Zachary and Connor went to be with their Lord and Savior on June 23, 2015 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. They are sheltered in the loving arms of Jesus. Zachary Raymond was born on February 17, 1997 and Connor Phillip was born on February 22, 2001 in Fargo. They were raised in Moorhead and began their schooling at Park Christian School at an early age at Bethel Church in Fargo. Zach was just starting his senior year and Connor was starting 8th grade at Park Christian in Moorhead. They both loved their family, friends and school - academics and athletics, and serving Jesus Christ. They were blessings to everyone, especially their parents, and perfect, perfect, perfect children. Ray and Kathie lived a full life because of them. Our hearts are shattered, yet we know they are with our loving Father, yet we still grieve.

  3. Dear Kathie & Ray,
    Words cannot convey the depth of my grief in hearing of the boys’ accident.

    I was blessed & humbled to be one of Zachary & Connor’s first teachers. I loved both of them. Heaven will be richer now as you await your reunion with them some day. In the meantime, I pray God will sustain you & give you healing. May He give you strength & courage to meet the challenges that lie ahead.

    I know how much both Zach & Connor loved the Lord. There is no doubt they are in their Savior’s loving arms. You are constantly in my prayers.
    In Christ,
    Cheryl Burroughs

  4. Our hearts & prayers are with you as you grieve this devastating loss. I & your former neighbors on Lilac have been praying for all of your family and friends for God’s comfort, strength, and strong arms to wrap you in His arms. <

  5. I remember you like a photograph, I can see your smile, I can hear your laugh.
    No I don’t have to look back , I remember you.
    And I know someday only God knows when, I will touch your face and I can breath again
    but live goes on so until then, I’ll remember you

    We will never understand why, but must trust that God is in control

  6. Kathie – I know you do not remember me. We worked together years ago at AAA North Dakota.
    My heart aches for what you and your husband are going through. Although I did not know your sons, I know they are in heaven, and at the very least please try and take comfort in that. From everything I have heard and read, you and your husband did your jobs as parents, and that is, to raise your children so they will go to Heaven.
    May God’s eternal light shine on your boys and may the promise and covenant He made to man wrap it’s arms of comfort around you and your husband. You are in my prayers. I am so very sorry.

  7. “Dearest Mommy and Daddy”
    Author unknown

    When you wonder the meaning of life and love
    Know that I am with you
    Close your eyes and feel me kissing you in the gentle breeze across your cheek
    When you begin to doubt that you shall never see me again
    Quiet your mind and hear me
    I am in the whisper of the heavens
    Speaking of your love.
    When you lose your identity
    when you question who you are, where you are going;
    Open your heart and see me.
    I am the twinkle in the stars, smiling down upon you.
    Lighting the path for your journey.
    When you awaken each morning, not remembering your dreams,but feeling content and serene,
    Know that I was with you, filling your night with thoughts of me.
    When you linger in the remnant pain, wholeness seeming so unfamiliar, think of me.
    Know that I am with you, touching you through the shared tears of a gentle friend easing the pain.
    As the sunrise illuminates the desert sky; as that breathtaking brilliance awakens your spirit, think of our time together-all to brief but ever brilliant.
    When you were certain of us together, when you were certain of your destiny, know that God created that moment in time just for us.
    I am with you always……

  8. Words can never express how many of us feel for you. May God richly bless your lives until you will be united with your precious sons.

  9. To the Family/church/school/friends of Zach & Connor.
    My Heart aches for you.
    May God Bless/BE WITH YOU ALL in your time of sorrow.

  10. There are not enough words to describe how we feel for your loss. ..but be assured that your families are in our prayers….Ron&Gaylene..

  11. Sympathies and regrets that we can’t be there for the funeral. We are in Alaska visiting Diana’s folks. Dean & Elvina send sympathies as well. May memories help heal in time. God’s blessings

  12. I am so sorry for your loss! I know how it feels someone who means the world to you! Your sons are with the Good Lord now and he will take good care of them!
    I know the hurt stays for a long time, but then I think of all the good times we had and realize that my Husband is watching over me everyday as will your sons do for you!
    Always keep the memories of your sons in your mind and your heart, they will alwaya feel your love as well as you feel their love!

  13. Ray and Kathie, We have been in prayer for your family this past week and will continue to be. May God and His strength be with you at this time.

    Trevor and Joanne

  14. I do not personally know this family, but I have watched your boys play basketball. What a joy to watch them. My oldest son is the head basketball coach at Breckenridge, the schools compete. My youngest son will be a Sr. in Detroit Lakes and has played with Fargo Moorhead kids in summer league.. so indirectly our paths have crossed. I want you to know that everyone in the basketball world and Christian life is praying for you and your loved ones. Let God carry you during this time as I don’t know how anyone could experience this without a strong faith. Let your tears flow, I know as a parent your boys appreciated everything you gave for them as parents. Sincerely, A friend from the game of Basketball
