My precious grandson. I love you as much today as I did the day you were born.I had thought my life complete with the births of my children but you proved that wrong.My life had just started and continued with your birth and your cousins that followed. I miss you every single minute of every day.Time does not heal--it just goes on in a different way. Thank you my precious child for coming into my life. I LOVE YOU,Nana

Another year has passed and you are still in our thoughts and heart. Things have changed in our lives but I look at your picture and see the same handsome young boy with that smile that will melt a heart.We will always miss you and love you.

I won't light a candle or lay a flower because I don't see you wanting either. Today someone called me condescending and how much I belittle people (these) were physicians. I thought you instantly. How we always thought we were smarter than our teachers. Remember when we scribled crap in American History or how we had to correct our Algebra II teacher? I'm reading this book right now about lessons in life. I think would like it because its real. One lesson is death. You were never meant to stay here forever, though I wish you were here nothing remains constant. But I have so many memories with you that I will remember forever and ever (until I go senile) and like you predicted I will probably be like Elliot on Scrubs. I think too much about philosophy but its who I am. Its who you were. The one thing I will never forget about you is how you never accepted anything, you thought it through and through until you knew you had the correct answer. I don't know whats after life but I do know you were a good person and I was privileged to know you and I know you will be with me always. After all, everything and everyone is only on loan. Thank you for being my friend.

Happy Birthday Zac....I can only imagine your birthday if you were here...quiet but a smile to let us all know what you were feeling and one of those comments that would only come from Zac..love and miss you.

You would have been 23 today. I sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you and wondered what you would be doing today IF you were here and I could hold you and tell you how very much I love you and how very much I miss you--my first GRAND child.Nana.

My first grandchild.I miss him everyday that goes bye.I miss the smile he gave me that said I love you, Nana.I miss him walking into my house and lighting up my life, by JUST being with me.He was so precious and I am truly blessed that he came into my life --although it was way to short. I LOVE YOU MORE THAN LIFE-my Doodle.

I also remember when Zac found out that Santa was not real. It broke my heart how upset he got. I have so many memories. He was just a baby when Neil and I began dating. Ashley and Zac were very close, and I miss him spending the night and going to the beach with us. It was like he was one of our kids. Gone too soon is a very appropriate song for this page...Love and miss you, Zac!

Hope, I didnt know Zachary, but all of the pictures you have tell a story. He had a great life and great mom and he knew he was loved. I am sorry for your loss.

Christmas was Zachary's favorite time of year. I will never forget how upset he was when he found out the truth about Santa, he was so heart broken,he thought he's days of getting GOOD gifts for Christmas were over because mom and dad were buying them, so cute when he realized we had been buying them all along, his heart healed fast after that. These are the memories that get me through!

Zachary was one of the sweetest boys I have ever know. He had the most kind and gentle heart. Anyone who knows his Mom and Grandmother knows why he was the wonderful young man he was. He will forever remain in the hearts of the peoples lives he touched!!!

"Life; too short, too long, too precious" Even though I only knew my dear cousin for a short 8 years, I still think about him everyday. I think about his voice, the last time I saw him. I think about how things would've been like if things happened differently. I love you all <3

I miss Zach alot i knew him from 2nd grade on and i would see him in the halls and know that when he got a little older he would change everyone's life around him and I ws right because yes he left us but he changed all of our lives by making us realize how precious life is

My son Zac,one of the best people I have ever known. He was smart,funny,wise,kind but above all loved.His life deserves to be remembered always.The only thing wrong with his life was that it was too short.I think I miss him more than I love him and I love him more than life
