"Zachary leaves a hole in the family fabric that cannot be mended. Zachary, our sunshine boy, was a much loved child who was always energetic and inquisitive. He was always at his sister's side, trying to do everything she did. We have wonderful memories of Zach to cherish forever," his family said. "We'll miss Zachary and the thumbs-up he shared with his daddy, the snuggles and bedtime kisses he showered on his mama. Zach was his Pappa Jeff's shadow and his best little buddy. Grandma Kathy will miss his angel hugs, kitty kisses and their story times. 'Grandma and Grandpa Great' always marveled at Zach's sweet disposition and happy nature. We will miss Zachary endlessly but know he is safe and whole in Jesus' arms. This tragedy has left a huge hole in the hearts of all who lived him."
