It will be very heartbreaking to attend the service for Zach when he has always been the one to provide the service and comfort for everyone else.
Through the years we have shared a lot of laughter and tears. Even though we were not always around each other, I could always depend on him when I needed his services or advice on something and I will truly miss that.
My heart breaks for Vickie, his family and everyone that loved him. He was a good man and will be missed by so many in this neighborhood.
May he forever rest in peace and may the family find comfort in the memories they have with this Legend.
Prayers are with you all.
