Merry Christmas / Miranda Thibodeaux (Family Friend )
DRAGONFLIES/ Mom In Japan,dragonflies represent new light and joy, and are seen as icons of strength, courage,success, and victory. They are reminders that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so. They help you to see through your illusions and allow your own light to shine in a new vision. To some Native Americans some dragonflies are the souls of the dead. In some Asian cultures,they are believed to bring good news from someone far away. Dragonflies are elegant survivors whose symbolism is shared in many cultures around the globe: perseverance,purity,rebirth, and truth.
God's Beautiful Garden / Kyle Fontenot (Friend)
God looked around his Garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain. And knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw your path was difficult, he closed you tired eyes, He whispered to you "Peace be Thine" and gave you wings to fly. When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain, We would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again. You've left us precious memories, your love will be our guide, You live on through your memories, you're always by our side. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you on the day God called you home Close
Smile/ Mary Cholley (Aunt)
I will never forget that perfect smile Aaron had. The day he left us he had a smile on his face which I will always remember. I know he was at peace. I love you so much and miss you. Teresa know that I am always here for you.

To Aaron - You have sent your mom the best gift you could have ever given her. It couldn't have come at a better time.
And to Teresa - WOW!!! That is really awesome. You have been waiting for this for a long time. I know it will never take away your pain but I hope it helps ease it. "Mother", know that you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. In some ways you have been like a mom to me and I just want you to know that I love you like one too!!!!
Thanksgiving Blessing / Teresa McBride (Mom)
The night before Thanksgiving I was having such a hard time. I miss you Aaron so much my heart aches all the time. Well I went to the cemetary to change your candels and I cried so hard that I didn't even recognize my own voice. As I was driving back home I couldn't stop crying and I did't want to come home like that because I don't like seeing your brothers and sisters faces when they see me so upset. I decided to go to the Chapel at our church. There was a man in the Chapel so I was trying not to make to much noise but I couldn't help the sobbing and the tears. This wonderful man got up and brought me a box of kleneex. He asked mee if I was O.K. and all I could do was shake my head yes. I think about 5 or 10 min. later he said (Mam) and when I turned to look at him he asked me if I was talking to Aaron. I was so shocked that I asked him how he knew you and he just srugged his shoulders and said "well I went to school with David" but in the next breath he said , my parents are in heaven and Aaron's with them and he's happy. Well I really started crying then but the thing was they were happy tears for a change. I felt like a ton of bricks were lifted off my chest. Aaron I know you were there and you know this story, because I was talking to you and God in my heart and tears and I was begging for a sign that you were HAPPY. When the man got up to leave he came over and hugged me and told me to be happy because you are HAPPY. What a gift from GOD. If I get nothing else this Christmas I can say I 've gotten the best blessing that I could ever get. My Angel Aaron may you be dancing with our Lord and all your Angel friends. Please come see me when you can. Please send many blessing and prayers down for your brothers and sisters and nephews, and of course all the rest of our wonderfuly huge blessed family !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With All My Love & Tears, Mom Close
MY CHILD / SELMA FLYNN(POMC) BEAUTIFUL GOOD NITE (friend)
On the day God took you
I thought that I would die
I wondered where the time went?
I asked alot of whys??
With people all around me
I felt alone inside
From all their words of comfort,
I couldn't seem to hide, I thought I might be dreaming
That I'd wake and find you here,
I thought "This can't be happening."
As I wiped another tear.
On the day that you were laid to rest
My heart broke yet again,
I wondered if the pain would end,
But mostly, I wondered when??
It's hard to be without you,
At times the days seem long,
Sometimes I just sit crying,
When there's really nothing wrong.
I wish we'd had more time,
Before your life was done.
I hope your resting peacefully,
My precious child, Close

