And then there were four

We are home from our holiday down at St Helens early unfortunately because my heart is breaking as Aaron passed away after 9 pm last night. I'm numb and feel physically sick and can't believe it.   It looks like he suffered a heart attack.  I know his heart was so sad after losing Noah and I'm sure that had something to do with it, but I also know that in many ways he was prepared to go now and has hard as it is to believe, it was his time to go.

My family was with me and thank goodness they were because I needed them last night, more than I've needed anything before.  They gave me so much strength and without them there I know it would've been so much worse.

This is one of the last photos that I took of him, which was taken the day before he passed away. 

 I know that they say that you aren't given anymore than you can handle, but right now I think I'm at my limit.   After losing Noah less than four months ago and now losing my best friend, eternal companion and love of my life I'm so grateful for my three boys who I love so much, who give me strength to keep going and look ahead to the day when we will be together with Noah and Aaron again. All I can think of is them hugging and talking and running and even side stepping together.  Oh how wonderful their reunion must've been.

I love you Aaron and I wish you were here just for one more day, to let you know just how much.

  5. Aaron is truly a KING amongst men.
    I will miss his jokes, and especially the way he loved family.
    Our family teas are going to be very quiet now, without his wisecracks.
    I know he loved you and the boys beyond description.
    I will miss his enthusiasm for everything he loved, especially the mighty HAWKS!!!!!
    I am here for you and the boys Honey, just here beside you, just reach out.
    Love Mum.

  8. I'm not even going to try to pretend to know what to say, or assume how you feel, or any of it. But I know one thing for sure is that he knew every single day how lucky he was, and was humble enough to acknowledge how incredibly loved and treasured he is as a man, husband, father, teacher, friend. To have seen him in his glory in all of those roles is an honour.

    I love you, and the boys, so so much, and I will be there any time you need for anything. I will abide with you in your sorrow, and do everything I can to honour his memory.

    Their are no words in imagining their reunion. Wow. xo

  9. I think I was going to say "Their reunion must have been.....". He would be laughing at me for making such a nasty grammatical mistake right now. "You call yourself a grammar nazi! That's just embarrassing"

  16. Aaron was such a wonderful example of a devoted husband and father. Everyone that knew him loved him, he had a way of making everyone feel included and loved. Thank goodness for family & friends who love us & are there when we need them. We love you & our prayers are for you and Jalen, Harri & Kobe at this most difficult time in your lives xxx

    I don't know how you will, but I know that you will. With the love and support of family and a community. One teeny moment at a time.

  21. Lisa we were phoned this morning by roz with your heart breaking news here in QLD. We all were so Sad and our hearts and prayers went out to you and the boys. You are a great inspiration to me as I have watched your family grow at Punchbowl primary and your dedication as such a wonderful mum and wife. I often read your blogs and they are full of wonderful stories and now memories for you all. Aaron was a lovely man always with a wonderful smile on his face. I can not imagine the pain your heart must be in but he has Noah to hold his hand and watch over you and the boys now. Keana has been very worried about Harri and asks you pass on her love and prayers to him. All our luv To you, jalen,Harri and Kobe from Ellie,Simon,Connor,Pako,Keana,Chad and Mia xx

    SO sorry.

  24. Lisa I cannot express how much I feel for you and your boys right now. All I've been thinking about is Aaron's reunion with his handsome beautiful son Noah! My heart breaks for you, how blessed we are to KNOW families are together forever.

  26. I haven't met you and your family but I feel as though I have from reading your blog. I cannot comprehend how difficult this must be for you all, and as many others have said, there are no words that can really help. All I can do is send my love to you and the boys, and smile picturing how tightly Noah and Aaron have their arms wrapped around each other now.

