Zach was not killed accidentely, there were no flaggers at the scene to warn him. Zach would never disobey a flagger, he was a racer and knew the rules of the track. This was a death that could have been prevented if the track had flaggers on scene.

Zachary michael Wachs was my bestfriend and thanks to the unsupervised track he will no longer be with us! So before anyone should go and make assumptions about how an 18 year old boy "didnt listen" maybe they should know the truth!!.. It's really pathetic how people just can't man up and admit there mistakes instead of pointing fingers!!!

WE LOVE YOU ZACH!!

Why? I ask myself that question every night, but I never find the answer. Why is my life like this? Why did I have to go though this pain without you? I think about you every night! People say ‘ohhh well I’ve gone through worst’ but their wrong. I’ve gone though worst pain than anybody I have ever know.! I’ve gone though everything. Seeing you at the hospital like that almost killed me! I wanted to help but all I could to is sit by your side and hold your hand and tell you everything was going to be all right but it wasn’t. Those last moments with you felt like forever. I wanted you to get better and be able to ride your bike or go on walks with me but you couldn’t. I sat there each and every moment watching your bones break, everything shut down and than your heart gave out. I sat there holding your cold hand, crying, begging you to come back but you couldn’t! Why did you do that to me? I was young! I couldn’t handle it. I blame myself for your death. I went to all your races except your last one. I feel like if I was there you wouldn’t have died. I go to school and all I want to do is cry. I spent days, weeks, even months crying myself to sleep knowing when I go next door or walk down the street or even go to races and see your number on someone’s jersey that your not there to help me with my problems or to hug me when I needed one! We were best friends! We did everything together, but now you’re gone and I can’t do anything about it. I still think about you. I remember your blue eyes, beautiful brown hair and wish I am with you. You said you will wait for me when I get there, so you better be there in time or we will have a big problem. I miss you and I love you. I’ll come to your grave soon and I’ll sit there with flowers and talk to you about my life and how it is with out you.

Life After Life - Raymond Moody
That book should be on your must read list. It will help you to understand that life does not end at what your mind considers death. It is death to you because you have no more contact with the person. The truth is that a soul is made up from electricity and can not die. It can change vessels but is still very much alive. Many times you can not see electricity yet it is still there. Millions of people around the world have been pronounced dead and returned with tales of life after death. I have been pronounced dead and left my body in ICU. I was revived and I know for a fact beyond any shadow of a doubt that there IS an afterlife. I got to see many of my dead relatives before being sent back to recover. This book helped me so much to understand what happened and I think it can help you to understand that your relative and you are separated only by time. One day you will reunited. He may already be sending you clues of his afterlife. Like a scent of flowers or a book falling into your lap he liked. You will know when he sends you a signal that he is aware of your pain. Please read the book so you may understand his journey. You know a rider would never turn back! NO FEAR!
