You are in my prayers..
Brennakimi, that is a sad story! I pray for Zacharys immediate family. I pray for his friends, such as you, who are all trying to process this loss.

I don't know Zachary, and I don't even know you, Bren...but I believe that God does know Zachary. I believe that God knew Zachary and all of his family better than they even knew each other.

I will say a prayer directed more personally, and I am sure that you also are in quiet contemplation. May the pain of Zacharys premature death at such a young age be a cause for others to live life with renewed committment, awareness, and zeal. A foundation or a collection for a donation to a cause that Zachary would have loved or supported would be a good idea. May God strengthen you and others as you rally the friends together for a reflection and celebration of Zacharys life.
May God Himself show all of us that this tragedy will not prevent triumph of the human spirit! PB

By the way, Brennakimi...are these articles ones that your friend Zachary wrote? Was he a writer? #1

See, I never got that part of the christian doctrine. What's the point of prayer for the dead? You're either in heaven or you're in hell. It's not like Lucifer is going to catapult you up to heaven after a certain number of prayers.

Maybe foreknowledge becomes retroactive ;)