  27. Hello Lisa,
    I just learned about you yesterday from a FB friend. I was reading about you knowing what had happened to Aaron. I was crying the whole time, but was at the same time so in awe by the spirit that comes forth through the pages of this blog. It is a spirit of love, perseverance, hope against all odds, wisdom, joy and strength. I am so inspired by you and your journey... right now I am brokenhearted for you and the tears are flowing... I pray that you find strength day by day and that the love will be greater than the loss. With love,
    maja

  28. I came to your blog from seven cherubs blog..I really hope you don't mind me commenting. I just felt compelled to tell you how sorry I am. You are living a nightmare at the moment and it is so unfair...but you have 3 gorgeous boys who are also living that nightmare and how lucky they are to have you. You can all be strong for each other. Huge hugs here from the UK. xx

  29. sending you love and prayers at this time. I can't begin to imagine the depth of your loss, it's just so tragic and sudden and seems so unfair after everything you've been through.
    I will keep you and your family in my prayers and pray for strength and comfort in the days ahead.

  31. Hi Lisa,
    We don't know each other, but I have come to love your family through your lovely blog and by hearing so much about you all. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I can't even imagine how you are feeling, but just know that you are surrounded by the most amazing people, especially your boys, who will be there for you, comfort you, and love you. Aaron is so lucky to have you as a wife. I know that both he and Noah are smiling down and watching over you. I'll be thinking about you and our family <3

  32. I have no words to make you feel any better. But please know, my heart breaks for you, I am crying for you family. However, at the same time, I am picturing a daddy reuniting with his son, and that is all I can hold on to, to make any sense of this. Much love to you all xx

  33. i am so so sorry, from a stranger reading your blog for the first time tonight, it's very obvious how much you loved each other and your family. he will always be in your heart, will forever live on in your memories and will be by your side in spirit when you need him to be holding your hand silently.

    tonight i will hug my husband tighter and be grateful for him because tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone.

    sending much love & light.

    you are not alone.

  36. Mr king.
    Was a great teacher. He always had a smile apon his face and could bring a smile to anyone's face. He taught us more than What we needed to learn and always had time to talk if something was wrong. It's going to be hard back a school knowing that he will not be their for my last year and not to have him around making jokes and being their to cheer on the hawks, brag about Tamar winning, keeping is prefects on task and calling me a squirrell. I can say I will miss him heaps and will have a great memory of knowing him.
    Sincerely Jess.

  40. Lisa, I cannot even properly express how much I feel for you and your family at the moment. You are an amazingly strong woman and you are trusted enough to bare these trials. How joyous the reunion would have been between Aaron and Noah. I am thinking and praying for you and your boys. May Heavenly Father help you through this hardest trial of all. Your love is for Eternity. Always remember that.

  41. Today at 1.00pm a group of current a ex students went to kmhs where mr king taught. We had flowers and balloons, and had our own minute of silence for mr king. We left the flowers under the tree in the car park. This was organized over Facebook by one person. Which had many people affected who decided to join. Rest in peace mr king.

  72. Dear Lisa. I am Becky's and Jenny's aunt. I had read Noah's blog after he had passed, as Becky had written about him in her blog. I know how wonderful you all were to her and her family sending wonderful gifts to them and to Ben. I had sent you a note on Noah's blog after his passing. The stories that your sons wrote for him were beautiful. He was certainly a beautiful spirit. Today I was on Becky's blog and just learned of your husband Aaron's passing. I just can't believe that such a young man was taken from you and your wonderful family, and to think that you were on holiday to enjoy being together and having some fun times. My heart goes out to you and your beautiful family, and I pray that you will have the strength and courage to get through each day. God does give us the strength we need when we need it. As others have mentioned in their comments, be gentle with yourself. My David is also in heaven, and I'm sure that he, Ben, Noah, and Aaron are watching down on us and holding us in prayer. I'm sending you lots of love and hugs from Massachusetts and will keep you and your family in my prayers. Peace be with all of you.

