    Alex, you may not remember me from your days in Whitecourt but I remember you fondly.
    When Denny told me about Zach, my heart broke into pieces for you, MaryAnn and Zack’s sis.
    I always remember how strong of a faith your parents had, even though I only met them once and I hope that they are able to find some solace in their God.
    As a parent, we never know what lies in store for our babies and we do the best we can, each and every day.
    My heart goes out to the three of you and I hope that Zach’s absence will pull you together even closer than before.
    Big hug to all of you. I’m so sorry for Zach and for your hearts.
