  • So sad to hear of Aaron’s death, he was my first cousin, his mother Ruby was my aunt. I only met him once unfortunately. I wish we could have been closer as family.

  • Shirley
    So sorry to hear about the loss of Aaron. Our time together at Bailey’s was always so much fun and he was always willing to do anything asked of him. We had some fun times together in the bare root storage. I remember the giant sandwiches you made for him at lunch while I was eating cheese and bread. And I remember along ago when you guys bought a new vehicle, it was so funny hearing him try to figure why they moved the button for the high beams from the floor up to the blinker lever.
    God Bless, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I am so very sorry to hear about Aaron but I am so Thankful that I got to work with Aaron all those years in bare root storage, he was a great teacher and told it like it is, I can still picture him in the spring moving the semis,

  • I enjoyed working with and talking to Aaron at Baileys. May God comfort Shirley and Patti in their sorrow. May Aaron’s soul rest in peace through the mercy of God.
