Zachary was a wonderful person. I remember him most as a 2nd.  grader at Sterling Elementary. He was always the most caring boy I have ever met. He was kind to all the others students especially a good friend of his who was handicapped.   Always watching out for him and any other student who was having a bad day. He always made me smile. You will be missed.
