Happy Birthday Z man and merry christmas to all of Zach and Libbys friends and family.

To the family of Mary Arnerich - What a shock, hearing of Mary's suddenly leaving us. We had her here for less than two years but loved and appreciated her help and interests. What a loving and devout lady! She is with her loving God I am sure!

We have lost a wonderful and inspirational friend. She was with us for not quite two years but became a loving friend, and was always helping. It was a shock to hear of her leaving us. Our sympathy to her family.

Dear Patti and John,

Words cannot express the sorrow in our hearts for your loss. Please know that your Riverpark neighbors are here to support you through this difficult time - wishing you warm, healing thoughts.

Zach, it is so hard for me to comprehend the loss of you one year ago, even though it seems an eternity. You would be proud of how your mother is caring for your son. He is her pride and joy, I know through him you live on. Thank you Patti & John

As the season changes once again to Spring I am often thinking of Zach and Libby. The surf riding season never stopped for Zach but for me it is the time I look forward to riding and it always meant Zach would be there. As I think about the upcoming beach season I know I will miss Zach and Libby- I could always count on Z man to ride a ton and to always have my back in and out of the water. Spring is here but you are not, I miss you Z man.

Thank you for sharing your son's life with me. My thoughts and prayers are for your family.
