|Let the memory of Zachary be with us forever|
"Such sweet memories of baby Zach in our Sunday School class...we used to pass him around like a little bundle taking turns holding him during our class....Teri would get the "mommy glider" to sit in!!! We moved away from St. Louis but always stayed close. I used to love coming to stay with The Chrisco's when I came to work often in St. Louis. Such fun seeing how much Zach and Camri had grown and changed. Love him then and always will!! You will be my St. Louis buddy forever!!!"
"I was and always will be proud of you son. I think of every day and am so thankful that we have the knowledge that salvation brings to know that we will be together again someday...."
"Papa Jean and Grandma Lois miss you and look forward to seeing you again some day. Much Love Zach."
"I have lots of found memories that I will treasure of Zach. He was an amazing child, young boy and good man. He was always kind, loving and funny. Mark and Teri you should be very PROUD! From the time he could speak and he would come over to our house, at that time our son Jesse was 10 years old, and he would always, chase him around and call out Mr. Jesse, Mr. Jesse. (so polite and sweet). xoxox"
"I first met zach when he was a sweet and shy 14 year old. He was a good friend of my best friend's little brother and was always with her family.
Fast forward a few years and he became my cousins boyfriend. He quickly was a favorite among my family, becoming especially close with my brother and now husband. He was there for my cousin during the passing of her mother and was always helpful with her son. He earned the nickname "Stepdad" because he was so good with helping take care of her little boy.
Everyone was disappointed when Zach and my cousin broke up. But that didn't stop my brother and husband from staying good friends with him. He would still come over to my parents house when she wasn't around and everyone was always happy to see him. Teasing him that he should get back together with her so we could see him more often!
To our surprise, several years later they would do just that- move in together and even get engaged.
We have so many good memories of Sunday dinners, traveling together, inside jokes, long talks, and celebrations. Too many to recount. He was considered part of the family- long before he and West decided to get married.
Not often do find someone who fits in with everyone in your family- without even trying... and a part of our family will never be replaced.
I have convinced myself this past year that Zach had been traveling for work, because to admit to myself that I won't see him again is too hard. Too hard to recount all the things he missed this year, including the birth of my son.
I miss his caring heart, sarcasm, and him asking me for advice. I know we will meet again one day. Family is forever. I love u Zach.
"Zach, from the moment I met you, you treated me as one of the family. I'll see you in heaven again and hopefully you'll still treat me the same. Miss you Buddy!"
"Hello Zachary, and family,
My fondest memory of you is during gymnastics. You never seemed bored sitting through those long meets at such a young age. I remember how proud of Camri you appeared through your expressions and actions. I knew you loved your little sister dearly.
We all miss you
"Zach, although I did not know you personally, I am friends with your Mother and that automatically unites us. You now have a new job in your new home of heaven and that is to guide and protect all of us, your family in particular, that are still here on planet"
"Always in my heart"
"I'll love you forever, I'll love you for always, As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be!"
Have a suggestion for us?
