To Judy, my friend and sister in the Lord. To both you and Aaron's Father, I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I cannot imagine what it is like to lose a child and children don't stop being our children just because they grow up into the adults we hoped they would become. I am so glad that Aaron is no longer suffering, but thankful that I met and was acquainted with him. When I was riding my bike in the country and was near Judy's house. I had been riding for a while and I decided to stop at Judy's house. Aaron was mowing the yard at the time. So I stopped and talked with him. I also remember him when his daughter was in scouts with my granddaughter and we were all together in some kind of a meeting at a church with the scouts, don't exactly remember all that but just vaguely the meeting and Aaron was there supporting his daughter. God Bless you Aaron and may you enjoy the sweet peace that only Jesus gives to us because you too know of that sweet peace. God be with all of your family. I know they along with so many others will miss you.
Aaron was so handsome and very smart. I attended Northeast State while he was there. I’m glad I was there when he received the Outstanding Student Honor in Manufacturing Technology. I was so proud of him.
I am incredibly saddened by Aaron’s passing. He was a good friend and a good man, and he will be missed.
