We’re so sorry to hear of Zach’s passing. We’ve known the Dillinger families for years as neighbors but never knew Zach as we moved away when he was small. May you all be comforted with good memories. We love you all and God bless you. Tyson and Deloris McClanahan

Ronnie and Family,
We are sorry for your loss and will keep you in our thoughts & prayers. When God conceals His purposes, -- keep living on His promises. The next weeks and months will be some of the hardest in your life. But remember: God is good. God loves you. James 1:17 tells us that: "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights. with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." ... So, when you think of the good times and the good things about Zach, know that these came from God.

Love you buddy... We are here if you ever need anything.
Judy & Jeff Graves
Ronnie & Christy Paul

Zach was one of Dereks best friends. he came over to visit our house several times and They had a good time running around. Derek visited Zach’s house several times also. he was always such a sweet polite boy to me. I told him he was a little bit skinny and he needed to gain some weight! My thoughts and prayers are for you all today as you go through this terrible time of loosing Zack I know your pain.
