Zac Amos's Journal

ZACHARY LANCE AMOS ~ MAY 1, 1991 - JULY 25, 2011
Our sweet son went Home to be with the Father this morning around 4 AM. He was at peace and I had the honor of holding him for hours before he drifted to his forever Home. We have been surrounded for the last few days by the best friends and family that anyone could ever imagine. We feel so blessed to have shared the love and friendship of so many over the past two and a half years. We thank you all so much for the prayers, thoughts and just EVERYTHING! We love you!

Written Jul 13, 2011 9:51pmZac and I arrived home Monday night around 9 PM. We slept. Zac said that it was the best sleep he could remember. Tuesday was an amazing day with friends and family by our side the entire time. We've shared lots of love, laughter, and memories with very special people. The comments you all have shared in our guestbook are a beautiful blessing and we appreciate them so much. Everyone has been so kind to bring everything from food to inspiration into our home. I am trying hard to take in every moment and affix every smile into my memory like a cattle brand so that I can recall them when I am having trouble finding my own.Zac seems to be managing his pain very well and finds strength in the people who surround him. Today was a duplicate of yesterday, full of visits and prayers and well wishes. I feel so blessed to have this time with Zac. I understand that something could happen to me at any time and I would actually see our Father again before Zac does. I also know that the probabilities for that happening are not in my favor. I think of how many mothers lose their children in car accidents or other tragedies and am just so thankful that I can set aside things that might otherwise make me take my time with him for granted. God has generously blessed me with the gift of time. Even though I don't know if it is one second, hour, day or month, it is more than what some are given and I am truly grateful.
How Do You Say Goodbye
Written Jul 10, 2011 7:17pmThis morning Dr. Jagasia informed us that Zac's leukemia was not only inoperable but given his current condition, untreatable. Basically, he told us that Zac's struggle is almost over. We know that this is not a decision they can make, but given their expertise, we are preparing for the days ahead. Please don't cry for Zac, he wouldn't want that. He knows what lies in store for him and he is as ready as he can possibly be. He wants to go home (which we will probably do tomorrow or Tuesday morning) and live as much as he can in the coming weeks, so if you see him please smile and be happy for him.
