Zach, Brad, and i were best friends we hung together had the same classes ever since 4rth grade. But then we kinda drifted away so yea! But then in 6th grade and 7th we started hanging back out i hadnt seen them in a while so i was so excited, that day i realized nothing could change our friendship. in 7th grade we didnt really hang out but i was glad that we were still friends, we had so many great times we always laugh together we had fun everything friends do. i had only talked to Brad 7th grade year i had never talked to Zach i didnt think he was mad at me but we werent on teams. So i was just like i will talk to him in 8th grade. so that day i was at church and i had no intinchen of anything like this happening, so Wed. came and at 11:17 i found out that my best friend that i hanged with almost every day 4rth-7th grade died. I cried so hard, it was just too much i have so many questions about it, but nothing no one could answer i was just heart broken.




im sorry tear tear tear tear so many tears!

Laura and John , I cannot begin to tell you how sorry and sad I am. Zach was a wonderful kid and I loved having him on my all-star team that first year. He was such a beautiful boy and you wonderful parents. I do not know what to say other than if you need anything, please contact me. I have recently moved to La Crosse, Wisconsin and wish I could be there for you.

God bless you all.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To Zachary&s Parents and family...
Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this extremely difficult time. Our son, Adam, played baseball with Zach and there was never a time that he didn&t make him laugh. We will remember Zach as a teammate and friend with lots of energy, a good spirit, and someone true to his friends. May the grace of God be with you and all of your family.

Your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. Zach was a very fine young man with his dreams cut too short in this world. He is gone in body only and is now spending his eternal life with our heavenly father. Zach will always be in our memories.

Zachary and Brody were good friends from the beginning of their schooling and athletics and they had many good memories together. Brody has prayed each night for understanding and decided he is ""stepping up"" his game in honor of be the best player possible because Zachary would want it that way. May God give you peace at this most difficult time.

With love,

My thoughts and prayers go out to you as you face this hour of grief. I lost one of my son a little over a year ago and my heart goes out to you. Nothing in life prepares us for the death of a child. Put your faith in God because it&s His plan not ours. May you find peace.

I&m so sorry. Zack will be missed at our house also. If there is anything I can do to help just give me a call. I&ll be there for you.
Adam Lucus left a message on July 27, 2010:
I want to say that Zac was a good friend and I will miss him very much. He was one that I could talk to and he would listen to me and never make fun of me. I know that he is in Heaven, but I will miss him so much this year. I wish you and your family all the comfort and support that there is and remember that when you feel that you can not go on, Jesus is there to carry you. You will never be alone, Zac is now an angel and is still a good friend to me.

May God bless you and help you though this very hard time.

17 years ago I lost my son 4 year old son Justin. Every day I pray that no other mother or father suffer the loss of their child.

God bless you and your family.
