Remembered by Mommy, Daddy & Grandma:
7/2/06 - Oh my precious Zach...your 1st birthday would have been 2 weeks ago, and you will have been gone a whole year on Saturday. Life has been so hard without you baby. Every day is a struggle to make it through. We all miss you so much. We are all still in shock that you came and went so fast. We got the results of your tests 11 days after you passed. It confirmed that you died from Spinal Muscular Atrophy. I can't believe it. We were so excited to have you, and before we knew it, you were gone. Mommy's Angel. I am so glad that we had 18 days with you. I have so many pictures and CommunityPedsCare made a teddy bear out of your blankets that your nurses bought you in the NICU. We bought you a beautiful headstone with the money that was donated to us in your name. I planted you flowers and always put things to keep you company out there. I wish you were still here, but I am so thankful that you are no longer in pain. It hurt us all to watch you suffer, and even more to watch you leave this world. I felt the life go out of you when you died, and I will tell you I KNOW that you saw the Angels gathered above your head when we were praying and giving you back to the Lord. I know this because you were paralyzed when you were born, but at the moment, you smiled the biggest smile. That was a miracle in itself. I never knew peace until that very moment. I love you my son. I am so glad that we have so many precious memories of you. I can't tell you how our lives are so different without you here. I LOVE YOU MY ZACHY. Love, Mommy, Daddy & Grandma
