Thank you so much everyone. After four months I am OK some days and a mess others. It has without a doubt been the hardest day of my life, and still hard to believe it really happened. This is the last picture of him I will post. It was the best and proudest day of my life (aside from my children and grandchildren being born) and I spent it with him. It was when we attended the 2009 Sugar Bowl in the Superdome in New Orleans to watch Utah beat Alabama. My older son Zane was the starting center for the Utes. It was a very proud brother and father there. And a great five days previous for a dad and his son, newbies from a small desert town in Utah, to explore New Orleans. And spend New Years Eve on Bourbon Street.

I have been told that getting into your old hobbies can help with grief, and I know that is what Zach would want me to do. So in the last week I have reloaded 800 rounds of 9mm, on a single stage. Just wish we could go out to shoot a few together.

Thanks again everyone.

Got his headstone in earlier this month. He is within 20 yards of his grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather and great-great-great-grandfather (an original settler of my town Moab). So he is in good company. Thanks again for your kind words and prayers. Sure miss my buddy...

Sorry for the loss of Zach earlier this year. The stone is a nice tribute. Especially since he can be so close to his family.
