Gotta Try A Little Harder (Cassette)
Dear Mr. Cruz, I just read your posting from Sept. 7, 2015. It brought back many memories. I remember the day Zachary was hit & how horrified & sick I felt inside. A needless death. For several years I've passed by Zachary's Corner on occasion, until in Oct. 2014, after returning to work after several months on disability my UCB work location changed & I passed by the corner morning & evening. I enjoyed looking at the many flowers, toys, etc. left for Zachary & I got into the habit of saying a prayer & saying hello to Zachary daily. Now back to my normal work routine I don't pass the corner daily but still somewhat frequently. Everything has been removed from the corner & I've wondered why. I don't want Zachary to be forgotten, & I miss seeing the mementos, but I can imagine a number of reasons why the corner has changed. I'm so sorry for your loss, & may have a sense of your continued sense of loss. My husband passed away on Sept. 22, 2015 from ALS. His symptoms began within a few days of an auto accident, a woman ran a red light, totaling his sturdy 1994 BMW and giving him quite a jolt. That one moment of choice/decision on her part changed our lives forever. I see drivers rolling through stop signs all the time, & I wonder, since when is stopping at a stop sign/red light optional? Please accept my condolences, & know I am one of probably many individuals who never knew Zachary but think & pray for him often.
