Worldwide Candle Memorial Wall Postings

On Sunday night, we lit our candle in memory of our son, Sean Joseph Aycock, who passed from cancer nineteen years ago at age twenty-nine.  Those twenty-nine years were not nearly long enough and those nineteen years have been an eternity.  We also lit our candle in memory of the young man who was to be our son-in-law, James Robert Landry, who passed two years ago from a severe asthma attack, also at age twenty-nine.  We love y'all and miss y'all every moment of every day.  Love, Mom

To Uncle R.J., I find it so interesting how I don’t realize that another year has passed until I write to you like this. Time flows by without a notice. The fact that I always imagine what life would have been like with you here completely fascinates me. Even though it’s speculation and pure fantasy, the thought of a world with you still living in it is warmer. I cherish our memories; I snatch them with a grip, lock them with a key , and hug them closely. And I light this candle. You were the closest thing I have ever had to an actual older brother and there are moments when I question myself. If you were still here, breathing life everyday, what would I do? Would I try to be like you? Would I rush to you in need of advice? Could I trust you or would you allow me to? Would you be my support? Would we be there for each other? The answers are left unanswered, but not unknown. For I actually believe that we both would say “yes” to every single one of my questions. I love you so much and when I see you again, I can’t wait to hear your actual answers in person. Then we could actually live a life that I imagine at night and see in my daydreams. It will be better than heavenly. Love always, from your nephew, Ke’Ron H.
