Our response to Ninos posted in the guestbook July 7th 2010
Ninos, Thank you for the kind words regarding Zach. Also thank you for the blessing.
That said there is no verbal assault against Tim Colletto on this web site. There are only facts. Tim Colletto is responsible for the death of our son this is the truth and fact not a verbal assault.
Tim Colletto and his family promised they would do everything in their power to keep Zach's memory alive. You state he is a wonderful person but what has Tim Colletto done in Zach’s memory or to keep Zach’s memory alive for the last 9 years?
We have not depicted Tim Colletto as being a monster we have only stated the truth of what he did and what he said. I know Tim Colletto did not intend to kill my son that night but the fact is Tim Colletto did kill my son and then he lied to the police that night and to the courts about many things while on probation and during the trial.
In many other states Tim Colletto would be serving 15 to 20 years in prison but in the state of Massachusetts Tim Colletto only served one year in jail.Zach didn’t have that option, Zach got the death sentence and so did we.
Ninos have you buried a child? If you did I am deeply sorry for your loss, if you haven't you have no idea the pain we live with every day.Tim Colletto does not live with this pain he did not loose a son, brother, grandson, cousin or friend he killed one.
It has been 9 years and I can tell you that you cannot hug a memory, we cry almost every day trying to.Does Tim Colletto cry everyday for what he did to Zach and what he has done to our family?Intentionally or unintentionally the results are the same he killed Zach and destroyed our family.He broke our spirit and destroyed our faith.Tim Colletto may not want to be responsible but he is responsible.
Every time a donation is made in Zach’s memory at AttleboroHigh School we receive a notice and a thank you is sent out by them for the donation.In the past nine years I do not know of any donations that were made in Zach’s name by Tim Colletto through the Attleboro Scholarship Fund.
How often has Tim Colletto visited Zach’s grave or the crash site?Has he ever?Does he even care?
So please tell me again how wonderful Tim Colletto is and what wonderful things he and his family have done to keep Zach’s memory alive.
Your post on the guestbook is in my opinion another selfish attempt for Tim Colletto to distance himself from the accountability and responsibility of his actions.
That said I have no intention of changing or removing anything on this site at anytime.
I do not believe Tim Colletto will ever do anything wonderful in Zach’s memory.Action are supposed to speak louder than words but we have seen no action.
All Tim Colletto appears to want to do is distance himself from his past.I wish we could do the same but it is not possible for us we have no choice.
Blessed are the merciful?You speak of being merciful.Let me give you another fact.We could have filed a multimillion dollar wrongful death loss suit against Tim Colletto and we would have easily won it.But we didn’t because we were merciful and we believed that Tim Colletto would as he said do everything in his power to keep Zach’s memory alive.So the next time you are speaking to your best friend Tim Colletto remind him of this fact and that he should be thankful we made that decision.
Also remind Tim Colletto that we wrote a note to the courts on his behalf at the request of Zach when he was arrested in high school for calling a bomb threat into the school.Then in return he killed our son.There are a few other things Tim Colletto was in trouble for but we will leave it at this for now.
So tell me Ninos why we should be merciful today when we already have been?Tell me again how wonderful Tim Colletto is?Actions do speak louder than words and our actions were twice to be merciful because we believed Tim Colletto would in the end do the right thing but he has not.
So the next time Tim Colletto asks for mercy it will have to be between him and his god, because we have no left to offer him.He has taken us for fools twice and we will not betaken three times.
I am glad you can call Tim Colletto one of your best friends but you might want to think twice before letting him drive you or someone you love home.
Dale, Brenda & Josh Seidlitz

I am Zachary’s mother
First, HOW DARE YOU EVEN COME ON THIS SITE AND DO THIS TO US!
How dare you say it is sadder for what we are saying about Tim, which is the truth by the way, over the death of are son.It is obvious you have not lost a child or anyone extremely close to you.You must not have been a friend of Tim’s going back the last 25 years.He has quite the criminal record, part of which my husband wrote a letter to the courts about what a nice kid Tim was when he got in some very big trouble while in high school, and that came back to bit us in the ass, especially after we found out all the very bad things he had done in his youth and after Zachary’s death.(I am not saying Zachary was an angel)There are a lot of people that have seen all the rules Tim broke while on probation before and after his jail stay and not one, including me that has seen him do ONE GOOD THING!
This site was set-up for those of us who love and care about Zachary and for those who never met him but want to get to know him.It was not created for people to bash or “verbally assault” us, which is what you are doing to us.All that is states about Tim is fact, read the court documents.To make matter worse you choose to verbally assault us just days before the ninth anniversary of Zachary’s tragic death!Something I am sureyou did intentionally.You are a cold and callus person just like Tim.You have added more salt to open wounds which will NEVER be healed.This is an extremely dark day for us and we will never see it as anything else.No one who has ever lost a child would disagree with us.You can not begin to understand the pain Tim has caused and now the pain you are creating; you are an evil person with no heart or soul.
