I went on Instagram this morning and saw that Zach had posted the photo you see here along with the following:
Happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful mom. Though we’ve had a tough year, you continue to inspire me with your strength every day. This is my all-time fav pic of us and I hope you have the best day today. Love you, momma!
And then I stumbled on another of his posts from 12 weeks ago, which had previously eluded me:
I love you Robbie. I’ll always love you. I’m only posting this because the world deserves to know how smart, funny, and charming you were. You were an outlaw. You were a crazy ass motherfucker. But you were my brother. You are my brother. You will be a part of me forever. You touched so many more people than you thought. I hope you know how much you are loved, and it brings me solace knowing you are no longer in pain. I’m forever thankful for the time we got to spend together this past Christmas, shooting the shit and busting each other’s balls, just like old times. I will cherish that memory for the rest of time. Luckily you gave us 2 lifetimes worth of stories so there is no doubt you will never be forgotten.
So Happy Mother’s Day, babe, to the best mom two boys could ever have.
