2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
I love you my friend and am so very sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I believe Zachary touched the lives of everyone he met. He showed real courage in the way he faced his challenges, and he was an inspiration to us all. His enthusiasm for athletic competition and his love of the outdoors led to many wonderful memories at family picnics. I will always remember Zachary, his smile, and his persevering spirit.
