Today it is eight months since Aaron passed away. In a week and a half it's a year since Noah passed away. A year! Where did that year go!? It's hard to believe it and it gets harder every day to live without them.
For Aaron's funeral Jalen and I put together some photos from Aaron's life to music, so we could play it in the foyer while people were coming in. It was so hard to quickly come up with some songs but we knew we had to choose an Oasis one as they were Aaron's favourite band. We chose the song 'Perfect' because the message is what Aaron always wanted his students to remember - that they should believe in themselves no matter what. The last song we chose - 'Without You' was popular at the time and was exactly how we were feeling - that we couldn't live without him.
Thank you to Kim who helped me convert the clip out so I can finally share it on here. It's not great quality, but I wanted to share it on here so the boys can watch it whenever they want. It's quite long but has some great photos from Aaron's early years (when the boys say he looks like a girl :) and lots with his students from school.
