On behalf of my husband
« on: May 14, 2013, 03:04:42 AM »
I'm sorry if I confused or concerned anyone with using Aaron's profile instead of my own (colockumelkwife) but he is permanently logged in and I didn't have the heart to log him off.  This is his wife.

I can never properly express my absolute indebtedness to everyone on this forum who has shown my husband so much love, support and honor.

When I haven't been able to sleep these last 3 weeks I come on to the forum and read all the wonderful things that have been said and done for him.  It brings me some joy amidst all of the pain to see all of you, whom most neither I nor Aaron will ever get the chance to meet, write such beautiful things about my favorite person.  (That was my nickname for him: Favorite).

I know many of you have expressed regret at not being able to meet him in person.  Those that did not have that opportunity I can tell you, as I knew him best, that he was the most amazing, passionate, loving and forthright man I have ever known.  There will never be another Aaron.

I feel so unworthy of all of your generosity, but I do know that my husband earned every bit of honor and love that has come from all of you wonderful people.  On behalf of Aaron, myself and our children, I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You.

I wish I knew other words.  I wish I had the eloquence to express my gratitude in a more fitting manner.  Thank you seems so trivial.  We use it when someone holds a door open for us, or when the cashier gives us our change back.  I wish I could bottle a portion of my appreciation to send to each one of you so that you could each feel how much I truly mean it when I say "thank you."

I cherish every prayer and thought that has been sent on my husband's behalf to my children and I and I am happy to say that I may even get the chance to meet a few of you as I will be moving back to Washington soon.  It is where I feel most connected to him. 

To all of Hunt-Wa:

May God bless you as graciously as He has my family and I.

Breaks my heart for you and the kids.  Big hug from all of us.  Please, if you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to ask us.  And I have to disagree with you, you have plenty of eloquence.  God bless you and those two little ones.   :'(

No need to thank hunt-wa we are a huge family here and it's the least we can do for Aaron and you're family. God bless you and the little one's.

With as much as you have to go through, nobody here will take "thank you" lightly or not see it as enough. Thank you for coming here to make a post of any kind. I hope you can find some peace and rest of some kind soon.

We are here for you Becky.   My eyes might be a little blurred from tears, but we are here.   You got me all choked up, I cant even type.   The Kikendalls, Selah and Huntwa have open arms for you anytime.   You  my Dear, owe us nothing.  I am going to have to refer back to Machias post.  Hugs and thankyous from all of us.

It seems to me that just getting on here and writing what you did would be no easy task for you right now. That means a lot to us. As said before. If you ever need anything, please ask. We will do our best to help out in any way we can.

You and your family are in our prayers for Peace,Comfort,and Healing. I pray that God blesses you and your family many times over.

Not much more to be said than what's already been said here. May God bless you and your family. We're always here, just stop in and say hello now and then.  Aaron was a good man.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

It was a pleasure knowing "Colock" and it's a pleasure meeting you. Welcome to our forum. :hello:
