Sad news about Zach/Bigman4christ

I am so sorry to have to let you all know that Zach passed away this week.  Yesterday was his 32nd birthday.  His wife has asked me to let you all know.  I am hoping to make it to his service this weekend, so I will print out your comments and take them for her.

I know you all share my sadness for Zach, and for his wife, and I know your thoughts and prayers will be appreciated.

AA

    Dear One,

    Having lost my own husband to cancer this past year ... I know that there are simply no words to truly ease your sadness, pain, and loss. From reading his previous posts here, I know he was a young man of strong faith and I that this brought him, and likely you, tremendous comfort. Zach no longer has to suffer and he can now be at peace. 

    Know that you can come here if you wish as there are many who still post. There is also a special surviving caregivers forum.  I am so glad that you will meet AA as she can also provide tremendous support and compassion.

    Peace. ~ Cynthia

    Too young and too soon

    This is so sad to read and he was so so very young. My sympathy and condolances to Zach's wife.  You both fought a long hard battle.

    He is at peace and free from this horrible cancer.

    My prayers go out to you.

    I just read through some of his posts again and his responses are always lovely and positive....tears are streaming down my face.  He is only 7 years older than my eldest child.

    That is such devastating

    That is such devastating news. I feel so bad for his wife. I was widowed at 34 years old so I understand how hard it is at such a young. I always appreciated Zacks strong faith in God. I hope his faith remained strong and comforted him until the end.

    Thank you Wife of Zach

    thank you for taking the time from your sorrow to let us know of Zach's passing, we so appreciate the consideration you have extended us during this difficult time.

    Zach was always of good cheer and hope, we are better for having known him.  I can't imagine how hard it is for you to have to already say goodbye to him at such a young age.

    Please know we feel such sorrow at his passing and extend to you our sincerest condolences, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Lin .. maybe better to remove this and post

    a separate message for Alex because these comments are meant to be passed on to Zach's wife and family ... just a suggestion.

    Peace. ~ Cynthia

    I will cut out the appropriate messages,

    Zach was a valued member of

    Zach was a valued member of our CSN family and he will be greatly missed.  It is not easy to see your spouse suffer and be unable to do much to ease the pain other than to be there for them.  Time and good memories will eventually help ease your sorrow.  Thinking you and wishing for better days ahead for you.

    I know where Zach is now, and he will be well taken care of, as he was here, with his lovely wife. 

    Too young! Too, too young. 

    God Bless!

    My thoughts and prayers are with Zachs family,

    I know Zach is in a much better place where cancer doesn't exist. He was always such a uplifting and positive influence on us here. He will be missed.

    AA … Lin felt badly and I wrote him not to worry also

    He was so kind to inquire about Alex and her son and I knew that his inquiry would get lost here because the focus was on Zach.

    Peace. ~ Cynthia

    Sorry

    So sorry of his passing.  He was such an inspiration on this board.  He is with God in Heaven and is no longer suffering here.  My sympathies to his wife and family.  May God be with you in such a troubling time and may you find comfort in knowing that your loved one is at peace.

    I am so sorry to hear of

    I am so sorry to hear of Zach's passing.   I felt drawn to him from his first post.  He always seemed like such a good guy.  Strong in his faith and strong in his love for his family.  I'm so sorry you had such a short time together.
