Paula, Barry and Family,

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss of Zachary.
I have not seen Zachary in about five years, but I will remember his spirit and kind heart.
Zachary had such a personable and likable way about him.
He loved his family and was loved by them.
Sadly he is gone too soon, but I believe he is at peace now.
You will all be in my continued thoughts and prayers as you mourn this tragic loss of such a sweet young man.
Stay strong and know you are not alone in your grieving.

Much Love

Neal & Virginia Jarvis

You have joined the group of bereaved parents. It is a group that no one wishes to join. Membership changes your life. Someday, you will be able to talk about your son with crying. You will remember the good times and you will be able to laugh again. Now is a new reality.

It has been years since I have seen you!! Unfortunately I get the website
If SL. So sorry to hear you have lost your son. From time to time I think about Barbara and how back in the day we all would laugh and especially you with such a great sense of humor!!! Life can be very unfair and hope you can cherish your memories of your son Zach with a heavy heart Right now I am going thru putting my mom in asst living she will be 96 next month. I ask Godwhy he just doesn't take her so she can rest along with my dad and all her friends who have passed. I say why someone so young and full of life is taken way to soon. I don't know the cause but the fact he is gone from your world and now have just the memories whil my mom suffers daily with dementia??? I know he doesn't feel it is time yet but for your beloved son has gone to rest and be in peace. There is never a guarantee on ones life. I'm sure you were and wonderful mom and did your best band you are blessed to have had him as your son. I never met him but I am quite sure he was a fun living great guy. When I lost my dad 1978 the rabbi told me to remember he lived and forget he died. And he in in my mind daily also
Gone too soon. Life has no guarantees so cherish all you great memories of Zach. Stay well and take good care of yourself and your family. You always made me laugh and what a great person you are
