  16. Dear Shannon and Family,

    Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all of you now and in the time ahead of you.


  17. This is a heartbreaking story I wish I knew him he does look very familiar to me I probably saw him somewhere I just can’t believe good things happen to the best people. You will forever be in our hearts Aaron Miller! Rest in peace knowing you moved lots of people including yourself.

  18. While I never was close to him, Aaron was a part of my memories from elementary, middle, and high school. He was the kid I always passed in the hallways with the crazy hair and happiness glowing from him. We were in Kids For Christ and German Club together. He was a calm person who didn’t think negatively about life, but instead opened his arms to whatever came at him. He managed at the end the day to cheer many people up with his sweet soul. Mr. and Mrs. Miller, family, and Kaitlyn, I am sorry for your loss and I pray that you all may stay strong. He is watching over all of you now and will always be there to continue to find the light in the darkness, just as he did in his life on Earth. God bless.

  19. To the Miller family, Such a loss. Aaron was a student in my algebra class this year. He was a wonderful wonderful young man. Prayers for your family.

  20. Mr & mrs. Miller im am so very sorry for your loss and i cant imagine how much pain youre going through right now i hope in time itll get easier your son was a very amazing ,sweet , kind , funny and caring person who helped me through alot of things in life and i cant thank him enough ….i cant belive hes really gone…when i first started highschool i always saw Aaron in the halls smiling and i thought of him as such a great person who always had a huge smile on his face and really amazing hair and the day we started talking really impacted my life alot and i dont think ill ever be able to get over the fact that hes gone …i will keep you all in my prayers and as will i Aaron …my condolences ❤

  21. To me Aaron hasn’t passed away I can’t accept that …each of us carry a loving memory of him his spirit is still here on earth watching over his family friends and all of those close to him he may be gone but he will never be forgotten … I still remember when I first him it was in sixth grade, he was really nice sweet and always smiling he never changed… this school year we had biotechnology together I still remember him taking selfies always smiling he was just being him… Sometimes I would see him and his mother at work him and Jackson would start talking nonstop their friendship is too strong that nothing can break it … I’m sorry that such a great soul had to fly away so early but he’s in a better place watching over everyone so let him not see us sad and in tears but in joy and happiness celebrating his amazing persona and cherishing the amazing memories that each of us carry. I love you Aaron! And my deep regards to his family, longtime girlfriend kaitlyn , and close friend Jackson.

  22. Aaron was one of the first students in my guitar program at Richards Middle School. He was always laughing, kind hearted, and friends with everyone. He made a point to learn as much as he could in music class and was an asset to the group. I am so saddened to hear of his passing but I am sure he is making music in heaven. The world will miss his huge smile.

  23. We are heartbroken for your family, I watched Aaron graduate along side Caston and have seen him multiple
    times on his skateboard around Lawrenceville. Aaron inspired my son with his musical talent and
    we will miss him immensely.

    Love & Light be with your family.

  24. Dear Shannon, Mike and family,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I pray that you find comfort. May God give you the strength and courage. My heart is so sad for you family. Please cherish all the wonderful memories you have.
    My deepest sympathy

  25. Words cannot express how much Aaron has impacted my life. As his teacher in 9th grade and then as his teacher in 12th grade, I have continued to watch him grow and blossom into one of the most incredible people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. HE actually has taught ME in so many ways and he will be celebrated for his contributions to the classroom, the school, the community and the world. I’ll never forget what you’ve done for me, Aaron… Rest in peace!

  26. Dear Miller Family, I am so sorry for this devastating loss. My struggle for the right words right now pails in comparison to your struggle at this time. Please know that your “Oakland” family has you in its thoughts and prayers.

  27. Dear Shannon & Mike, Jane & Ken
    Our hearts ache for you! No words can express it. We can’t even begin to imagine the pain and grief. Please know that we love you and we are praying for you daily. You are all near and dear to us.
    All Our Love,
    Artie & Rod

  28. I really sorry, I just hope he’ll be watching over us and laughing. God bless Aaron’s family and his girlfriend. I know it would be such a hard time for all of you. God bless you all.

