Not sure what to say?

Brett was a genuinely nice guy. He was funny, smart, and great with us kids. He was quite the prankster even as an adult, and really helped us all have a good time. Most of my memories of him were from the times I was with the Aura's for Satch's birthday when we were all young kids. Those were fun times, I wish there were more of them. My deepest condolences to the Aura's and all the guys at the company. Cathy, Satch, Kurt, Daphne, keep your head up. I wish you guys the all the best for the...

I am so sorry to have just recently heard of Brett's passing.

All throughout our high schoool years, Brett was my most dearest friend. As a young man, your father was extremely honest, hardworking, and had a very gentle soul. He had a wonderful sense of humor, and the biggest heart.

One of my most cherished gifts from Brett, was my first dog, a beautiful black labrador retriever named Shadow. Soon after receiving...

Dear Aura family,

My deepest sympathy to you all. I'm sorry that I just recently heard of Brett's passing. Brett was such a great guy and I have many fond memories of Brett during his high school days and a bit later after high school. He was a wonderful and kind guy that you could always rely on. He was a positive person who never had a mean thing to say about anyone, he always looked for the good. He was a true friend to all.

Just a few years ago we corresponded...

Brett Aura always has been and always will be a most cherished member of the El Dorado Hills Taekwondo Family. He was already a student at the club when I took it over in the summer of 1994. He wasn't there at the time because he was fishing in Minnesota; and also running in a marathon in my home town of Duluth. He came back and was one of the 1st students that I promoted to Black Belt. I was his instructor, but I think I learned more from him than he ever did from me. He loved to practice...

Tears are shed because he is gone, and there are so many smiles because he lived. We hope the smiles from the memories your family shares will help to wash away some of the hurt from your loss.

Tomorrow the sun will rise, Just as it has for eons,Just as it has today.The world will awake to another day,and people will stumble into their busy lives as if nothing happened.How could they know this is not just another day. For you, this has been the day you thought could never come.It is the day that doesn't seem real,But it is all too real.It is the most painful thing you can ever imagine.The loss of Brett. Your world, as normal as it seemed a few weeks ago is gone,Gone forever. it has...

Our prayers for comfort and healing go out to the Aura family. The loss of a loved one is hard to take but one so young is even harder. Take comfort in knowing he does not suffer from anything and he is with the rest of the family smiling down on you. Feel the comfort of his love he shared with each and everyone of you. Brett left his mark in this world and in many hearts so even though he leaves his body behind, his spirit and love will live on forever. Remember all the good times you shared...
