|Yellow balloons line the steets leading to the home of Zachary Gordon Nahsohn, who drowned in a pool accident.|
Police said there were no signs of criminal negligence and the death was considered accidental.
The boy's mother, Tansy Nahsohn, explained in a Facebook post that the family had been planning Zachary's third birthday party by gathering decorations in yellow, his favorite color. Friends and church members spent today lining streets in the neighborhood with yellow balloons.
His father, Adi, posted a message on Facebook tonight, thanking those in the community for their support.
"Zachary Gordon was an AWESOME son," he wrote. "He always demonstrated love and kindness to everyone he came into contact with ... One of his greatest qualities was his eagerness to always help others. He would always say "I help you!" He taught us about the pure love of Christ.
"As his father, one of my favorite memories with him occurred daily. Every morning when I would get ready to leave for work, he would walk me to the front door. Once we were at the door, he would open the door, give me a hug and kiss and as he would hold me, he would then whisper in my ear, 'Daddy, you're my best friend!' He truly will be missed."
Those wishing to donate to the family in Zachary's name can make donations to the Zachary Gordon Nahsohn Memorial Fund at any Chase Bank Location or at this website.
