It’s time to go
Your work is done
There was some pain
But mostly fun
There will be laughs
There will be tears
Thinking of you
Throughout the years
You will be missed
My lifelong friend
We meet again.
“We are so blessed that you are honoring Zachary with a memorial garden. We are pleased that he will be remembered forever in the city of York. Zachary would be humbled because he was "just" doing his job, he was "just" helping a friend, he was "just" helping someone in need; because that is "just" the love that Zachary had for everyone.
We have peace because we know that Zachary heard ‘Well done, good and faithful servant' (Matt 25:23) as he entered heaven.
We miss him every day, and we are so thankful that the city of York and the residence of this fine city love Zachary!
As Zach always said "MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!"
Karen, Ray, Marc and Samuel.
ABOUT THE GARDEN MEMORIALS
We have brought together three groups: Their families, the Fire Department they served valiantly, and the neighborhood residents who live where the fire happened. Together, we envisioned three professionally designed gardens and patios which will serve as a vibrant, living memorial. It is a fitting tribute to their life and their sacrifice.
The gardens are designed by Dannie Wright from Hilltop Garden Design. The three gardens will feature the following flowers/plants:
- Acanthus spinosus
- Viburnum plicatum 'Mariesii
- Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low
- Nasella tenuissima
- Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Joy
- Polygonatum odoratum 'Variegatum
- Ceratostigma plumbagonoides
- James Galway
- Dwarf Mondo Grass
- Echinacea purpurea 'Pow Wow White
