To "Zacharys_mom" I knew Zach from xbox 360 (online) He was my best friend online and the last thing he told me was that he wanted to play "Halo 3" again, and that I was the best 13 year he ever knew, I didn't think that would of been the last time I saw or heard of him ever again...

Im just enougher good friend of a great guy...

Thank You, You make me extremely proud and Im sure Zac feels the same.
As for you Mike, I dont care what kind of parent you claim to be. To get on a website and talk bad about a child who has passed, just shows you to be a heartless piece of crap. My son went to spend the night at a friends house when the accident happened, I had no clue what a tank battery was. So, explain to me how Im a bad parent...because I let my 14 yr old son spend the night with a friend or was it because I didn't warn him about something that I didn't know was dangerous. I really do understand the need you must feel to blame someone, but I can feel good about what a loving boy Zachary is and know that I had alot to do with that.
So who was it that caused you to become the cold-hearted piece of trash you turned out to be?
I only found out yesterday and alL ready I MISS HIM!!!!!!!!!!

For all of you that want to say my son was stupid or tried to kill himself, that just proves you didnt know him at all. He did not know what was in the tank since there were no signs stating what it was. He did not work in the oil field and did not grow up around those tanks, his grandmother has a tank like that one on her property and it holds water. He lit the lighter to see what was inside not to create a boom. Ask Riley! To Walter and Majik you are no more than 2 lonely voices on pages full of people that knew and loved Zachary. I have talked to the land owner, who had explored the tank himself, he is a grown man. There doesnt have to be a flame, they will also explode from static electricity. Thank you to all of Zac's friends sending him love. I love you all. One thing about Zac that I wish had been spread around is that he did not judge anyone I wish more people could do the same.
I was your neighbor, your House looked like a dump in side and out.your dog was skin and bones. and lets don't forget about the horse you were to poor to own and feed. no food in the house cause you needed to buy drugs.you can be poor and keep your house clean.
