They did not know each other but there was a connection. It started with Ian seeing a photo of friends Zaching...Ian turning to Brian and asking him to help him Zaching. To Ian's photo of him Zaching being shared...there was a connection. Hard to explain but from stories that were shared with us you just know.
From us sharing some of Zach's story with Ian and his response of "that sucks" to some of Ian's story being shared with Zach and Zach smiling when he heard they would met one day. There was a connection. To Ian receiving a Zaching shirt and insisting on wearing it for his school photo. There was a connection...one day.
Rest in peace Zach