  29. Aaron was a great person .. Honestly we didn’t talk everyday but those days I would say hi .. That was all it took to know how great he was! God is there for your family I believe it and Aaron is right next to him smiling down !
    God bless your family
    -love Briana McGee

  30. We do not know you but we wanted to tell you that we are thinking of your family and you are in our prayers.
    God bless and keep you strong in your hours of grief.

  31. Dear Miller family and friends: As a Subway customer, I was acquainted with Aaron but didn’t know him well. However, he made such a positive impact on me each time I saw him at work…always smiling and friendly! My two daughters attend CGHS so many afternoons, we saw Aaron walking across the parking lot after school with his gorgeous hair blowing in the breeze! My heart has been heavy with sympathy for you all during this oh so difficult time. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around you and help you find peace.

  32. Ken & Jane, and Shannon & Mike and Family, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We can’t imagine the pain and grief you must be feeling. I just know it has to be overwhelming at this time. Please know that we are praying for all of y’all. May Aaron rest in peace.

  33. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. May God be with you and give you peace, comfort & strength . We will be praying for you.

  34. I didn’t know Aaron on a best friend status, but we did enjoy conversations here and there through out our school years. I met him all the way back in 6th grade and it breaks my heart to see a fellow classmate pass away. He was such an insightful person in class with his questions and comments. My prayers go out to the family, God is your comforter and healer. He will see you through. To Aaron, Rest in Peace.

  35. Ken and Jane, my heart is breaking for you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss, and will be praying for God to somehow bring you some comfort during this difficult time. Please let us know if we can help in any way.

  36. So sorry for your loss. Aaron was a delightful young man. He was in my biology class in 9th grade. Never will forget his politeness, kindness, and respectfulness. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

  37. A few years ago, Aaron came crashing into our house on Halloween, fully dressed as Daisy Duke, wearing short shorts, with his hair in pigtails. We have honestly never laughed harder! What a hilarious, fearless, funny young man! May his family, girlfriend, and many dear friends take solace in the fact that this world got to experience “Aaron Undiluted” for 17 years, and that he had a wondeful time here with them. We will never forget you, Mister Aaron Miller! Nobody that ever met you will! 😉

  38. To the Miller Family and Bugg Family, My out stretched arms and prayers go out to you at this time.

  39. Shannon -we cannot imagine what you are going through right now. My heart breaks for you. Praying for God’s comfort and peace to surround you and the rest of the family and friends.

  40. We are going to miss you stopping in to give us your assessment of the latest album releases, and seeing you glide down the hill on your longboard with that rockstar hair blowing in the wind, and just the way you stopped to think for a minute before you answered any question. What a guy.

  41. Eventhough I never had the chance of getting to know Aaron well, he still made my memories of listening to the same bands and songs and even showing me some artists I’ve never even heard of before my junior year of high school. I always believed that one day, we would get to know each other well and hangout. Aaron was a very awesome person! I am so sorry for your loss Mr. and Mrs. Miller and Kaitlyn! My thoughts and prayers are out to you guys!

  42. I cannot imagine your loss. You have all been on my mind and in my heart.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Love, nancy and Charles davis

  43. Aaron was a thoughtful, kind, and loving person. He was also a very talented and wonderful musician. I had the privilege to play guitar with him many times and to be his friend. He will be missed dearly but he will always be in our hearts. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  44. I will remember Aaron as someone who always had a smile on his face. His bright personality brought comfort to everyone around him. Aaron’s memory will be in our hearts forever. May god bless your family.

