I have know Aubrey since high school and I talked to him about 2 months ago to see how he was doing. It's been a month now and I still can't believe he is gone. To his family I am praying for you to be strong and get through this. God knows what is best and he did this for a reason even if it doesn't seem fair to us. But I just want to say again stay strong and god bless you.

Dear Venita, Jimmy and Jane'
How I wish I could find the words to tell you how saddened I am over the passing of your son Aubrey. I know there are many friends and loved ones who are keeping you in their prayers as I am. Please find comfort in our prayers for you and your family.

There are a couple of scriptures that I'd like to share with you when you have the time and desire to look at them. John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:4....these all hold out the hope of the resurrection.

God bless you Venita...I send my love to you and yours.

Dear Nita: I tried so hard to find the words that might bring you comfort, however I know from my own experience of losing someone I love deeply that sometimes there are no words that can bring comfort at this time so soon. I wanted you to know that you are on my heart and my spirit also grieves for your loss. May our Lord thy God take you in his arms and hold you ever so tight, while showering you with His Love and care. Yes it hurts, and Yes it hurts, but I can assure you one day, our Father finds a way to soften the blow of loss. I send you all my love and all my prayers of comfort and peace. Love you Nita. Ro-ro

Nita K,

God Bless you and your family, as we know that he will never leave or forsake us, especially in our time of need. " None of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord." Romans 14:7-8

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 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're coming here to me.

Nita, my prayers are with you and your family. I am a mother with only one son. I can only image what you are going through but I know God will carry you through. Here a poem I dedicate to you and Aubrey.

The Cord
We are connected, my child and I, by an invisible cord not seen by the eye.
It's not like the cord that connects us 'til birth. This cord can't be seen by any on Earth.
This cord does its work right from the start. It binds us together attached to my heart.
I know that it's there though no one can see. The invisible cord from my child to me.
The strength of this cord is hard to describe. It can't be destroyed. It can't be denied.
It's stronger than any cord man could create. It withstands the test and can hold any weight.
Though you are gone and you're not here with me. The cord is still there but no one can see.
It pulls at my heart. I am bruised...I am sore, but this cord is my lifeline as never before.
I am thankful that God connects us this way.
A mother and child…death can't take it away!

To God be the Glory for the things he has done. Venita, I know your heart is heavy and darkness all around, but just look to God and he will be the one to wipe all your tears and away and bring you out into his marvelous light!! When the service is over and all friends and love ones go back to their homes, remember God will still be there with you. I want you to know that because its real. I know you are a strong woman of faith, allow him to dwell within. I am praying still for you and your family, and will always be a phone call or facebook message away. I love you with the love of God!! Be blessed and allow OUR GOD to do the rest because he cares for you!

Soul Secrets for the death of someone you love
O Lord,I have lived this day to bury one I love. My gratitude is full as my grief, and my peace is as deep as my pain--all because of You. I need You as never before. Shepherd my soul through these dry and heavy days. You send us to this earth for a season and then You receive us again unto Yourself.I understand this cycle, but I wasn't quite as ready to let go of this one as I though I'd be All my life I've known that someday this would happen but the finality and reality of it ar piercing. One thing I know, that death cannot kill love and human hands can't bury it. On this, my loved one's resurrection day, I give You praise for a life lived well.
Always all my Love

Venita, Jimmy and family,
When we lose a loved one to death it is perfectly normal to grieve. We must honor and recognize each stage of the grief and evry emotion we have. There will be shock, denial, anger, confusion, fear, helplessness, numbness, and eventually, acceptance. There will be a point when we don't know what to do, but we want to something. At this point we must understand and acccept it, there is no death; there is no end; there is only transformation. Your loved one now exists in a new time, new place, new reality-and so do we. The relationship has been transformed. You owe it to yourself and the memory of your son to grieve and cleanse your soul. My prayers are with you and your family.

In sad times like these I like to remember the good times…I remember you, Jimmie, Aubrey and I were all just about hoarse at the T-ball game cheering for Rashad, Jaronn and all the other boys and then laughing until it hurt because none of the kids really knew what was going on, but they were just having a great time!

Dear Venita & Family,

I can't promise that tomorrow will be better. I can't tell you that I fully understand why things happen. It's hard to know just what to say at this sad time because your loss is so great and because your Son will be missed in so many ways. But even though no words can truly comfort you right now, know that God is your comforter He will see you through. Perhaps in time through the power of pray God will ease your pain V.J.. I happen to know you're a very strong person you have an inner source (The Holy Spirit) that same strength is with you now and I know He will pull from with-in you the energy you need to go beyond this and any challenges you face

Psalms 55:22 "Cast your Cares on the Lord and he will sustain you: he will never let the righteous fall."

To the family stay encourged and know that God will see you through.

All my Love,

Dearest V.J. and family,

My deepest heartfelt sympathy for you and your beloved family. My heart breaks for the loss of Aubrey and to those who knew him and loved him.

V.J., I remember Aubrey when he was about 4 years old, and you would bring him to work sometimes at 444 Sherman. He would sit there and draw and color on our typing paper. Cutest litttle fellow with those big brown eyes that would melt butter. I remember you, T. and Aubrey coming over to our apt. at Newgate Apartments in Southwest Denver to pick a T.V. set that Gordon and I wanted to give to Aubrey.

So many little memories of your little guy. I am so glad to have shared some special times with you and Aubrey.

Thank you, V.J., for allowing me to be a tiny part of your lives. I shall never forget Aubrey.

Your long-time friend and associate,
With Love,
