Thank you all for your beautiful words of comfort!  

Friday, 6 March 2009

Thank you everyone for your support, for the messages/cards/e-mails/comments sent in honour of Aaron. I gained so much strength from your words.

I sent a big red heart balloon up to Aaron yesterday (red was his favourite colour).

We had a balloon release on the day we celebrated his life, it was incredible. No-one wore black, and we didn’t have flowers, we had balloons, and seeing literally hundreds of balloons of all his favourite characters, colours and of course dolphins float up into the sky, was breath taking. I’m sure some people though it was a little mad, with his white horse drawn carriage, his casket hand painted with dolphins, everyone in their brightest clothes and craziest hats (another thing he loved…mad hats), and dozens of cars following with balloons hanging out the windows…but he would have loved that. We even finished the night with fireworks, a huge dolphin shaped Aaron which stopped traffic and caused chaos!!! Perfect.

And for those of you who didn’t know Aaron you are right, he is an incredible child, and an amazing spirit.

I don’t know if you all know but I did write a book about Aaron and our lives together, the fights, the struggles, the love, the laughter, the madness!!!

It started off as just me sitting at the computer for hours on end because I couldn't sleep and writing everything down, it was as if I was terrified to forget the tiniest thing about our lives together..and it just grew, and the more people that read it and were inspired, or laughed, the more I realised it was a way of leaving a legacy for Aaron. He taught us so many lessons, there was a chance for him to teach more and more people.

If you would like to know more about Aaron and what we all went through, then please let me know, I’d be more than happy to send you a copy of Aaron’s book. Although it may be hard to get through in places, I can promise it will still inspire, and still make you laugh in places. Aaron’s spirit shines through and really teaches us all something about love and determination!

You can e-mail me through my profile, I look forward to hearing from you.

Here are a few or Aaron's favourite hats...

The Jester (perfect for Aaron)..not everyone can pull off a hat like this!

AH, not quite a hat...but Aaron tried it on for size anyway!

His absolute favourite..Aaron the Viking, this always drew a few looks as cars pulled along side us!

He even fashioned a few of his own!

A more sophisticated look!

Take care, and thank you again, from the bottom of my heart,

Sal xxx

    Sal! Thank you for sharing the photos and your story. Aaron looks like an absolute party in a pair of pants (or a hat). I would love to read more about him.

    Dearest Sal, Dave ,Jordan, Robyn and Deion,

    Have been thinking of you all lots and lots today, and then saw the lovely photos of dear Aaron on your blog Sal. He blessed so many people in his life and made all of their lives a whole load brighter, including mine of course too!

    Then I thought how really, really chuffed to mint balls he will be to see how everyone is getting on with stuff, awesome exam results, basketball, chambers and even salsa!! Won't he just be so pleased that everyone is doing such cool things?

    I guess that is exactly what dear Aaron would want, don't you think? I reckon that is what you are all doing too, so well done all of you !!!!

    Here’s a special message for Aaron too, as we all know he is still around us ,just a different dimension, so here you go Aaron if Mummy can Salsa ,guess what she has inspired me to learn something too, no not Salsa but belly dancing!!!I can hear him laughing really loudly already well , next Monday night I start, strange but true my friends!!!!! Are you impressed???

    Big, big hugs to you all the oldest belly dancer in Bexhill!!

    Much love Wendy x and Bertie too (woof!)

    I am moved by circumstances of your life and the strength of character you show in the face of it. A lesser person (read me) would have collapsed.
