Grizz, Karen, Ashley and family,

As I try to type this note, I find myself at a loss for words.  I cannot imagine any words or actions that can help you right now.  All I can say is you have all been a part of our lives for so long...through preschool, boy scouts, riding wheelers, overnights, monster truck rallies...I could go on and on.  Our kids have grown but memories remain the same.  I hope that your memories of Zach, all his crazy antics and heartfelt actions, can give you peace someday.  He is already missed by so many.  Our hearts and prayers go out to you all.  RIP you crazy kid.

To the McLaughlin Family,

Trying to think of the words to say how much Zach impacted my life but everyone’s is probably the toughest thing to do. No matter what kind of situation was going on or how bad of a day someone was having his presence alone lifted the spirits of everyone around. He was a big lovable goofball who I wouldn’t want to spend my childhood with. Grizz, Karen and Ashley, I am so sorry for this terrible loss. I know you guys are going through a tough time but just know that he loved everyone one of you and was loved by so many. Zach I’ll miss you deeply but I know you and sappy are partying it up in heaven. Keep looking down on us and look out for us and steer us in the right direction. RIP Big Red!

There are never the right words to say when someone passes let alone when someone as amazing as Zach passes. He was everyone's friend no matter who you were. He always wanted to make you laugh and put a smile on your face. If you were sad or upset he would make sure you weren't anymore. He is going to leave a huge hole in so many peoples hearts. I'm so so sorry from the bottom of my heart.

We are so sorry to hear this.  My heart goes out to you all.   We remember Zach as a little boy - he and our son Alex (vern) playing at the buckaloons campground.   I know there are no words - just know that I am praying for you.        Judy and Vern

I too would like to express my condolences to family and friends of Zack.  I was one of his Sunday School teachers at Irvine Prebyterian Church.  He did light up the class with his smile and joy for life.  His death is hard for me to wrap myself around, but I am sustained by many happy memories.  May God be with you and comfort you now and in the future.
