  29. The impact one has on those they touch is not measured in the time they have here but rather the lives we have changed, the thoughts we have provoked, the smiles we have drawn and the hearts we have touched. Aaden’s impact was great. My heart aches for you. My daughter, Victoria, has forever been touched by your beautiful little boy. May time bring all those beautiful Aden memories to the front of your hearts. Much love Lisa
