I know Aaron is in Heaven.

Thank you God the Father - Creator of Heaven and Earth - for all things. Thank you my King Jesus Christ for your intercessions. Thank you Mother Mary for your healing and pulling me out of my despair. Thank you to All the Angels and Saints for your response when I called out to God and the Heavenly Hosts. "On the day I called, you answered me; and made me bold with Strength in my Soul." Psalm 138:3

For the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory are Yours, Now and Forever. Amen.
