Zach you were a wonderfully kind human. We were in grad school together and I was always happy to see you there. You always helped me understand philosophy and theory things I didn’t get. You never made me feel dumb for not understanding something and I really liked talking about school and cool sound projects with you. Idk if this is weird but you were one of the first older grad students I became friends with and I thought you were so cool, I want to be like you one day when I am your age - following your passions and going after your real dreams. You were passionate, smart, exciting, and a real people person. Really i just keep thinking back to every time I saw you and I can only think good things. I literally only remember having genuine fun around you. You were always funny, warm, and genuinely dark >:) which I totally admired. I am so truly sad to hear this and I just can’t believe this.

My condolences to all of Zach’s family and friends who have lost a loved one much earlier in life than you might have imagined possible. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote “To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children … to leave the world a bit better … to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.”  I hope you find comfort in your fondest memories.

Kendra - we can not find the words to comfort you for the loss of your beautiful son. But you know we love you and are praying for you. I loved working with you and hearing all the funny stories and about all the yummy meals he always prepared for you. Praying that you can celebrate his life and grieve his death that God's nearness to you is very evident. Love you, KellyG & Clay
