What beautiful pictures. I am so glad that your family had the opportunity to say goodbye and to love on Aaron. I am sure the veil was very thin and that the pictures only show about half the people who were in the room.

Aaron is an amazing person. He has touched the lives of so many in just a few short months.

Thank you, Denise and Ronny and kiddos, for sharing Aaron with us. I pray that you will be filling with peace and comfort.

I stand all amazed at the strength, faith, courage, and love your family has displayed throughout this past year as Aaron's earthly mission progressed. Your families example has strengthened my family and Aaron has touched our hearts. He was an angel on earth. Our prayers will continue to be with your family as "forward you roll." We love you!

Suzanne said...

I've been thinking of your family all day. I'm so sorry. I pray that you will feel the overwhelming peace of the spirit, and that it will comfort you at this time. He was and is an amazing boy. I know that the blessings of his short stay here will continue to manifest themselves for years to come.

Sarah said...

These pictures go right to my heart. Saying goodbye to Aaron must be bitter sweet. I'm glad that he is not in pain or suffering now. I am so thankful for the knowledge we have of where he has gone; that he is perfect, and won't suffer ever again--and that he will continue to grow and serve and touch lives on the other side.
I think this experience will help your children understand the plan of salvation in a very real way. It will be a blessing to bring your family together. Aaron will be missed, but he will always be yours.
We're keeping all of you in our prayers.

love,
Hyer Family

I am so sorry to hear about your sweet little guy. The pictures are beautiful. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers!

Kristi Smemoe said...

I have been drawn into your family's story for many months now. When I saw your blog post this morning my heart just broke, especially at seeing the pictures. How wonderful that you could all be there to say goodbye. Never have I seen a more devoted mother care and fight for her child or a strong baby fight for his life. Prayers for peace and comfort at this time and always. I hope you have angels to bear you up.

Love, your blogosphere SoCal friend.

Jennifer said...

Those pictures are so sweet. I hope you find comfort and peace during this difficult time. My prayers are with you.

Spencer & Suzy said...

Can't help but get emotional looking at these sweet pictures of your kids with their little brother. Our prayers have been with your family over the past few months, and we'll certainly keep them coming. We have greatly admired your strength and faith through this whole experience. What great miracles you have experienced with Baby Aaron, thank you so much for sharing them with us.

Becky said...

I am so so sorry for your loss. That scripture you quoted above was perfect. My sister Erin, lost her baby Julia, born 24 weeks, after she lived for 6 weeks last February. These pictures brought back so many memories. You are an amazing family and I hope you can all be comforted now and in the months to come and beyond. Lots of love from the Williams family

Your blog has been on my reader and I have watched your strength as not just a Mother, but also as a family. Your son has touched many lives you will never know and your testimonies you have shared have strengthened those of ours that perhaps were lacking. Thank you for sharing your journey of this amazing baby who is destined to do more precious work on the other side. Hold tight to the gospel as you have done and I will continue to pray for your family and for strength and peace to fill your hearts.
