  1. My Thoughts are with you. Sending my love and deepest sympathy to Christine and the family. Zak was a beautiful person and will be missed by so many.

  2. I met Zak one year ago. I was in a rough place in life. My boyfriend had just broken up with me and I was more then lost at the time. Zak was friends with a group of people that I had just met. He made such an effort to talk me through my hard time. I saw Zak at least four days a week at our gym. He inspired me to reach my goals and he always brightened the day. Zak could always make me laugh and he will be greatly missed and always remembered. Rest in peace…save me a spot on yhe eliptical next to you on cloud nine.

  3. Zak, I went to elementary school with you, we didn’t talk much at all during high school. But this past month, when I saw you out at the bars , you always put a smile on my face. With your joke ‘what’s on your shirt the flicked my nose. You were such a sweet heart. Last time I will ever see you is at the bar . With a smile on your face. R.I.P Zak, make sure you and Rambo are looking down! Having a beer!

  4. Chris so very sorry for your loss. Devastating to say the least. God Bless you and your family.

  5. Definitely not goodbye, but see you soon buddy πŸ™‚ I love you so much and will never forget you. You better save them dancing moves and silly jokes for when I get there! Love you

  6. Zak we spent so much time together growing up.. I hold so many special memories of you, Zaryn, Zan, Josh and myself… No one can ever take them away or replace them.. I will carry you with me everywhere I am and go and know you will always be in my heart and a part of who I am. You knew the greatest gift that this life had to offer and you embraced it whole heartedly… You knew that the most important aspect of life wasn’t anything money could buy but the love and closeness of family and friends is what made us the richest people in this life.. So many of us love you and your kind heart touched so many people in this world that it will never be the same without you by our sides.. Rest in heaven Zak and know this is not a goodbye, it’s more of a We’ll see you when we get there and I know you will be waiting at heaven’s gates waiting to welcome us home with arms wide open.

You lit up the darkness with the spark in your eyes, with the biggest smile and that no one can deny. Your passing has touched much more than a few, you were loved by so many and that much is true. We need to understand and we need to know why…why you took your precious life with out even a good-bye…with a hole in our hearts and two in our souls we will never forget you and your legacy will be told….