Let me ask you some questions:
ØDid you know that Tim boosted about how he was going to and I quote, “get off and beat this wrap?”
ØDid he tell you all the times he broke the pre trail probation rules set up for him?How about all the rules he broke after his release from jail? (We have plenty of times and witness), to bad the courts were so busy or his ass would have been back in jail while awaiting trial and to finish off the balance of his sentence.
ØDid you know that the state trooper that was on the seen told us he was not arresting Tim because it would be an inconvenience to his parents to bail him out?What a slap in the face to us and Zachary.
ØDid he tell you the night of Zachary’s death he denied knowing the person lying dead on the highway not just once, but THREE times? (It’s in the police report).They only figured out who it was after they took Tim away and found Zachary’s wallet in Tim’s car.Try and think about how you would feel, as a parent, to get “THAT CALL” in the middle of the night!All the events from that time going forward will forever be etched in my mind, from the call to seeing him lying on the table with the neck brace on and tubes in his mouth with one eye open banged and bruised to seeing him lying in the casket to all the court visits and all the things we were finding out Time was doing and now you.You are as irresponsible as Tim.
ØDo you know where the alcohol came from?Did you supply it?Tim never said where it came from; I guess he really wasn’t much of a friend to Zachary then, ah? Protect the living the hell with the dead, is that your thinking?
ØDo you know what Tim’s probation was when he was released from jail?
Here is a quick overview:
ØFive years NO DRINKING or DRUGS
Ø500 hours of community service, 250 volunteering in a trauma unit and 250 speaking to area high schoolers about the consequences of drinking and driving.Instead of that he picked up trash for 500 hours, some punishment.(His parents paid for a ONE TIME assembly at AHS put on by MADD in 2002.I know because the school wanted my in put before it could be shown.His parents had the nerve to want to say nothing about Zachary and make it all about poor Tim).Give me a break!
ØNO DRIVING for ten years.He tried at least once, that we know of, to get his license back ( he probably has it now and he should have waited the ten years, out of respect for his friend)We called him out and sent his website pictures to RMV, his probation officer, the courts and the media.After the six o’clock news that night Tim’s website as we knew it disappeared, not something a good and wonderful person would do, don’t you think?He should of had his probation revoked and been sent back to jail to finish out his term, he is one lucky person, unlike the friend he killed.
***Do you see any where in there where he is order to pay some restitution to us for funeral expenses, a headstone or foot stone?You do not because the judge thought Tim would do the right thing.The person you call wonderful and caring sure has not shown it to us or Zachary.
ØDid you know at his sentencing when asked if he had anything to says to us he quietly said ,”NO”, and was handcuffed and lead out surrounded by court officers?Does that sound like someone with remorse?
ØDid you know how many people were in the court room and how many sent letters they wanted read at the sentencing?I gave a sample to the Colletto Family, maybe you should read them sometime, or watch the video we gave them, or Google Zachary’s name and read some of the, “In Memory of’s,” that have been posted over the years in Zachary’s memory, maybe then you will see the pain that Tim had caused and continues to cause, and now you, you are no better than him.
ØDid you know that while in court as his mother sat there crying his father did nothing?I was the one who walked over with a box of tissue to comfort her.I knew after that why Tim was an uncaring person and continues to be just that, UNCARING.
ØWhy do you feel it is okay to bless people who want to persecute us?What have we done to be persecuted?We have done nothing but tell the truth, something that Tim has never done, in all the time we have known him.
Everything on Zachary’s website is the truth.You claim in your last post that Tim is doing good things for others, but you fail to mention even one, why is that?What good has he done for Zachary?Nothing any of us can see.We have plenty of people that would beg to differ with you about Tim.Tim did nothing much to help others before Zachary’s death and I have seen nothing since he killed Zachary.You talk about what his family has done forthe hockey booster club scholarship, but what is it that Tim has done in Zachary’s memory. He needs to stand on his own two feet and take ownership for whathe has doneto Zachary and to all of us.By the way we too donate to the hockey booster club and not just to the scholarship.
We are forever broken.Something you seem to have missed when going through Zachary’s website, did you even go thought it or did you stop after the first page and go right to bashing people you know nothing about.You can not begin to grasp what Tim has done to us or that what he has done was and continues to be wrong!
Please do the entire Seidlitz Family and friends a really big favor and STAY OFF THIS WEBSITE, it’s for people who love and care for Zachary.It is not for those trying to win points for Tim, he had his chance, and HE DID NOTHING!I, like many others could care less about Tim and his being this alleged wonderful, good person, mainly because he could care less about Zachary and KILLING HIM!!!
