Almost Christmas

As Christmas approaches, we are doing our best to celebrate Zachary's favorite holiday with aching hearts.  The loss of Zachary still hurts so bad, but he is not suffering.  We are suffering from missing him so much.  I've heard countless stories about Zachary's impact since his passing.  Each story is full of spunk, charm & love, just like Zach, and I get goosebumps hearing such stories.  He has inspired so many, and he truly amazed people near & far.  Over Thanksgiving break, we had a small family gathering at the cemetery, and Zach was buried at St. Lawrence Cemetery in Navarino.  The vault was small due to having Zachary cremated, and as dirt filled the hole, we talked about Zach's love of playing & the visits from toads in the sandbox and again, more stories.  Tim has been diligently working on his stories through the form of scholarships, and we are asking for your help with one in particular.  Please click the link below to read another story from Tim about his love for his brother. If you'd like to help, please cast your vote online for the 2016 WyzAnt Scholarship.  Thank you so much and Merry Christmas Zman Fans!
