I lost a very good friend this past week..... / by Marissa Rauch

This past week we lost one of the good ones.  My great friend and Godfather to my daughter passed away.  We all have blood family, and then we have the families that we make for ourselves.  Aaron and his husband Gary became important family members.  They have been ever present in our lives especially since adopting Daniela.  We celebrated holidays and many other occasions together.  Aaron had the ability to make every occasion a celebration whether it was a pumpkin carving party, a crafts party or a fireworks party.  He put his heart and soul into everything.  He as pure love.  There has been such an outpouring of support and love from all of those who he came across in life.  He touched to many.  We love him and will miss him so much...
