the Mckin family so sorry for the your loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you during this time.
I am so sorry to hear that Aaron has passed on. He was a special friend to my late Mom, Catherine Ellison who lived in Fayetteville at the time. He was a kind, decent man who will always be from a special time in my life. I will never forget the first time I met him at the mall with my Mom who he had taken a liking to. She was a widow and he made her smile. I remember when he would stop by and he gave us a tour of various places we had never been since we had moved from Long Island ..NY to TN. He was very generous and holds a special place in my heart. May he rest in eternal peace with the lord and I’m sure he is happy to be rejoined with his grandson Nicholas whom I had the pleasure to meet and get to know for a little while.
Sincerely…Lois Ellison Donovan and family

I love you and miss you a bunch. I can’t wait to get to heaven to see you someday. I love you.
