    Zach, my deepest condolences to you and your family. Zach was a great kid, pulled that truck in the bay better than all the other drivers. He always had a smile on his face, and was a true professional in his job. May God wrap you all in his healing arms and comforting spirit. God bless you all!!

  17. Zech was one of my best friends when I was dating Justin Hammel. We all had so many good times together and he even continued to be my friend even when I met my now husband. He accepted my husband and did some funny stuff with him too. I’ll never forget the laughs, cries and more we had together.

  18. I wish I could come from NC to see you one last time. You will be forever missed in my heart. You were so special to me and helped me through the hardest time in my life. I wish I could have visited you like we planned. I love you Johnson and I miss you so much.
