  2. To Zachary family and friends;
    I’m so sorry for this painful loss. Being a minister, I’m reminded of a promise found in the bible at Isaiah chap 33 verse 24 where we have Almighty Gods promise that the day will come when “no one will be sick.” That promise and many more will be brought by the Kingdom Jesus taught his followers to pray for rules this earth as it does heaven. Under that heavenly government this earth will be a paradise, where humans and animals will be a peace. Other scriptures in the bible foretells the dead being resurrected. So as you reflect on Zach life, remember Almighty Gods promise. I’ll pray for your family.

  3. There are no words to express our deepest sympathy, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
    May God shine his peace and comfort on your family in this difficult time.
