I don't know of any young person that was more dedicated to her Lord and Savior than Zay! I was privileged to attend Grand Rapids School of Bible and Music for only one year with Zay.. She was the example of love and the Joy of the Lord. She was the Sunshine in the lives of countless people.

Zay was such a bright spot in the Women's Bible Study that met at Mary Chapman's home for 13 years. She had great faith and a gentle, encouraging spirit. She taught us a lot. We will miss her this side of Glory, but look forward to the great reunion in heaven! May God comfort Zay's family. They have been faithfully at her side through her journey. Love, Jan Theisen
