In Memory of Zachary Birkholz

On behalf of Zach's mom and his siblings we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We are still a few thousand short from what we need to raise please keep sharing and those donations coming as in this hard time we can help alleviate some of the stress. Thank you so much to every who has been so supportive to the family .

Update :  
Due to the amount of people that will be coming... Zach’s viewing will be 10 to 12 and the ceremony will start at 12 on Friday September 21, 2018. 

A good friend of mine, Laura Rodriguez, lost her son, Zachary Birkholz, last night unexpectedly. Zach was a freshman at Harlem 9th grade campus. He was always full of life and always tried to make people smile. Laura and her family are asking for help for his funeral. She is at a lost for words. The family is asking for time to process all of this grief so they may not respond right away to texts, phone calls or facebook messages. 

Any kind of help would be appreciated at this time. Thank you! 

YOU WILL BE MISSED ZACH!
