    I've known Colby since he was in the 8th grade where he was not only a fine athlete, but also a model student, and even more importantly, a great kid who everyone loved being around. It was an honor and privilege to be his teacher and coach and then later, his friend. This great pain, which we can never forget will stay in our hearts until in our despair creates wisdom through the awful grace of God. To those who have the misfortune to die young, history assigns the role of inspirer... The most sincere of condolences go out to Colby's mom and dad, his wonderful sisters Darby and Shelby (Cliff) as well as Tim and Sharon. Love you all, Zach
