Please help Zach's father get him back home!

Here is a portion of one story I have received from Zach's uncle Josh, I hope this helps you better understand the beautiful person we lost!

My name Joshua Adam Holmes …Uncle to the now deceased Zachary Michael Alexander Holmes.

I just want to speak out on the senseless death of my nephew and tell what kind of person He was. Zach was a charismatic person with a contagious laugh, that made everyone smile. Whatever it was we all know he was special. Not only was he my nephew he was my friend. The kind of friend that would be there when times got tough..

Zach and I where close. He was a generous and giving person .There was never a time when he had that he would not gladly share. Zach and I went through a lot of things together. And through those times he showed me what the real meaning of family is. I remember when life for me was at it worst….. I was alone …had no one. He was the one that was there. He took the time to be there for me in anyway he could. Even if it was just his company. He was there and I’ll never forget it.

Zach’s life was full of love from his family who from the time he came into this world until the day he left it loved him!

Thinking back of him when he was a young child and could barely talk. He use to wear his red power rangers outfit and get into fighting position and say “Fight!?” He was a strong person from the beginning. The person I know as Zachary Holmes will always be remembered for who he truly was. And I’m I here today to say No One deserves to have any love one ripped out of there life, especially in such a brutal and life disrespecting undoable way. There are no words that can describe the pain and loss we feel. The terrible realization that someone in this word was silicented FOREVER! Not just simply my family member but a living , loving and caring human being!

Its sad in these days how cheap life is in this new cold world which avoids connection for recognition. This nightmare reality that has found its way into my life and the lives of to many families across the world. Its time we stop sleeping walking around through life with this attitude of nothing personal. Its All personal. Life itself is very personal and precious.

At one point we both where on the same paths.. I’m not here to say he was perfect… or that my hurt is greater than anyone else… I here only to say all life matters.

I know things will be said that are negative about Zach. I’m am proof that we can over come our past. I lost it all and returned into society with only the clothes my family provided.. But that doesn’t change the fact that murder is murder.

I wont stand by and let this just be another case! Zach matters…. Life matters !!!

I’m here to speak for the one who has been silenced…
I’m here to be the voice for Zach.
Please don’t allow this tragedy to go in noticed.
With love in my heart,

Zachary lost his life to a senseless act of violence defending himself, his loved ones and his home. 
There aren't enough words to express our sorrow!
You are today and will be forever in our thoughts!
We will all miss you deeply,
Michael A Holmes
