Friends of Zachary,
I would normally not send another post quite this close to one another but I would be remiss if I didn’t take a few minutes to point out the two “Unsung Hero’s” in my life. With this post, I honor my Wife (Deena) and Son (Matthew) for the unwavering effort, support and true compassion for Zachary. Being on 24 hours, 7 days a week is truly a remarkable feat. Deena and Matthew have been by Zachary’s side as any Mother and Brother would do. When I am at my worst, Deena is at her best. When Zachary is down, his brother is continuously there to lift his spirits, show tremendous support, and treat Zachary as normal as possible (And Yes…that includes fighting over the Xbox). A mantra I have instilled in the boys since they were young children is…“Brothers Stick Together No Matter What”. I think they now understand why this phrase is so appropriate at this time in our lives.
Deena never looks or expects accolades or praise for her commitment to Zachary’s well being. Again, no parent under these conditions would do anything less than what she has achieved. I simply want to share how proud I am of this amazing woman and acknowledge Deena is the love of my life. I could not have done this without her!!
It Takes a Village…And a wonderful partner!!
