My Heart aches for you. Not only were you loved and admired by so many you were truly The Best Son a Father could ever Have. Till Than Son. Dad
Sat by the river and drank a beer for both of us. Smile Beautiful is what I told myself all day yesterday as you told me to :) I know one day I will see your face and hear those amazing words "Hi Hunny" from you!!! Has anybody told you they love you lately......
I can't believe it will be one year since we lost you. This year has gone by so fast. I am greatful that you are no longer in pain. I have so many wonderful and fun memories of you. the words "Thank you" does not say enough or convey how much I am greatful for you being in my life. You made this world brighter and wonderful just by being yourself. You were and still are amazing to me. You are still loved and missed so very much by all of us. Aaron you are an angel. I am so greatful for your friendship and your love. You truly were a remarkable man. You will not be forgotten. Love ya! XO
Had a great day with your mom yesterday! It was like old times and brought up so many wonderful memories when we were all together. I could feel your warmth and your smile. I could even hear that wonderful laugh of yours and see the sparkle in your eyes. We had a great day talking about you and all the good times we had. You will never be forgotten! I am greatful for each and every day and moment I got to share with you.
I miss you. Everything reminds me of you. The purple blossoms that you cut for your mom. Puddle driving. Late night dates. I miss you.
I have been thinking of you so much lately. Your smile, your warmth and how amazing you were and still are, and always will be to me. You made my life better than I ever thought it could be. Thank you for being so wonderful, kind and love. Aaron, you will not be forgotten!
Funny some posted here and this morning I was dreaming about Aaron again.
Thank you for loving me for me! I miss you each and everyday but I smile, cuz that's what you always told me to do! I love you, "always and forever"
I dreamed about you last night. You were young, and hanging out with your friends and I was so happy to see you. I just dropped what I was doing and ran and gave you a hug. Silly dreams, silly tears in my eyes missing you.
Happy Birthday Aaron! Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. You blessed me with your kindness, friendship and never ending love. I am so grateful to have been apart of your life. Your generosity, kindness and sincerety were just a few of your wonderful characteristics. I have so many great memories of you and the fun times we spent together. No matter how sick you were you always could make me smile and laugh. I could never say thank you enough. I am glad I got to spend so much time with you last year. We had a great time on your birthday surrounded by friends and family. You touched so many peoples lives in a positive way. You were always willing to go the extra mile to help other. Your gentle fun loving spirit will live on forever. Happy Birthday my friend. Thank you for improving my life beyond measure. I miss you very much. Love ya!
Missing you terribly........thank you for blessing me with your love.
You were one of my favorite treasures I was given in my life... My personal sweet pea. Aaron I miss you so much its almost to hard to think about. I miss your voice, your laugh, your "What do you know" remark...! I never met anyone that could talk for hours on the phone like you could and still never run out of things to talk about. Really miss that! I know I cant see you again but I wish there was a phone in heaven. I think of all the laughter that was so freely given, your kindness. I truly believe I had met my match with you... Your crazy spontaneity to jump in the truck and drive, your energy to embarrass me in public, your zest and desire to live life to the fullest. You were someone who appreciated everything. I don't have enough words to express how you are missed. I know the lord had you in my life for a reason and thou you are missed I will see you again. I am glad you are in no more pain and your heart is full of love and peace. I know thru our conversations without a doubt that you are up there with the angels... You were a good father and your father in heaven knows and sees all... You will be blessed in many ways in heaven for sure. Sandy thank you for your kindness and for having such a wonderful son. I having a son myself cannot imagine this loss. Just know that my prayers are with you always and I love you and I am always here in any way you need me. You blessed me with sharing that wonderful son of yours and opening your arms to me. May God bless your family and may the Lord wrap his loving arms around all of you. Aaron keep me a warm seat and stock the pond!!! I will see you again someday and I am bringing a pole...:) Sweet dreams~Sweet pea & Godbless you!
With Deepest Sympathy at this sad time. A special life has passed from sight... Our heavenly creator is Love in his memory we are not forgotten 1John 4:8
Aaron, from the very first time I met you I thought to myself, now this is a wonderful kid. I got to spend some quality time with you while you helped me do some wiring on my Chiloquin Home. I knew you were special. Your jokes, your teasing your laughter will always stay with me. I was very proud to call you son. Dad's heart is breaking. He is missing you Boog. You are our special angel in Heaven. Life will never be the same without you in it. But you are out of all your pain now son. No worries no heart aches. You were a good dad. You loved your children. God has a Special Place for You. Maybe teaching kids to fish. Look down upon your Clara & Clay & pray for them. Watch over them. There will be no more tears in Heaven. No more tears.
Till we meet again........Gone Fish'n
Aaron, thank-you for being our friend. I prayed very hard that you recover from this illness. God wanted you now. Only the very best people get to be with him. I think you must have suffered a lot, and I am sure the good Lord wanted that to all stop for you. I am certain you are at peace now, and I am grateful for this. You will always continue to be in our prayers.
You left me too soon...I miss you...your laughter and smiles will be in my heart forever Aaron...<3
Sandi and Keith - There are no words...this is not how it is supposed to be..the memories of the good times will help ease the pain..My thoughts are with you and your family
It's has almost been one week since you left us. I miss you everyday! It is hard not to call your phone and hear the laughter in your voice.
I am sorry the children were not allowed to say their good byes to you or attend your service - we will let them know how much you loved them and what a great man you were!
Rest in peace my friend. You will always be loved and remembered for the great man that you were.
