zach for the happiness I get from your beautiful song that I enjoy very much. You are one of God's people. I hope you will meet Tim, Carol, Arden and Harry and say hi to them for me. Bless us one and all.
Dear Sobiech Family, I've been watching and listening to Zach's music for awhile now. Clouds is such a beautiful message. To his parents, May God send you His Holy Spirit to comfort you. To his siblings, I know what is it to loose a brother. I pray God cradles you in his arms. To his girlfriend, may God guide you in your road ahead. To everyone God Bless you. He allowed Zach to show his love through his music. God gave him that gift for a reason, and this is exactly the reason why. I just can't tell you enough how very sorry I am for you loss. I will be praying for you, but remember Zach is in Heaven and he is whole, happy and without cancer!
Zach was a brave, inspirational young man. Our hearts go out to the Sobiech family. You are with the Lord now Zach.
R.i.p. Rita (Minnesota)
Thany you Zach for the song CLOUDS. It is one of my favorites.. Please say hello to my Mom, Dad, Sister and Husband. You are one of God's chhosen ones. You made a difference in my life and this is just a quick note to let you know just how I feel and I never even met you. Thanks again. Bless your family at the huge loss. Love your song. Heather Donahue
"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways"
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
So sad to hear of Zach's passing. He faced it head on with all the courage he could muster, by sharing his music with those of us left behind. God Bless.
May your light forever Shine Zach.
Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your amazing son. I just watched the CLOUDS video and it touched me so much. May you find comfort knowing that he touched so many people and is now pain free.
Zach's loved ones; how sad I am to hear of Zach's passing. Although I knew nothing of Zach's song writing, or his lovely lovely song "Clouds", or even about his story until I just read his obituary. . . I am so touched by his story, his life, his bravery. May you all find his memory a comfort rather than the grief we all so feel after losing someone we loved.
AMAZING young man, will truly be missed by this world, prayers to his loved ones.
Thank you for touching my family, especially my young grandchildren, with your uplifting music that sings of hope and purpose for each and every life. May your eternal soul rest in the arms of your loving Savior and may your devoted family and friends be consoled in their grief by His Holy Spirit. You were a treasure to so many, Zach, and we'll all remember you tenderly. I never even met you but my heart aches as I grieve your death.
I heard Zach's song for the first time today, it's the most beautiful song i've every heard made me cry and wish i had known this person with such an inspiration sole. Your mom can always be proud of you what a inspiration to young and old alike, RIP....
Heaven received a special angel.
Your precious son and brother touched so MANY people. I am so very sorry for your entire family. Much love and prayers are being sent to you right now.
With deepest sympathy
I just watched zacks video story and what an inspirational young man he was! Wise way beyond his years! Our prayers are with your family during this most difficult time. God bless!
Dear Sobiech family, My heart was broken yesterday when I read of Zach's passing. I love this lovely child. May you find peace in knowing he is no longer in pain and is singing with angels. Thank you for sharing with me. You are in my prayers.
My sincere sympathies go out to the Sobiech family and friends. Words cannot express how very saddened I am for you. During this distressing time, reflect on the God of all comfort and know that through the love and support from his Word and those closest to you, that his mercies are made new each day (Lamentations 3:20-24) Think of how beautiful it will be to hear Zach's voice when you see him again in a peaceful new world! My prayers are with your family.
Zach has turned his tragic short lifetime into a beautiful endless time by sharing his simple wisdom with thousands of people. I wish that some would learn to appreciate, and stop whining about how terrible life is. Zach's words and music take me up, up, up to a better place, and he inspires me to be a better person. Thank you Zach - you were a true gift to the universe. See the clouds, think of Zach's bravery, calm and peace.
Like a lot of people signing this book, I did not have the opportunity to meet this special young man. I just want to convey my condolences, and let the family know I will keep them in my prayers during this difficult time.
I read Zach's story today on FB. Zach will never be forgotten. Our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family.
What an amazing, story, man and song. I recently lost my mom to bone cancer in November 2012 and I would love my dad to hear his song as it might give him comfort. Thank you for such a wonderful gift.
Having just viewed Zach's story on Soul Pancake, this young man was obviously an inspiration to all who knew him. Rest in peace, Zach - you are a real angel.
What an amazing, and inspiring person. So much you left behind your legacy that everyone will remember. This June when I participate in the Relay for life which raises money for Cancer research I'll be thinking of you! We will see you again, Rest peacefully<3
What an Inspiration, RIP.
Thank you for sharing Zach's story it has given me strength, hope and joy. Today my spirit is refreshed from my own problems and health issues. His life was a true blessing. Please be comforted by his memory.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
I only know Zach through this amazing video. What an inspiration he is. I have a 32 year old daughter who has terminal brain cancer and I know this song will be a source of strength during our journey. Thanks ZACH! Prayers to all of his friends and family in this time.
My heart goes out to the family, friends, & amazing girlfriend of this young man. After watching his story, I am incredibly touched by the strength of not only himself, but all of you. You have all touched the hearts of the World. Thank you for sharing his story, strength, & caring with all of us. Love, thoughts, & prayers to all!
God gave you a heart to love, a smile to share, and blessed you with talents that you give hope and comfort to others. You now see God face to face, and He says, "job well done, good and faithful servant."
"If you believe in forever, then life is just a one night stand."

