    Zach’s smile just made my heart sing. I will miss him in class. He was very independent and helpful. We will miss seeing him speeding down the hallways and how his face would turn red if I mentioned how the pretty girls always held the doors open for him. Fly high Zach. Love Mrs. C

    My Dearest Zach! I was there when you were born and I knew how special you were. I watched you grow into a handsome boy with an amazing smile and the most beautiful brown eyes. You were such a free spirit with an innocent soul. You touched my life in so many ways. Thank you for loving me (I know you did!) and giving me so many laughs during our Saturday lunches as well as other outings. I’ll treasure the memories. Until we meet again– I love you! ♥️
