    Courtney - Heather

    I am so sorry for your loss. Kyle (Heine -my youngest 21) attended the memorial and Kirk (25) lives in Jacksonville. But we remember the boys from First Baptist -Deland and the years they spent together in church at an early age as well as High School together. I was in Mitchell Reddishs' class with you and Courtney. Kyle and I both were really saddened to hear about Zac. My prayers are with you both as well as Jeremy. I wish for the Love of the Lord and peace to surround you all during this time. Sandy

    I can't tell you enough how sorry I am to hear about Zack. I have such fond memories of Zack during our time together at Holy Presence. He was a delight to have in my sunday school class. Alway happy, respectful and loving. I will never forget going to Youth Quake and seeing Zack reach out to the Lord. He was a blessing to me.

    When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

    by David M. Romano

    When tomorrow starts without me,
    and I'm not there to see;
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes,
    all filled with tears for me;
    I wish so much you wouldn't cry,
    the way you did today,
    while thinking of the many things,
    we didn't get to say.
    I know how much you love me,
    as much as I love you,
    and each time that you think of me,
    I know you'll miss me too;
    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    please try to understand,
    that an Angel came and called my name,
    and took me by the hand,
    and said my place was ready,
    in heaven far above,
    and that I'd have to leave behind,
    all those I dearly love.

    But as I turned to walk away,
    a tear fell from my eye,
    for all life, I'd always thought,
    I didn't want to die.
    I had so much to live for,
    so much yet to do,
    it seemed almost impossible,
    that I was leaving you.

    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    the good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    and all the fun we had.

    If I could relive yesterday,
    just even for awhile,
    I'd say goodbye and kiss you
    and maybe see you smile.

    But then I fully realized,
    that this could never be,
    for emptiness and memories,
    would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    my heart was filled with sorrow.

    But when I walked through heaven's gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    from His great golden throne,

    He said, "This is eternity,
    and all I've promised you".
    Today for life on earth is past,
    but here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    but today will always last,
    and since each day's the same day,
    there's no longing for the past.

    But you have been so faithful,
    so trusting and so true.
    Though there were times you did some things,
    you knew you shouldn't do.
    But you have been forgiven
    and now at last you're free.
    So won't you take my hand
    and share my life with me?

    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    don't think we're far apart,
    for every time you think of me,
    I'm right here, in your heart.

    Dear, sweet, beautiful Zachary ... Oh how we miss you and love you still.
