This one is hard to deal with. Hung out with him a few times with my sister. Really nice guy.
The guy who hit him almost hit Ashley a few miles before.
It's a fucked up world. It really is.
I'm gonna miss you, sweets.

Aaron was a really good friend of mine. I've known him for a number of years and he's the one i'd run to when i was having a hard time with life. He was alwayz there and alwayz knew just how too cheer me up. A few years ago, i was extremely depressed and very suicidal. If it wasn't for Aaron, i honestly probably wouldn't be here. He's my hero. I love him so unbelievably much. He is one person i will never forget. I pray to him and talk to him daily. And when it's my turn to come home, i know he'll be right there at those doors with open arms and i'm just gonna sit in his arms and cry and tell him all the things i never had the guts to tell him and make sure he knows how much i love him. I'm never gonna let him go. Aaron will NEVER be forgotten. "WE LOST A FRIEND BUT GAINED A FAMILY".