I got the call last night from my Mom, Susan Smith, who was married to my Dad, Don Smith. Aaron''s Uncle and brother of Keith. I can't tell you how sad I am. As a child, I will never forget Aaron teasing me, and me giving my first and only attempted punch to a human being. He went off crying, and I assumed I was dead meat. The adults were all at the table, and I got off light. It became a family joke that he grew so much bigger than me and that was last time I would win a fight against him or any of my cousins. I'm taking my family to Chapman reservoir this Fourth of July week and to Crosho lake. I had planned it before, but I will say an extra prayer for Aaron.
Kenny and I will miss you so much. I will never forget your huge smile. We pray that you are at peace and out of pain finally. Clara and Clay ~ Your Dad was a great man who loved you both very much. Always remember this.
Grieving with you. Praying for the entire family during this difficult time.
I am going to miss Aaron very much. The one thing I will miss most is that no matter when or where he saw me weather it be at church or the store the first thing that would come out of his mouth is "Oh look here comes trouble" or "Hey trouble!" Aaron loved teasing me ever since I was a little girl I was always "Trouble" and I would act like it annoy the heck out of me. I used to act like I was getting mad. I remember at a dessert social at church when I was in a bad mood I went to leave to go to some other part of the church. He was be right behind me and would not leave me alone till I went back to the social. "Trouble" might of been his nick-name for me but he was there quite a few times to keep me out of trouble and that is what I will miss most. I would trade anything just to hear him call me "Trouble" again.
Sandi, Kendra, Jarod and family. My heart goes out to you. Aaron was a wonderful man with a big heart. He will be deeply missed. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Aaron, I only met you a couple of times when you were with Jules. But, those few times showed me enough to know that you were a good man and very special with Julee. Thank you for adding such joy to her life. RIP my friend.
Keith, so sorry to hear of your loss, we have wonderful memories of Aaron when he was growing up. You and your family are in our prayers. Love Rob & Marcia.
Sandi, thank you for bringing such a wonderful person into this world. The children and I love Aaron and you so very much. I will love him always. He came into my life just at the right time God wanted him to. Aaron was always joking around with me and the kids, one day on one of his visits to Redding, I took him to the farmer's market and took him to an egg vendor. I showed him a really cool egg and told him it was a Woodpecker egg. He was in awe because he had never seen one before. I told him to look closer and he realized the egg was made of wood. He laughed so hard he almost tipped over the strawberry table. The memory of you will always make me smile. Aaron, my loving friend, I will love you and honor our friendship forever...save me a seat, we shall meet again.
So thankful for the time we spent last year and the closeness we shared. Going to miss you Aaron. You were a miracle from the day you were born!! Love you...see you soon
With prayers to all the family and friends.
Aaron im sad I can't be there to see you off to heaven your a good man thank you for everything you did for my family you will be missed.
You were my best friend and my rock for 20 yrs. Always made people smile and find the good in things. You are the greatest man, father and friend I know. Tyler and I will forever cherish our long awaited year together, our fishing trips, house hunting, drives to the lake, all the evenings with your mom, and the time we got to spend with your dad and deborah! We love you and know you are with us <3
You are and will always be a great man to me. You added so much value to my life. Thank you for loving me SO MUCH! We had a great year babe! Love you with all my heart! XO
Aaron you will be greatly missed by all who knew you. When we drive by Anderson cabin, we will always think of you. Prayers to you Sandy and your family during this time. Heaven has a new Angel.
Although I had not seen Aaron in many years I will always remember the great times we had from concerts to camping. Aaron was a good man. My condolences go out to you Sandy, Keith, Jarrod and Kendra. Aaron will truly be missed!
Sandi, thank you for your recent kindness to my family. My heart breaks for you. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.
My Deepest Sympathy. You will be missed by many. You are now out of the pain you suffered for the last three years. God Bless
Aaron was a wonderful, warm and giving person. Anyone who knew him at all will miss him forever.
Aaron I'm so thankful that I got to spend time with u before you left us, you were such a huge part of my life and always will be. Thanks for dinner the other night , I will cherish that meal for the rest of my life, I'm sad ur gone but thankful you no longer have to suffer. I don't think I will ever meet a bigger JOKER than you, never a dull moment when u were around, lol. I love you so much and I'm going to miss you so much.
Sandi...We know your heart is breaking. So very sorry. One of our great joys was to know your parents and also Keith's...and of course, we went to school together. Our prayers and warmest wishes are with you and your family. The Rev. Fred and Adair Heard, Cambria, CA
Thank you for all the great things you did for my family! They truly loved you like a son.... our hearts are hurting for you and your Mom. She was a rock going to the hospital everyday to be by your side. I know you will watch over her like she did for you!! Rest in peace Aaron, you are already missed.
I got to see Aaron over Mother's day weekend...and his Mom. Aaron stayed with my Mom and Dad for a week before he went into the hospital. He helped my Dad wire his new shop. Aaron was so helpful to my family and I truly appreciate it. Sandy, his mom, is a great woman. She stood by his side daily. God needed an Angel to wire something special.......he will be missed!! We love you Aaron!!
Keith, I was so sorry to read about your son. My deepest condolences. You and family will be in my prayers.
You are in a better place. No pain and God is close by. My prayers are with you and your family. God Bless...
Will always carry the times we spent forever in my heart. You taught me many things and made some days that I felt like not wanting to live you turned them around and made me ok again. Without you here brings great sadness to my heart. I will forever be missing you
Growing up you were like the little brother I never had. All the times that I spent with you and your family are the fondest memories of my childhood. From the many fishing trips, camping, many summer days in the swimming pool at your house, and all the family dinners that I was part of. You were such a great man, father, brother, son, uncle, grandson and cousin to all that crossed your path. RIP
Although we only spent a little time together, those times will always bring good memories I'll never forget.
