Zach’s parents also posted a special birthday message for their oldest child. The proud mom, Kelly Jo, writes:

Even now, as busy as you are, not too many days can pass without a text, a call, a visit, a few words of encouragement from you… If I could accurately describe how I feel about you, I’d have to create a new word that blended the words: ‘love,’ ‘admiration,’ ‘respect,’ & ‘proud’ all together to make one new word of ultimate praise and recognition! And even that wouldn’t probably do justice to describing how truly proud I am of you! I love you so much!”

Kelly Jo also includes a few recent family photos. They feature herself and her husband Gil, along with Zach’s family. See the photos here.

Zach’s brother Lawson Bates shared a funny photo and a serious photo of the two. You can see the pictures here.
