Dear Cory,  I'm sorry for your loss and the ache it leaves in your heart. And I'm sorry your little son won't get to know your dad. I know Aaron brought a lot of joy to his grandpa. I'm in California now, but I plan to arrive back to Richwood tomorrow. Call me if you need me!  Love and Prayers,
~Nejla and Gregg
