Understanding a personal loss through experience


I found this on a friends Facebook page and thought it so profoundly explains the situation of loss. Loss of a parent, child, sibling no one truly understands until it comes home to you personally.

Each loss brings a new set of circumstances, the family member died from an illness, or sudden, unexplained death without a logical cause, or homicide; missing persons must be the worst case of all these. The not knowing is suspense without mercy.

God bless each of our WordPress family suffering a loss; terminal illness, a missing child, victim of homicide, even the loss of a dearly loved pet as the New Year approaches.

Thank you to each of you who have offered comfort to me and followed the tragedy of the death of my son Raymond Zachry. Finally a sort of victory last Thursday as the widow was sentenced to jail for forgery and perjury.

But the victory is shallow – still no indication that anyone in Montgomery County Pennsylvania office of District Attorney or coroner is concerned that the events surrounding Ray’s sudden, unattended death are questionable, vague. The autopsy (www.denied-justice.com) is incomplete; reports do not add up to a complete scenario; they are contradictory. The police report does not match the coroner report account of the incident; witness statements and explanation to independent investigators do not match any of the reports.

And, most of all the new widow, Darlene Zachry’s statement of where she was and how she learned of her husband’s death does not add up to documents obtained through public information requests.

Still, I am told the incident has been “investigated”. I must ask, by whom?

Is there no accountability, no responsibility?

In the what if category: Ray’s blood toxicology reports (2 of them from different laboratories) indicate a huge amount of a lethal chemical barium. According to an independent toxicologist (hear and see his report here), either report indicates a quantity that is lethal.

Where did this chemical come from, how did it get into his blood? Is there more somewhere, in the community, in the house in Souderton, PA that has been sold and new people are living there. Have they experienced any symptoms of poison? Have they found any suspicious chemical powder?

Why can’t I find these answers Montgomery County Pennsylvania District Attorney Risa V. Ferman?

    • Thank you for the re-post of this story. There are so many in the circle of WordPress friends who are suffering from challenges that this speaks to all of those who have lost a loved one.

      God bless.



  5. My heart agonizes for you Shirley I wish you could find answers, as I wish for myself. We may never know justice for the taking of our childs life and that is almost as unbearable as losing them. I pray for us daily that we might obtain answers and justice, along with mercy, grace and strength to carry on. I champion your endeavor and wish for you a satisfactory answer in 2013. God Bless you dear one.



  6. Oh Shirley my heart breaks for you!! How about a Senator or Congressman? I wish I could say “Justice will be served” with confidence, but my friend I can’t! Hugs and fond regards!



    • Thank you Tersia, with all the heartache you are struggling with, I feel like a wimp…but I have faith that one day – we will know.

      It was a strange situation, sitting with my daughter Kathy among criminals awaiting their fate before the judge, and somehow they seemed to realize we were the mother and sister of the husband she had victimized through her criminal acts. They were offering their sympathy for us that she did not get more of a sentence.

      When the judge read the sentence – there was a groan among the spectators. If only they were a jury.
