Jimmy & Deb,
I found this and thought of you..

When You feel Lonely:

When a person you love passes away
Look to the night sky on a clear day.
The star that to you, appears to be bright,
Will be your loved one,
Looking upon you during the night.
The lights of heaven are what shows through
As your loved one watches all that you do.
When you feel lonely for the one that you love,
Look to the Heavens in the night sky above.

Zach was so polite when I seen him. He always looked up to my son-in-law, Jason, like a big brother. I know he truly loved playing with my granddaughters, Ayla & Leah, and they lit up when they seen him. It was such a tragedy to hear that Zach was taken away from those who loved him. May you find peace in the memories you will always hold.
My deepest sympathies to the entire family.

I've known Zach since 6th grade. He was such a great kid, I remember he always picked on me for my height and joked me about it. I had art with him my senior year in drawing class... he sat right next to me at our table with some of our other friends. I know he aspired to be a tattoo artist, it makes so sad to see he couldn't live out that dream. This is the first friend death I've ever experienced, and it hit me hard. Even though we weren't close or anything, he still was a great kid and he will be missed.

I'm deeply sorry for what happened to Zachary. I knew Zach as a neighbor and a childhood friend. Zach was very friendly. Everytime I saw Zach coming home from work or school he would say hi to me. He was a great person and he won't be forgotten. There is no words to say how sorry I am for such a horrible thing happening to such a nice person and such a good family.

I'm sorry,
