    Thank You so much for posting this. I really appreciate you letting everyone know, about my son’s Memorial Service. It was a perfect way to honor Zach’s memory. It was tailored around a church he liked to attend & people that he cared about. The service started at high noon, 12:00. Zach would get a kick out of that. He appreciated the classic Westerns. Among many other types of movies. Anyone that knew him. Knew how much Zach enjoyed talking about movies.
    Thank You to everyone. That took time out of your busy lives. To share this special time with us. To honor our Son’s Memory. Some were present in Spirit. Due to previous plans. That is completely understandable. Life continues to move along. It stops for no one. Thank you for all the personal texts & messages. That were sent to let me know. Your continuing to pray for us & thinking about us. It means more than you know. Everyone take care & enjoy your lives!
