I knew Aaron when he was a little boy in Amariilo, Tx. Aaron was a sweet, shy, and was very kind. Aaron loved his cars and action figures and loved to read stories. Him and his little brother, Josh, would come and play with our kids and they always had a good time. We enjoyed them very much and i remember praying with them on occassion and hearing their sweet prayers. Our heart is sad knowing he is gone from this earth, but we do rejoice knowing that he knew the Lord as his Savior. God has promised those who trust in him will have eternal life forever. Aaron is now in the arms of his creator and father. This earth is just a temporary home for us all. May your hearts be comforted with the love of our father, Jesus, and have the peace only that he can give to you. You are all in our prayers. Love, Bill and Cindy Conn, Jefferson, Oregon

Aaron was one of the kindest people I ever had the pleasure of knowing! I spent a summer in high school skateboarding almost every day with him! He taught me all about local Richmond skating! We’d jam together! He played guitar while I slapped my bass! I wasn’t very good but he always made me feel like that was ok and that I kept up fine, even though I know I didn’t. We lost contact after he moved to Texas to finish high school but he was a true best friend for the years that I got to spend with him! He was a kind genuine loyal soul who taught me so much in such a short period of time. Love you brother!
