Big Cuz, I'm so sorry to hear about your passing. You were a great son, brother, husband, and father. Something we all try to inspire to be in life. I can remember seeing you at my son's high school football games a couple years ago. You had that darn big smile on your face and came speed walking over screaming out loud Cuz Cuz. We hugged, we laughed, and then we started reminiscing about the good old days. I can remember that story we were laughing about. How you and that darn Choo Choo would come down to my grandmothers house to play with Pooh and I. And you two would take our bikes and had us standing around and chasing y'all for hours waiting to ride them bikes lol. I can still see your face cracking up laughing about that when I brung that memory up. Aaron We love you and you will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Cuz !!! To Gladys and the rest of the family. I send my love and will keep all of you in my prayers through these painful times. Gladys, you have been a cornerstone and a rock for a lot of us in the family who have dealt with difficult times. Your beautiful soul has always held a special place in my heart, for the many things you have done. Always know Gladys, we will be their to have your back, like you have always had ours !

Big Cuz, I'm so sorry to hear about your passing. I'm still in disbelief and shock. I remember as kids, when you and Choo Choo would come down my grandmothers to play with Pooh and I. You two would take our bikes and not give them back to us, until it was time for y'all two to go home. Needless to say it was along wait pooh and I had lol. You and I would laugh about that story all the time when I would see you at my sons football games at the high school. I can still see you smiling, screaming out loud, and giving me a hug every time I saw you. You grew to be such a amazing man in life. How many of us can say that we were a wonderful father, husband, and son in life. You earned all them titles cuz. You surely will be missed. To Gladys and the rest of the family. I'm beyond sorry for the loss of Aaron. Gladys you have always been one of the cornerstones of the family. Your beautiful soul has helped so many of us out over the years and I want to thank you for all you have done. Aaron Rest In Peace Cuz !!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Aaron, AKA, Clubber Lang. For those of you who don't know the reference. He was the boxer in Rocky 111. I remember when we were kids, Clubber , Jamie Pannell, Nelson Brown, Choo Choo, Anthony, and myself played a game where you would hide a belt, and whoever found it got to whip everybody until they made it back to the base. Clubber whipped me so bad one time, I begged him to stop. We all laughed at the time, but the truth be known, it hurt like the dickens. Anthony brought that game from New York. I will never forget that, nor will I e ever forget you. I am so glad to be able to say that you were my friend. You were a great role model for your girls. I love you bro. Wood Doctor

Aaron, prayers on your behalf and to your family. Your legacy as a family man and father was "2nd to none" and your spirit and grace will always live on in your daughters of which I KNOW you are eternally proud. I am sad that we did not get the chance to know each other better in adulthood and but I am still proud to have known you and your family. Rest easy - until we meet again.