  77. Incredibly touched by the stories and images so lovingly woven into each of your posts. Incredibly saddened that a family already so wise and aware of the power of love has been sent yet another unfathomable trial.
    Perhaps, the lesson, is for the rest of us. I will hold my children tighter and I will see the joy that resides in the everyday and I hope that my time on earth is as meaningful as your two "Kings". You probably didn't set out to be an inspiration but you are. I will think of you and not sweat the small stuff.
    This must be the most surreal time for you and your boys. I know your Kings will shine a torch and give you comfort. You have two Angels and your boys have you, an earthbound angel to guide and light their path. When a heart so big and full of love & loss can just take no more?!!
    Your words and images have proven to be so instrumental in helping others. I hope the universe/ blogiverse returns the favour to you ten fold. You are not alone.
    Love and Light

  78. You don't know me Lisa, but it seems I know you already through the incredible sad but beautifully written stories on your blog. My daughter posted a message on facebook this morning, which I opened and 3 hours later with my tears streaming down my face I rang her and asked if Aaron and her partner were colleagues. That was not the case, but she said she had known Noah and met you both in the hospital where she is a nurse. We talked about your other boys and she told me this story how Kobe plugged up the sink in the boys' toilet with lots of toilet paper, which subsequently flooded the hallway. She remembered how they all burst out laughing and that you couldn't help joining in. I hope this will bring a smile to your face. Lisa I don't know how you will manage this time, without Aaron next to you to share the burden of your loss, but I can see that you are no ordinary woman and that the people you are surrounded with will help you as much as possible. Your three boys will need you more than ever, concentrate on them, your blog entries and your amazing photography.
    When I studied to become a teacher, one of my special subjects was children with severe disabilities. One of the outcomes of that study was that these children have so much love to give and bring out the best in people who are receptive for such love. Well 43 years later and I see how true this is, by just reading your stories. I feel privileged to be allowed to get a glimpse of it. You are and will be an inspiration to many people, who will get strength from you. At the moment you yourself will need all the care and love there is. I am thinking of you and your beautiful boys.

  80. I feel some of your pain as I lost my husband suddenly almost 2 years ago. But the pain of losing two of your family I can't even begin to imagine. I just want you to know you are not alone in your pain and even though it will feel like you can't even breathe each day will get easier. I am still struggling and even though every day living is easier than it was the pain of my loss is still there, I got through with the help of my friends and family. I can see that you have many people to surround you with love and help. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your boys xxxx

  82. Lisa we have never met but I feel I know you. Having worked with Aaron for a couple of years it was very obvious to everyone the pride and love he had for you and the boys. His enthusiasm for life was inspiring. The courage, strength and love you all had at the difficult time when you lost Noah was I am sure comforting. Now you have to face this challenge and loss of another love of your life, which I am sure will do in time with the memory of your lives together and knowing the love he had and will continue to have for yourself and the boys. Another cheeky monkey in heaven under Gods care to guide you and love you from afar until you are again. My heart is sad with the news and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. You have all been and will continue to be the most courageous and inspirational family I have known. Take care, with much love Kate. x

I am so sad reading your story and wish you all the best for the future, your boys are very lucky to have such an amazing mother. Sending you cyber hugs...be gentle on yourself over the coming months and allow your body and mind to grieve and adjust. My thoughts and prayers, Emma.

  84. Mr King.
    you gave me all the strength i needed in such hard times, even if it meant just giving me silly nick names (TRizzy, Ritcho, Swifty..) or a smile.
    I had my 16th birthday last year, and thanks to you i got to spend it in Melbourne with all my friends at the school football trip.
    My family were having a tough time, and you were there to help.
    Thank You. Thank you for giving me days i will never forget, and the best 4 years at high school anyone could have asked for.
    Noah inspired me, you inspired me, you're whole family are truely incredible.

    Lisa, Jalen, Harri and Kobe, i am so very sorry.

  90. Wow. I am awake again for the second night in a row, I was up last night crying and an still up crying now. Mr king was a great teacher and an even better friend. He will always be an Inspiration to me and everyone he affected. School won't be the same with out you this year, I'm in year ten and was looking forward to the footy trip that mr king always attended. I'm pretty sure most people who went each year before didn't really care about the football but watching him come up with things and make jokes, sharing memories with people. It's going to be tough knowing that kingly won't be there to talk to at lunch times, go around at school carnivals saying here comes the squirrell, walking a around the school having him ask me if I have and nuts and doing our "squirrell" talk. I remember spending most lunch tims with him, rhiannon and mrs miller having A chat, But its not going to be the same. In grade 7 when i first met Him i thought wow he is one awesome teacher, but over the years he has become a great friend.