To My Beautiful Godchild!! / "Nanny" Pam Benoit (Nanny/Aunt)
The day you were born I knew I was the luckiest person ever to have you as a Godchild. When I first held you and looked into your beautiful eyes I saw an angel looking back at me. As time went on you grew to be a beautiful, special and loving young man. No matter what, you always made people feel warm tenderness when you walked into a room. As you became a man you would always make me realize how lucky I was to be your Godmother. Iwill love you always and miss you more than I could ever explain. I'am so so sorry for not knowing what you were going through. But in my heart I know that God needed you as an angel to watch over us. I know that together you and Todd have us all taken care of. I feel your presence when I'am down and when I feel that I can't handle anymore, I see your arms opened wide and that Beautiful face telling me that, Nanny it will all be ok.Just know that the day we all come to be with you and Todd that there will be a long line to get a hug from the two of you. I will love you today, I will love you tomorrow, I will love you always till we meet again. With all my love and kisses Nanny Close
Rodeo Dedication / Teresa McBride (Mom)
My precious Angel I'm sure you know that the week end of Nov.18 thru Nov.20,2005 The Sulphur High School Rodeo was held at the new arena in Sulphur. I remember how ya'll used to talk about riding in it when it would be finished. Of course we all knew it wouldn't be before you graduated from high school. We'll the first Sulphur Rodeo held there was in Memory of you. They presented us with a beautiful buckle. I'll scan a picture to put here on your site soon. It said 2005 Sulphur High School Rodeo In Memory Of - Aaron Golden. Of course I cried like a baby but you know they were happy tears. I celebrate every time some one remembers you. It makes me feel that your still hear with us. Phillip , Blair & Hayden were there to receive it with me. We all had tears. I'm sure you were saying Mom don't cry , your going to make everyone else cry. You remember how everytime I cried almost everyone else in the house either cried too or they got out of the house. Aaron I can still hear you say, Mom don't cry it will be alright. You were the one that always called me sexy and phillip calls me precious and Jake usually say beautiful or precious. THANK YOU GOD for blessing me with such wonderful wonderful children !!!!! Close
Aaron's 1st anniversary / Karla Willis (Family friend )Read >>
It's your beautiful son's 1st Anniversary in Heaven ... what a year it has been for you & your family. I've watched you (and tried to be there for you) while you've gone through so many stages of your grief. You have worked SO HARD just to survive this, and you've made every effort to keep Aaron's memory alive--just look at this awesome web page! What more could a mother do for her child?! You are a true inspiration to me, and I am so proud & grateful to be a part of your life. I realize the grief process is not over for you, and never will be completely; so I will continue to pray for you & your family, and to support all of you in every way that I can.
Although I never knew Aaron, I do feel I know him now ... thanks to you, his loving mother. He and ALL of your children & grandchildren have become so special to me. I hope that one day I will finally meet Aaron in Paradise ... and he IS THERE, Teresa! God Bless You All!

Your In My Thoughts & Prayers / Cathy^Kenny^ &. Buffys Mom
Dear Teresa, Thank You for sharing your handsome angel ^Aaron^. You & ^Aarons^ family are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Cathy ^Kenny^ & Buffys Mom Close
In the beginning / Teresa McBride (Mom)
On the afternoon of Aug.9,1982 I came home from work and cooked super. Father LeBlanc was visiting with us for a week (his vacation) He was hoping I would have the baby, because he knew that if it was a boy he would be named after him. Father was also wanting to baptise him before he had to go back to his parish. Well God must have been listening to his prayer because after we ate super we went to the laundry mat so I could dry clothes (dryer was broke) David HAD to go to a union meeting (haha) I think the place was called guys & dolls.Anyway, Father Leblanc ,Phillip Kenzie and I loaded the wet clothes in the car and went to the laundry to dry them. While we were waiting for them to dry Father Leblanc decided that he and the kids were going to clean my car. (I lived out of it BAD) I stood up to check on the clothes and my water broke. I then went outside to go tell them that we had to leave and when Father heard what I said I thought I would have to pick him up off the ground. I still laugh when I think of that night. Well needless to say we loaded the half wet clothes in my trunk and started out to go to mom & dads to drop the kids and pick up mom. Father Leblanc was making me CRAZY!!! I think he thought he was going to have to deliver the baby.haha. Well we picked up mom and dropped Phillip & Kenzie with dad and went to the hospital. After they prep me they let mom and Father Leblanc in the labor room. Aaron was a little tiny baby but he was killing me!! It hurt so bad that while Father was praying over me I told him to get the hell out of my room. He said o.k. and walked out. We all had a good laugh and I went to confession (to him) after. A few hours later Aaron was born and mom said you would have thought Father Leblanc was the dad. He was so proud !!!! I'm not sure what time Aaron's (biological dad) got there. When my dad called the bar to tell him they said he wasn't there and then a little while later he showed up (Must have ESP) Yea right!! Well anyway Aaron was named after Father LeBlanc and then he baptised him. He also was his sponsor for conformation and he did his funeral Mass. That of course was very tough for him to do. More Later. I love and Miss you my sweet Aaron !! Close

From a sister who loves you very much / Pam Benoit (Nanny)
Teresa, There are so many things that I would like to tell you each and every day but the minute I hear your voice I break. You know how much I love Aaron and how much I miss him right along with you. I know that my love will not compare to the love you have but I do want you to know that in my heart he was just like one of my own children. I miss him more and more each and every day that goes by. But when I begin to cry for him I can see Todd's face looking at Aaron and saying there she goes again. I know that I am not any help to you but always remember that no matter what I would give my life, for you to have just an ounce of peace right now in your heart. I pray for you each and every day that God will take some of you pain away so that you can begin to heal. I love you with all my heart and just remember that one day we will be there with Aaron and Todd to hold them in our arms and never let them go.I'am so sorry for not being a strong person when you need me to be but I have asked God to give me the strength to be able to help you thru you pain. Well I love you with my whole heart and will always be here for you.
