  1. Zach was a great kid and very artistic. I will always remember how he loved dinosaurs so much but HATED the color pink. He was always filled with spunk. He had many friends among his classrooms and they always spoke very highly of him. He will surely be missed by many! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Rest in Peace Zach!