  45. To the parents of Aaron Miller, Michael and Shannon Miller,

    I attended your son’s visitation today. I arrived nearly ten minutes early and remained in my car. I watched as people, many young and familiar, walked with lowered heads into the building trying to build up the courage necessary to get out of my vehicle. I doubted whether my tenuous connection to Aaron entitled me to stand among those people who loved him and knew so much better than I. I eventually worked up the nerve and came inside, signed his book, and hid in a corner trying to figure out which of the many grief stricken adults in the room were his parents. You wouldn’t know me any more than I would you. We have never met. We never had cause to. Your son was not actually my student at Central, where I teach math. But I did know your son. I saw him each and every day at the start of 6th period as he would move past me into his English class. He and I would joke about the weather or what crazy way he had his hair pulled up that day. Meaningless banter that seems so much less meaningless now. I wanted to tell you that your son was a beautiful person. That he made me smile even on the darkest days and that, while I could not officially call him one of mine, he was a big part of my day. I wanted to tell you this, but I just couldn’t. Even after I figured out who you were, standing there near the large display of his childhood photos, I couldn’t bring myself to approach you. I didn’t have the nerve to insert myself into what could only be described as the capstone of what has presumably been the worst week of your lives with my silly little memories of a boy you knew so much more completely than I. I spoke to a few of the kids who recognized me, hugged Jackson as he is one of mine, and quietly bowed out. As I drove away I regretted all the things I had not said to you, not because I thought they would have helped you in some way but because they would have helped me. Aaron was sunshine, a big smile, and a light heart. He will be missed. I will miss him. I just want you to know that if your boy could make such a lasting impression on someone he did little more than walk past each afternoon think of all the good he did for those he was close to. He was a treasure and we will treasure him.

  46. Kaitlyn, I am very sorry for your loss. Based on conversations with your mom, I know that Aaron was very close to your family and they loved him as their own. You’re going through a difficult time right now, but always think of Aaron as your guardian angel, in heaven, protecting you. When you feel sad, think of all the great memories you made as a couple and the wonderful memories you (as a couple) shared with your families. You might not believe me right now, but it DOES get easier as time passes. You will never forget and will think of him daily, but as the days go on, you. I’ve never met him, but, through your mom, I know that he was a great young man who had so much for himself. God needed another Angel, and he picked Aaron. Hang in there Kaitlyn. Let me (or your mom) know if there’s anything I can do for you.
    Although, I do not know his family, I’d like to extend my deepest sympathy to them. I pray that God will give you all the fortitude to get through this difficult time.

    When I come to the end of the road
    And the sun has set for me
    I want no rites in a gloom filled room
    Why cry for a soul set free?

    Miss me a little, but not for long
    And not with your head bowed low
    Remember the love that once we shared
    Miss me, but let me go.

    For this is a journey we all must take
    And each must go alone.
    It’s all part of the master plan
    A step on the road to home.

    When you are lonely and sick at heart
    Go to the friends we know.
    Laugh at all the things we used to do
    Miss me, but let me go.

    (Christina Rossetti 1830 – 1894)

  47. Shannon, Mike, Jane and Kenneth,
    It is with great saddness that this page even exists for Aaron as it signifies the need to say goodbye to him at such a young age. I pray that you will find comfort and peace in knowing that Aaron was loved by so many and made such a positive impact to those that knew him.
    Kathy D

  48. Shannon and family,
    I know there is nothing I or anyone could say that could make your son’s loss any easier. I am truly sorry that this has happened and if there is ever anything I could do please let me know. I will be praying for you and your family, hang close to the memories you have with Aaron!

  49. We are so sorry about your loss. May the God of all comfort, continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time. We all look forward to a time, when death will be no more-Rev 21:4. Our prayers are with you.

  50. I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your lovely son. It is truly unthinkable to lose someone so young and vibrant. I hope you find comfort in knowing that you will see him again soon in perfect health here on earth with no fear of losing him again. Isaiah 25:8 God promises to swallow up death forever and wipe away the tears from all those suffering with the sting of death. Our prayers for peace and comfort go out for you and your family at this trying time.

    The Daniels Family

  51. Hi Shannon-
    I came across the article about your son & the accident a few days ago, & I wanted to tell you that you, & your family are in my thoughts & prayers. I have not seen you in many years, but I dated Brandon in high school & we double dated to our prom together! I remember meeting your three little boys when they were about a year old when I was over at your parents house catching up with Brandon one Saturday afternoon years ago. They were such adorable babies!

    I ask God to fill all of you, with His encouragement & that your remember Aaron with joy, & that He give you His peace & comfort.

    Praying for you all, continually.