  91. I also believe you arn't given more than you can handle, but you will be the judge of that. You will handle this in your way and that will be the right way for you. I hope you are surrounded by love. I am sending mine, Belinda

  92. My heart is full of such sorrow for you and your boys lisa. I didn't know you very well but I do not believe to even attempt to understand Gods plan in taking Aaron from you so soon after losing Noah but I feel that Aaron is a fantastic role model for all dad's out there. I know he wouldn't probably agree being such a humble soul but both you and Aaron's unwavering faith in god and family is remarkable. I cannot say anything to heal your immense pain but I can send you all my love and every bit of strength I have. May god hold you and your boys in his arms and may you feel his comfort all day and night long xxx

  93. I don't know you at all, I stumbled across your blog just before Noah died. I can't believe what I've just read, my heart just dropped and I can't stop the tears. I'll be praying for you and your beautiful boys, I know you don't feel like you have the strength but you will find a way. I'll keep following your blog, as I have for a while now, so if you think of anything AT ALL a 23 year old girl living in Melbourne could do to help, just put the word out.
    God Bless.

  97. Wow .... you bought tears to my eyes. Not just of sadness, but you have single handedly shown me personally, that no matter what love like you have never loved and live like never before. Lisa King you are my inspiration x

  98. I was brought to your blog from another...I had not read your son's story before this evening and have sat here in tears reading of Noah and your husband. I could not leave without telling you that my heart is broken for you, but I am also in awe of the love and strength you display. May you have some peace knowing that your loves are with each other though you would rather them all be with you.

  99. I know no words can help but I wonder whether a stranger who's also crying for your loss can make you feel less alone in your grief. I hope so. Sending loads of love and strength. Life is so strange.

  105. What an amazingly strong woman you are. I don't know you but my heart breaks for you because of the challenges our Lord has sent to you over the last few months. I cannot imagine what you're feeling at this time but you are obviously finding guidance from His strong hand through this traumatic experience. Please go on being a strong woman for your family and your friends, even though you may feel you are in your darkest hours. Remember Ecclesiastes 3:1-18.

  110. I have just come across your blog and I sit here in tears reading the very first post. My heart breaks for you and your 3 precious sons. Life isn't meant to be this cruel surely. I wish there was something I could say or do that would help but there isn't. I will just simply say how very, very sorry I am for everything you have gone through and will continue to go through. My heart goes out to you and your boys. I know that you have very special stars shining brightly in the night sky, your two guardian angels watching over you all. Stay strong and take care love and hugs to you all

  117. I believe that at times, we are given MORE than we can handle so that the ATONEMENT can really take full effect in our lives. I'm so sorry for your heart ache and loss. I pray that you find peace and comfort in the knowledge of ETERNAL FAMILIES. The Savior loves you and your family, and I hope you feel him especially close at this time. Thank you for sharing your sweet family and remarkable strength.

  120. I am so sorry for your loss, losing a husband and a son within months of each other is truly a cross nobody should have to bear.
    You are so strong and amazing.
    Keep on sharing your story and I know God will get you through.
    prayers and love go out to you and your 3 boys.

  121. You don't even know me. But I saw a stack of shirts on "make it perfect" and wanted to know where they had come from. Here I am over an hour later after reading through so many of your families tender moments in tears. I'm so grateful that you are not without the gospel in your life, to know that this is not the end. My heart truly goes out to you and your boys. I hate it when I hear it but my husband always tells my "this is but a moment". I hope the moments you've had together will one day soon replace the ones of grief. - Angel

  122. A friend sent me to your blog, and I've been reading the story of what you went through a year ago. It's very tender to me because I lost my husband a little over three weeks ago to a heart problem too. I recognize your feelings because I'm feeling them now. I'm so thankful for the gospel and know there's a plan, but it's still really hard at times. I look forward to reading more of your blog as I can only imagine where I'll be a year from now. Prayers and hugs to your family.
