    Zachary was not only my best friend but was like a brother to me. He helped me with so many problems I’ve had. I miss him more and more everyday. I can always picture him smiling at me. He would always give me a hug whenever I needed one. He was a great person. He loved and cared for everyone. He will always be in my heart.
