I met Zach when we were in 6th grade. He was always so funny and smart and a really great friend. there is not a day that goes by that i don't wish i could see him one last time and talk to him and share one last good memeory with him. Mr. and Mrs. Williamson, you guys were really blessed to have a son like Zach. When I arrived at school that monday and i was told the news about Zach i broke down and cried. I had hoped it wasn't true. i cried for two weeks and kept saying it wasn't true this can't be happening. I miss Zach so much. He will never ever be forgotten. I still cry to this day about it. I miss him so much. I know its hard to deal with your loss but you will get through it, i know it. Just be strong, it'll be okay. I pray for you guys all the time. it will be ok. I love you guys.

Mr. and Mrs. Williamson,

I went to elementary school and middle school with Zach. He made everyones day just being there and keeping our heads up high. The day i read on facebook that he died, I didn't think that it was true until I went to the viewing. Just seeing his face in the casket was amazing because the wonderful and amazing life he had. Any y'all are truely blessed to have him as a kid. I try not to let his death get to me because I know that Zach is in a better place. The night of the viewing I ws sitting in bed thinking about changing my name cause I would break down if someone called my name. But he told me to keep my name and keep it in pride. So i kept my name. And I was truely touched to be with Zach. And i am very sorry for y'alls loss. From a friend to friend's parents, I love you.

Mark and Rene, I cannot tell you how much my heart aches for you. Zach was a good young man. All I can say is God must have needed him for some special reason. This is one of those times when I think I should have stayed in Georgia. You guys are part of my family and I so want to be with you and your family at this time in your life. Moe and Bonnie.

Mark and Rene', my heart goes out to you. Zach was a fine boy whom mirrored his parents. I don,t know why this happened but you can be sure God has a plan for both of you during and after this tragic time. Rene', I still have the special note you gave me after Robin passed. Mark, only another father with that special bond with a gifted and talented son knows your emptiness right now. Be strong and be proud for Zach. God loves you both and so do I!
