Aaron Fulton
(1991-2005)
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Aaron Fulton who was born in Wheatridge, Colorado on January 13, 1991 and passed away on March 07, 2005 at the age of 14. We will remember him forever. 

Aaron touched many hearts in his short 14 years.  It is truly amazing that such an inspiring young man could accomplish so much in so little time.  Aaron was an eighth grader at Forsyth Middle School, served as their class president, and carried straight A's.  He participated in numerous sports:  football, wrestling, basketball, and track.  He was very active in 4-H, served as president of the club.  Juicy Fruit was his colt to maturity project.  There wasn't anything that he couldn't succeed at.  

Aaron's beautiful smile, scrumptious curls, and thrilling laugh will be missed by all.  Aaron was the oldest of 6 children.



If I Knew

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time
that I would see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.
If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.
If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.
If I knew it would be the last time 
I would be there to share your day,
well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance 
to make everything just right.
There will always be another day to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance to say our "Anything I can do?"
But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget.
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.
So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day,
That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish.
So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them and that you'll always hold them dear
Take time to say "I'm sorry, " "Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.

(As Aaron's mom, I include this to remind you all, to hug those that you love and take time to say "I love you.")

Speak His Name

Don’t be afraid to speak his name,
I know things aren’t the same.
He lives in my heart, soul and mind,
It’s a kind of peace I find.
You and I have memories we share,
Don’t hide them, it’s not fair.
So don’t let silence become a game,
That would be such a shame.
I love it when we reminisce,
The days that I still miss.
Don’t be afraid that I might cry,
Don’t make me say good-bye.
When we talk about the past,
It helps make the memories last.
So be my friend so dear,
End the silence that I fear!

We did not know that morning, that God would call your name.

In life we loved you dearly, and in death it is still the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone;

For part of us went with you the day God called you home.

You left us full of memories and thoughts of you deep inside.

Although we can no longer see you, we feel you always by our side.

Even though our chain is broken and nothing seems the same;

Someday, God will call on us and the take away the pain.

His legacy
Life Without Aaron  
Is there a feeling of emptiness that you can't explain.  That HORRIFIC ache in your heart that causes a sharp sensation through your whole body.

That is life without Aaron...

No words can describe the overwhelming longing, no matter how hard you try.  How can you describe something so painful as losing your own child, your own flesh and blood, having to face life without him everyday from here on out.  Having to take every breath knowing you won't see him when you get home, no more hugs,  no more "I love you."  Not from him...

That is life without Aaron...

Time passes by so quickly, yet you want it to stand still.  Without warning, you find yourself having to catch up to the rest of the world, yet wanting to stay.  Knowing if you proceed with time, you leave him behind.  No one understands.  

That is life without Aaron...

Do you find yourself doing a simple task and feel your eyes well up with tears?  Tears trickle down your cheeks.  For a moment, you didn't realize, was I thinking of him?

That is life without Aaron...

Do you feel like you can't talk to anyone about it.. all they can think to say is, things will get better, you just need to move on.  Or, I know how your feel!

That is life without Aaron...

Or, you should feel better knowing that he is in heaven.  True, he is in Heaven, with God.  But those words don't take away the agonizing pain left in my heart.  

That is life without Aaron...

Or, those people who just don't say anything at all, perhaps not knowing what to say.  None the less, that is just as painful.

That is life without Aaron...

Perhaps the worst fear of all, people forgetting how amazing he was.  Forgetting that he lived.  What a great big brother he was.  What a wonderful son he was.  How caring he was to others.  His heart warming smile.  His sparkling brown eyes.  His scrumptious curls.  His dazzling personality.  His abiltity to succeed at all he did.  The degree of potential that this child had to offer our world was beyond our imagination...

That is life without Aaron...

Time?  Time can't heal!  Time can only mend our shattered hearts.  For me to heal would be to forget.  I am not willing to forget!  A part of me died the night Aaron passed, March 7, 7:59 p.m., 2005.  The hole in my heart will be forever visible.  

That is life without Aaron...

It is hard to define a legacy for someone so young, yet He taught us all so much.  Touched so many lives.  To mourn him does not mean that we need to wallow in the past, only means that we will remember HIM.  To miss him does not mean that we won't or can't build new relationships, it only means that HE will remain forever in our hearts.  Not all tears bring sadness, some tears may bring memories.  

He is my child, my first child, and I will love him now and forever.  To close my eyes for a moment and picture him, brings a smile.  How can you not smile when you think of my Aaron?  

My pain is deep, but I find comfort in knowing that he is with me, and that I will see him again!

This is my life without Aaron!
