Zach Sobiech

May 20, 2013

As the storms declared their power and all encompassing control of where the damage will come to rest last night, a family grappled their own storm.
Today the sun glows brilliantly.  A complete contrast to the ominous, threatening winds and rains of last evening.

As we assess the damage around our yard this morning...minor, but still needing the help of our insurance heart is heavy for the Sobiech family as their dear one has passed away.
The weather storms have caused considerable damage in our geographical area of the country, but more importantly, the physical storm of cancer has taken the life of a incredible young man far too young to die.  

I have gotten to know this family only through the words of their caring bridge site.  Zach taught many how to live.  What a legacy he leaves his family.  How proud they must all be.

May God wrap his loving arms around this family and grant them peace.
