Please keep us in your prayers

Please keep us in your prayers

Zach just received word that his dad died tonight. He had a massive heart attack. He just turned 63.

We don’t know anything more at this point.

eta: He had a heart attack while planting a tree. He loved landscaping, so, at least he was doing something he loved to do. He was alone, his wife (not Zach’s mom, btw) found him.

    Jennifer & Zach, I’m so sad to hear this and my thoughts are with you. He was too young to go. Were you close to him? Did he live nearby?
    You may or may not remember that my mother-in-law died last year at age 68. Also too young – and so hard for the kids to lose a grandparent.

    Take care,

    Uncle Jim is in my thoughts and my deepest sympathies are with your family. My brother and mom shared the information that they found on your blog and heard from Aunt Joyce. Lots of Love, Mead Z
