Not sure what to say?

The best advice I can ever give anyone, take the leap... Close ur eyes give it up to God and take the leap. I missed the chance, will never have it again. Aaron u taught me so much about life, love, and understanding. Our souls are forever connected... The pain I still feel to my core tells me that u were right, we were soul mates in every sense of the word. I feel u with me, see u in my dreams, and know when my day is hard I can still feel ur gentle kiss and strong arms wrapped around me. U...

I really wouldn't know where to begin to express Aaron's passing. He was the most uplifting, rock hard, easygoing, touching brother I could ever have. You were my saving grace, my other half of my heart. There's not a day that doesn't go by I don't call upon you...please stay with me. I know he is in the greatest hands of all from up above. Aaron was the most wonderful father his children could of asked for. Tristan and Gabi was his every breathe everyday and everynight, all the way to his...

Arron & I at Church! Our last 1st Wed. Service Together! Love & Miss you bunches Aaron! :(

My dad was a true man of god he was if only he had a longer time with us I had got to see my dad the night before he died I miss him dearly I know he's watch over us and taking care of us to most of us he wasn't just a friend he was family.

I think I am still shocked. I haven't seen Aaron since probably 97 or 98. But he was so funny and caring and a loving person. I know so many people who loved and cared for him deeply. I am truly saddened for his family. I send my prayers for you all.

Aaron and I worked together and soon became close friends. Our very first time meeting was in the breakroom, where we went on and on talking about dancing. The group picture I posted was one of my favorite nights. It was a very spontaneous "I haven't tried this type of dancing before (Kizomba), Aaron if you are not doing anything you are more than welcome to join me". As I was putting on my dancing shoes, there was Aaron, all smiles, walking through the door ready to have a good...

Having Fun Dancing Kizomba with Aaron

Today, I finally was able to open this and read the beautiful things everyone has said, felt and experienced with my son. I didn't just lose a son, I lost a man who was raised that family and friends are everything, and all of you who knew him, knew that in him. It makes me so proud. This will take time to adjust not hearing him on the phone on Mondays, "Hey Mom" or being able to sing my Happy Birthday song to him on the 12th of April, his 35th birthday. It touches my families...

I'm so heartbroken for my Brother Don, his wife Margie, Amanda, Aaron's children, Tristan & Gabbi, their Mother Margie, Glenda, and all Aaron's family and friends. I Have many wonderful memories watching him grow with that beautiful copper red hair and big smile. It was always quite clear how important family and friends were to him. It's such a tragic loss when a young man is in the prime of his life, working so hard to receive his college degree, have a nice home, good job, and active...
