Over a thousand people attended the University of Maryland student's memorial service held on March 21 at the Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City. I couldn't help but notice that it was raining that morning, as if the weather was mimicking our community's tears. Then, suddenly, the rain stopped and the sun came out. Symbolic of Lederer, a ray of sunshine broke through the clouds to bring hope to his friends and family. His inspiration is a legacy to our community. Thank you, Zach — and rest easy.
