Peggy you are all in my prayers. I love you all and I admire you for staying by Zacks side for the last year or so while he was in and out of hospital and I am so glad you both got to spend his last days at home surrounded by family. Please let me know if I can do anything for you.

We were sorry to learn of Zackie''s death. I haven''t seen him much in a number of years; however, he and I are the same age and were in elementary school together at Sunshine. Whenever I would see him in the past few years, seems like there was always a little smile on his face.

Please know that you and your family are in our prayers at this time. I know he will be missed greatly by you and your family.

Our love,
Brad and Mary (cousin)