Dear Family & Friends,
My deepest condolences on the passing of your beloved Zach.
He was wise beyong his years -- a definite blessing to this World! The "Last Days" video is a testimony of how to remain focused and live an enriched life. (It gave me a taste of what it is like to be in Zach's presence and feel unconditional love at the same time.) Thank you for that honour!
May your faith embrace your hearts with healing and love. Know that I will continue to keep you in my prayers and thoughts. PLEASE take care and God bless.
Zach -- you have earned a peaceful rest and your legacy will last forever in the hearts of others.
May our good Lord grant you peace and comfort. May he leave you with the happiness of love shared and memories never forgotten. My deepest condolences, From El Paso, TX
To the family of Zach Sobiech, I'm very sorry for your loss. He is the example of a true hero. His story touched my heart and his testimony will live on. God be with you all in this time.
Zach such a brave soul, You gave us a
lesson in Courage, Love, Laughter! Bless YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
BLESS YOUR FAMILY!!
Zach, You have touched many lives. Rest in peace. To the family, take comfort in knowing you have a special guardian angel to watch over you. Condolences. Baltimore MD

I just finished viewing a video on Facebook. Zach was a wonderful young man who was an inspiration to others. What a great family ! Heaven is a little nicer place today since Zach has arrived. May God Bless you and yours in this time of sorrow.
Thoughts and prayers from Kansas for your family
What an inspiring and exceptional young man. Thoughts and Prayers to you from Kansas
What a Celebration of Life, to a family who celebrated Zach's life daily with him. God Bless all of you.
I listened to Zach's song for the first time seconds ago after reading his obit. I never met Zach but his determination was heart felt. I cried listening. God bless you Zach, May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.. All my best to his family.
I have watched all the "My Last Days" videos and I can honestly say that none touched me like Zach's did. All the videos are inspirational and heart-wrenching, but there was something about Zach's that set him apart from the rest. He just seemed so sincere and genuine and had this energy about him that I can't even describe. I was amazed when I found out he was the same age as me. The way he spoke of his girlfriend and family made me want to be a better daughter and sibling, etc. I'm so happy he was able to get his word out and inspire so many other people. So thank you Zach, for actually changing the life of some random University student in Canada. You didn't inspire me through your music, or your story. What inspired me was your message. Your ideal to change the world and to live happily. May you RIP.
REST IN PEACE ZACK. YOU ARE SURELY AND INSPIRATION TO US ALL.
"Those who live in the Lord never see each other for the last time." Allow Jesus to fill the void. John 14:27.
May God wrap His lovely arms around you all, Kay Kraft, Grand Jct, CO

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
While it is such a tragic loss for the Family ,And as much as it hurts , I can only smile as I watch the Video of his song . What a great person he is. You should be proud of the fact that he has touched so many lives . Truly one of Gods angels now and forever.
What a beautiful person. God takes people when their "work" here is done. Such a loss of a young man, but such an accomplishment too.His story and song has touched more people then one could ever imagine. I am thankful to have been exposed to this beautiful story. To his family and friends, my heart hurts for you. R.I.P. Zach

Such a beautiful soul, and brave young man! May he forever rest in God's caring grace and love!
What a beautiful young man, thank you for sharing him and his music. My condolences, prayers go out to his family and friends.
May his family and friends look forward to the time when we will never have to say goodbye again. God will "swallow up death" and the dead will return to life again in the resurrection
May God comfort you at this time. 1 Peter5:6,7
Please accept my Deepest Sympathies
wow i have never seen or heard this video but it instantly brought tears to my eyes.. r.i.p. Zach :(
What an inspiration and such talent. Zach embraced life with such grace and dignity. I for the first time heard his song Clouds I absolutely loved it. I lost both my parents recently and I am having a hard time with this loss. But after hearing Zach's song my heart has felt more at ease. Just a wonderful reminder of how precious life is and that one day thanks to our blessed Lord Jesus Christ we shall have a heavenly home were we will live forever in perfect peace. My prayers go out to Zach's family and friends for healing and comfort. May God bless you all. Every time I see a cloud I know that I will smile and think of the precious young man.
God has called a beautiful angel home. Thank you Zach for the beautiful music..Play on sweet soul..you are free..
God Bless You, a true hero and inspiration.
God Bless You,Sweet Soul.
RIP Zach. Prayers sent to your family and friends. You inspired many in your short time here. Thank you for sharing your story with us. Soar high in the clouds with your angel wings.

Zachary is at peace amongst the beautiful painfree clouds of God's. blessed kingdom. May your family find more peace and LOVE!Love and prayers to you all.
Zach's story is one the most inspiring stories I have ever heard. It changed how I see things and how I want to live. I am so sorry for your loss. I really wish I knew Zach. He will continue to inspire.
I am sorry for your loss. When you lose a loved one the pain, grief and the feeling of helplessness can at times seem unbearable. At such times we can draw comfort from God's word. For now,Zach is peacefully sleeping awaiting to be awaken from sleep (John11:11)( ?He said these things, and after this he said to them: “Laz'a·rus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.?.?. Jesus had spoken, however, about his death.
until that promise has arrived ,fond memories of Zach are yours to keep.
Beautiful soul who shared his heartfelt song with the world. Hope admid heartbreak. Thank you, Zach, for your courage and inspiration. May your memory be for a blessing.
I was touched by the story of Zach, my son also passed away from osteosarcoma at the age of 13. It is not right that we have to bury our children. We need more funds for research for childhood cancer . My heart breaks for your family and I will be praying for all of you
My sincere condolences to the family. May God give you comfort during this time. Psalm 145:18,19
You will live in my memory thru your song forever! Thank you for showing us your beautiful soul.. God speed to you ! And many prayers to your family and friends !
in God's care rest in peace
Your earthly life is ended, and your pain free eternal life has begun. You taught us all lessons about life and sacrifice. God bless you and your family with comfort and peace. Thanks Zach, R.I.P.

The Clouds are today more beautiful because you have joined them with your laughter and your song!
A beautiful, talented spirit gone but not forgotten. You are one of God's angels sharing your beautiful voice to the heaven above. Praying that your family finds peace and love in your memory.
