In memory of Zachary Wells

Created by Family Of Zachary Wells

Zachary Wells

My son, Zachary Daniel Wells, died at the age of 16 from a heroin overdose.

He began "casually" drinking at the age of 8 when I divorced his father. His father and grandparents allowed it. It escalated to pot. I tried to get help but was told, "It's just pot. There's nothing we can do."  Then onto bigger things. I don't believe he was addicted but he was on the path. Why isn't there help BEFORE a child becomes an addict? Zack was a confused boy with a heart of gold. When he died, so many people told me stories of his loyalty.

If drugs were something I could kill, I'd gladly spend the rest of my life in prison to stop this madness.
