Zachary Jeremiah, I will carry all of our memories with me forever. The love you showed me day in and day out will never be forgotten. The life we started to build together is something I will always be grateful for. Your smile and infectious blue eyes always lit up the room, from the amount of icecream and chips and sour cream we consumed im really surprised we weren't 1000 pounds! I'll never forget your happy gallops from room to room or how you loved to eat 5 bowls of cereal right before bed (in bed). Thank you for the time we had together, I miss you tremendously and I will see you again some day, rest easy ❤

When I think of you Zachary I will remember the day at the water slide. We had so much fun ! I all most didn't get that weekend off. It was a cool July day. I recall I didn't want to go at first. When I saw how much you wanted to go, I said yes. We would wait for each other at the end of the slide. Then we would race to the top to see who would get their first. We laughed so much. I hope in heaven their is a huge Water Park. I know you would like that. Remember I would say to you and Mike I Love you guys ! When ever I see a water slide I think I think of this day !

To my son Zachary Jeremiah I wish you could have seen what myself and so many others saw in you. I will never forget your beautiful blue eyes and smile. I will always remember the good times you, Michael, and I had at the Franklin house swimming in the pool, having all the birthday parties in the backyard, watching you, your brother Michael, and all of your friends jumping on the trampoline, and playing in the clubhouse. I will never forget watching all your baseball and football games and your wrestling matches. I love seeing your face when you won your medals wrestling in the tournaments. I will never forget our trips to the shore each summer and our annual outing to the Sussex County fair. I will never forget your artistic ability, all your art work, and your kind heart. I loved watching you become close with Bill over the years and developing your close bond with each other. Until we meet again my son take care of yourself and know we all miss and love you 💕💕💔💔
