But we still miss you, love you and wish you were here to share in everything with us. Some of your friends have married, some have children and sadly some have passed on also. But like your family, many of them miss you and love you too. Love mom dad & Josh

A letter to my son Zach Seven long years have gone by since you left us. We miss you as much today as we did that fateful day.
We still see many of your friends and they all miss you as much as we do. Some are now married and some now have children. All of them have continued to live their life.
We cannot help but wonder what path your life would have taken. What you would be doing? where you would be living? Would you be single or married with children? Would you be off playing hockey, baseball? Sadly we will never know. You had such charm and magnetism and were loved by so many.
It is so sad that you died so young and left us without a chance to hold you or to hug you one last time.
But then through our tears and sadness we know that your death was not by your choice, your decision or of your choosing.
It was Tim Colletto's decisions and his choices that caused your death. It is Tim Colletto that took you from us and your life from you. It is Tim Colletto your friend that has now forgotten you and forgotten what he has done to this family.
Zach do you remember two years prior when Tim was arrested and accused of making a bomb threat to the high school. You came to us and said Tim is your friend and asked if we could please write a note on Tim's behalf stating to the court that he is a good person. That even though he was accused of making a bomb threat the courts should go easy on him.
If I knew two years later he would be responsible for your death my letter to the court would have not been supportive of him. But I trusted you Zach and I loved you. I went along with your wishes and wrote a letter on Tim's behalf to help get him out of the trouble or a reduced sentence. Then two years later Zach your friend that you trusted killed you.
Some friend he turned out to be. Tim has done nothing to-date to keep your memory alive? nothing.
What did Tim do the night you died? He lied to the police and told them he did not have a passenger in his car that he was alone, and didn't know who that was dead person was on the highway. Not once did he lie to the police that night, not twice but three times he told the police he did not have a passenger.
Sadly Zach your friend Tim will never ever know the hell he has put your family through and he will never know the depth of the sadness and pain that he has caused us.
I cannot get the picture of you out of my head from the emergency room. I will never forget being escorted to the family room at the hospital and all of the doctors and nurses looking at us as if no one wanted to be the one to tell us you were dead.
There are many images and facts that haunt all us to this day and one of the worst facts is how your friend Tim has acted and what little he has done in the last seven years.
Zach they say hind sight is 20/20 and I can tell you for certain that based on Tim Colletto's actions and attitude these past seven years that he was never truly your friend. A true friend does not walk away from a friend like he walked away from his responsibilities in your death and your memory.
You do still have great friends that still go to the crash site and to the cemetery and occasionally stop in to make sure that we are ok and to just say hi.
Zach we all love you and miss you so very much. Every time we here a car door close we hope and pray it is you coming home. But we know that sadly it will never be. Love, Dad
