Remembering Zachary

As time quickly goes by and we are reminded of all the things that are coming up…. We are quickly reminded that 23 months ago (almost) my precious son lost his earthly battle to Mito.  He touched so many lives are there is never a day that I don’t think about him and wonder what he would be doing.  I wonder how it would be for him in school, would he be graduating from kindergarten this year.  I wonder who his best friend would be, If he would still like stickers, who his favorite character would be.  If he would still love to give hugs as much as he did.  I wonder if his smile would look the same.  I wonder how Aden and him would interact.

In saying this I would like to announce Remembering Zachary.  To Touch and Make their illnesses a tad easier for the 2nd anniversary of his passing we want his memory to live on through donations of the following items to be collected by the Moody Family donated at Scottish Rite (TICU/PICU) in honor of Zachary. Zachary died June 14, 2011 after a life long battle with mitochondrial disease.  Zach may have mito but the mito didn’t have him.  We would like to remind others that they are not alone and while the four walls they are in might seem small there is a world that cares for them!

Items and ideas, please know that you can donate other things as well:

-hotwheels, cars, trucks, other vehicles of any size

-babies or other dolls

-markers all sizes and types

-paper: copy paper, construction paper of all sizes


-new dress up clothes (boys and girls)

We will be more than happy to go shopping for you if it would be easy to mail money, checks, or gift cards.  There is a store that is near us called ( It is a place that I will be doing most of the shopping, all of the items are under 5 bucks but they have a nice assortment of games, beauty items, toys and other things that would be loved by those at the hospital.  If you have this store near you please check it out and consider buying from there it would be an easy way to take a little and help a lot.  Please know that if you can donate one item that would be accepted gladly or if you can donate many more that is accepted as well, we really just want to touch as many lives as we possibly can
