I’m so sorry to hear about Zack. Although I haven’t seen him in years, we would hang out all the time when we were younger. He was one of a kind, and he will be missed.

My husband, Ryan, and I met your son over 22 years ago. He was like family to us. No matter how many miles separated us, he was always in our hearts, always came up in conversation and always kept in touch. We are so grateful that we were able to reconnect last summer when he returned to the east coast. We wish your family comfort in the days ahead. Zack, we are devastated that your loving light is gone from this earth so soon, and we will forever miss your kind, gentle nature. Sleep in the stars, brother!
