Rob --

We're the ones who have been honored by your sharing of your journey through Aaron's illness and release. I think you've broken our hearts and at the same time healed them again, just by telling the story as it unfolded, not knowing the end but opening yourself to every question and hope and fear and sorrow.

It looks like you'll have the piper you need. Thanks to our friends for finding and referring them. That music will also break the heart and at the same time heal it, and if anything can be heard to high heaven, it's the pipes.

My hear goes out to you and your family. I am still at a loss for words that Aaron died.
My thoughts and prayers go to you and your family. Words seem to elude me at this time.


And now I bid unto all, farewell. I soon go to rest in the paradise of God, until my spirit and my body shall again reunite, and I am brought forth triumphant through the air, to meet you before the pleasing bar fo the great Jehovah, the Eternal Judge of both quick and dead. Amen.

Moroni 10:34

I found my piper. He is the official piper for the Columbia Police Department here in town. Thanks to all who offered help. I knew some folks here would know how to locate someone. I have posted Aaron's obituary on the Caring Bridge website in tonights entry.

Dawn and I are doing ok. Today we went to the funeral home and made the arrangements. This was a tuffy, but my wife said a prayer before arriving and God was with us. He has not yet failed to provide is with strength. Strength had to come in abundance last night as I struggled with the end of the first day without Aaron in it. Tonight though I am rather tired. So I'm signing off for a while. God bless you all.

The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

Rob,
I want you to know that although we never have "met" I feel like we are all an extended family here at CR. You and Dawn are always in my thoughts, and that I will be with you and your family in prayer and spirit during the next few days. I cannot imagine how difficult this has been on you and it will not get easier any time soon...but we will always be here for you if you need any support or just to vent!
We really do care about you all!
Barbara

Rob,
Although we have had VERY antagonistic relationship here on the boards, I have been behind you on this from your first posting. I followed the Caring Bridge posts daily until my computer went down this spring.
So I was very shocked when I finally got it back to find how things were turning out. Words cannot express the depth of my sympathy for you and your wife at this time. Hold on to each other and know that we are all here for you.

I had to go cry for awhile after reading this...I still can't control the tears. I kept my distance through the whole ordeal, somehow feeling I was intruding. And so I lent my support through other means.

May the Creator shelter him close, and bring him a swift pony to bring him home.

Not forgetting, Rob. Thinking of you and your family today.

If I can be any help when you decide you want to write your journey, please consider me completely at your service.

I just found the link to Aaron's story tonight and it's very hard reading due to constant tears from the emotional impact of what I'm reading. It's heartbreaking that this should ever happen to a child but I think the writing of the journal was catharctic for Rob and the sharing of such pain and hope is something that people need to be aware of. As he said in the journal there is so much anger, hatred and fighting in the world that it's a shame it takes something like cancer to bring people together and help each other as we should.

It's a remarkable story of love, faith and kindness. I'm only on page 5 of the journal and I want to thank Rob and Dawn for sharing their story with us. We know that Aaron is with God now and that's about as good as a prayer can get really. Aaron's needs are being met in every way by a loving God, so my grief is for his family and friends that have been through so much.

There is no question that Aaron is very much loved and will be missed. May God be good to Rob, Dawn, Michael and the rest of their extended family & friends. May He give peace and laughter to you soon as He helps heal the wounds that no family should ever endure.

I just came back on CR to read this and I don't know what to say. Having a little guy myself, I'm terrified to imagine what you have gone through and too chicken to read your account.

God bless you, your wife, your family and all the friends of Aaron.

Some mysteries are so far beyond understanding they cannot even be questioned.

May you always feel the strong arms of your Heavenly Father.
May you never be without the shoulder of an earthly friend.
And May your memories be vivd and sweet.

My heart pours out to you.

Elspeth
