Dear Jaunich Family ~
I didn't know Aaron, although I most likely saw him at CVS many times. I think of him & your family EVERYDAY, as a commuter on Hwy. 12. One year today does not lesson the pain of his loss. Know you are in our thoughts and prayers today and everyday. God Bless.
We are so sorry to hear of your loss Tom and Jill. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you in this time of great loss. May God comfort you and your family.
Michael Matanic and Linda Stolp-Matanic
so very sorry for your loss...my son Brandon Lanie was shot while deer hunting almost 6 years ago when he was 14 and he would've been 20 this year.. he was my only child..I am feeling your pain and sending prayers your way...
someone sent me this poem right after my loss and I found comfort in it..I hope you do too
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Others still need you.

Prayers are with all the family and friends
Dear Tom and Jill,
My three oldest children have fond memories of Aaron - playing with him and Brooke after the Delano parades and at your house so many years ago. They always wondered when they were young how these children had the same last name as them. Aaron used to say to them "its just our large Jaunich family." Sorry we could not stay after the funeral mass. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
With Love your cousins,
Greg, Julie, Nicholas, Jessica, Julia, Jack, Henry, Zachary, and Michael Jaunich
Praying that the love and support of family and friends will carry you through this most difficult time. So sorry for your loss.
Sending prayers for strength during this time of unbearable loss. Our hearts are with you.
Aaron was a joy. I'm so sad for those who won't have him in their lives.
Tom, Jill & Family -
Please know that I'm praying for you through this extremely difficult time. May God help you through this and continue to bestow blessing upon you.
Tom, Jill and family -
May the support from your family, friends and community help you find solace and strength during this very difficult time. The entire Elsen family extends our deepest sympathy. You are in our prayers.
Our family sends heartfelt condolences
at the tragic loss of Aaron. May God's
comforting presence enfold you, and
be your strength. Harriette Scherer and family
I did not know Aaron very well, but wanted to write what I could. The Jaunichs are beautiful, wonderful people, and the most undeserving family ever. I found out about Aaron's early departure before class and immediately a sinking feeling in my stomach took place, which hasn't left yet. I have never heard anybody say a bad word about Aaron Jaunich, he was such a nice boy and definitely the brightest person in a lot of people's lives. I hope that the Jaunichs will reach out to their community, we are around and willing to help.
Tom, Jill and family-
Such a tragic loss, I can not imagine.
It is my hope that your loving memories of Aaron will soon heal your hearts and replace your tears.
Aaron was a great friend and a wonderful person. He brightened up your day and always made everyone feel included. Forever in my thoughts and prayers.
Tom, Jill, Brooke, Bryce and Lauren,
Please accept our deepest sympathies for this tragic loss. We have our memories. Doesn't seem enough. A profound loss. Take courage in finding your way to serenity. I pray for your strength and any kind of wisdom to be gained from this terrible moment in time. So sorry, The Hartmans
Dear Tom, Jill and kids,
I am holding you all in my heart at this painful time and sending you love. Aaron has such a big heart, know that he is still sending his love to you and he can feel the love that you send to him. Much Love, Maria Peterson
Dear Jill and Tom and family
So sorry for the loss of your son Aaron. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. He always had a smile on his face when he was waiting on people at CVS.

Dear Jaunich family-
We are so sorry for your loss of Aaron. It is hard to grasp what has happened and difficult to go about a day knowing that you are suffering so deeply. May our prayers and the prayers and notes from others help you find peace in your loss. God bless you all.
Sending many prayers for Aaron's soul, and for your family's comfort & strength. I pray that God will send extra graces to help you through this difficult time.
Thinking about and Praying for you and your family during this tragic time!

To the Jaunich family,
Aaron was hands down one of the nicest people I had the pleasure of meeting. He was so funny all the time and I don't think there was a time that I saw him without a smile. He lived life the way that everyone else should, always taking the best out of it and not worrying about the little things. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you all in my prayers. I know Aaron is looking over all of us right now and I know he always will be.

We are blessed having watched Aaron grow up in your loving and supportive families that enabled him to be who he was meant to be: A great guy with an inviting personality, great sense of humor and a charming smile!
Until we meet again Aaron, we'll keep your smile in our hearts.
With love and hugs,
Lisa and Greg Krause

It's so difficult to find the right words at a time like this. Aaron was such a wonderful young man and we will miss seeing him. We are praying for your family.
To the Jaunich family:
Aaron was a great friend. He was always there to talk to when you needed a pick-me-up and always had something funny to say to make you smile. He was an amazing person with a huge heart, and I will never forget that smile he would always have on his face. Aaron brought happiness into everyone's life and I know he will continue to do the same. He was loved by everyone and he will be deeply missed by all of us as well. Many thoughts, prayers, and love are being sent your way! It will never be the same without him, but I know he is in an amazing place right now.
Tom and Jill,
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this very sad and difficult time. After reading all these wonderful messages it's obvious you raised a wonderful and loving son; he will be greatly missed by many.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jaunich family and friends as Jesus took Aaron up to Heaven way to soon. Please find comfort in this song by Micheal W. Smith * Welcome Home* when you need solace. Angels gathered around him and told him it was where he belonged now. God Bless and Huge Hug.
Prayer, love, and hugs as well as God's strength, grace, and peace, go out to you and your extended families. May you all find comfort in knowing he is "kickin it" with Grandpa Wally and Uncle Charlie! Two great men whom he did not have the honor of knowing here on earth. Can't imagine the range of emotions you are experiencing. Thinking of you...
Tom, Jill, Brooke, Bryce & Lauren,
No words can express the heartbreak we feel for you and all who knew Aaron. His bright smile and zest for life was uncompromising. We, along with so many others, will miss Aaron so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Dear Jaunich Family,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. May you find strength and comfort knowing that others are thinking of you and keeping you in their prayers. God bless you now and in the difficult days ahead.
I only knew Aaron from my brother and sister. The one time i spoke to him he told me that if i kept growing up like i was i would be prettier than my sister. To which Clare smacked him for. He seemed like the happiest kid. It breaks my heart to know he's not here for me to get to know better. But just knowing him for that few minutes makes me miss him that much more so i can't imagine how his family must feel. You are all in my prayers.
So very sorry for your loss. Lauren you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday.
Our hearts go out to you in this time of sorrow. Aaron is now with his Uncle Charlie. And may Aaron's memory live forever in your mind. It's hard when a family is touched by grief; just lean on the support of your family and friends to gather strength. Aaron was a good young man and the Lord has called him home. We hold you in our prayers. May God bless you!
Dear Tom and family,
I am so sorry to hear about your loss and wanted to offer my condolences. Tom, you were always so nice to all of us when we were young, I just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and your family. - Jenny
Tom, Jill, Brooke, Bryce, and Lauren,

Tom, Jill, and family-
Words can not express how sorry I am for your loss. May God wrap his arms around you and help you through your grief.
The bond you entire family and Aaron had can not be broken. You will meet again. I am very sorry for your loss.
There are no words for such a horrible tragedy such as losing a child. We can only trust in God that even though we don't understand why, he has a plan and Aaron is in a beautiful place, free from harm. We are always here if you need us for anything. We have great memories of Aaron and his bright sometimes shy smile. :) We hope Erik was waiting for his childhood buddy and they are off doing Gods work together now. Love and prayers to you all.
