Mom – Day 139
Today while Dal and I were coming home from Canada we received a call on the cell phone from Zach. It was hard to hear him but it didn’t take long to hear that he was hurting. He didn’t say much because he couldn’t speak; he had a hard time telling us that he just lost a friend. Yesterday Zach’s friend was shot and he did not survive. When the 173rd was in Germany, Matt Hennigan celebrated his 20th birthday with Zach and all of their friends. He played lacrosse with Zach and they were supposed to go skiing in Austria when they got back. For some reason, I keep on thinking that his mother, his parents and family missed his last birthday and they will never be able to celebrate another one with him. I don’t know how Zach is going to cope with this.
I love you Zach.
