I am thinking and remembering Aaron especially this time of year as the spring  weather begins to return.  It has been 5 years now since he passed away, but it doesn't seem that long ago. This is to let you -- the Xue family know that I have not forget Aaron or you as wonderful, loving parents and his loving sister.
Affectionately,  Carole

To the Xue family and all of Aaron's friends and relatives,

Aaron will forever be in our thoughts and prayers. Though he was so young, 15 is a good age to be remembered by - Aaron was so happy and full of life and I will always cherish those memories. I wish we could have spent more time together but never forget all the time that we did. It is still so hard to believe that four years have gone by and how grown up we're becoming without you. Fifteen, though, that was a great year. Thanks for everything - to the Xue family, and especially to Aaron for permanently enriching my life.

It has been 4 years now since Aaron passed away and I am remembering him this time of year especially.  I loved the slideshow photos of Aaron and the music.  It is such a reminder of his beautiful personality.  May he rest in peace.  He will remain  in our hearts forever.

It has been 3 years now since Aaron has passed away and I am thinking of you especially at this time. We have traveled this road together to prevent firearm death of children in Vermont.  I believe that we have made a difference by encouraging parents to lock up their guns so that youth can't get them as Aaron did. Please know that on this day of April, my heart is with you.

My heart goes out to you. I lost my 15 year old daughter Jessica Sicely in 1996. She too, took her own life with a handgun. This is a deeply emotional story and I was touched very much by the story that led up to Aaron's untimely death. It's something a parent never "gets over." Thank you for your efforts with this new law.

My thoughts are for Aaron especially during this time and for his beautiful family.  It has been two years now since Aaron passed away and there is such a void in my heart.  I hope the Xue do not feel too alone.  We are thinking and praying for you to get through this difficult time of year!


This proposed legislation is not the answer. If you want to prevent these things from happening in the future, please consider redirecting your effort toward educational programs.

You have my condolences for the loss of your son, it is tragic, and my heart goes out to you.
I would offer this suggestion; firearm's education in the elementary schools was a part of every child's experience when I was a child in the 1950s. It was extremely helpful for every child to be educated in the handling and use of firearms, whether they ever would use them or not. It is foolish not to educate schildren in the use of firearms, although we require it with fire, flammable materials, swimming, driving and many other activites and things that can be dangerous to children. Firearms are a necessary part of our society, and are tools which can, of course, be misused. Unfortunately, there is a perverse idea in our society that teaching children about firearms somehow will encourage them to misuse them. This is absurd! Although it is not possible to prevent children from getting anything that can be destructive or dangerous, educating them is absolutely esential. I don't understand why 'education' is so highly prized in our society, but when it comes to issues like firearms, suddenly 'education' is a threat.
I would encourage you to pursue a requirement that firearm's safety and handling education be taught in elementary schools and high schools, just like driver's ed. There are several nationally recognized and very successful programs that are specifically designed to do this.
Safe storage of firearms is necessary, and the reponsible way to own them, but educating all children about safe handling of firearms will last a lifetime and protect far more people than relying on laws that are difficult to enforce, and restrict the law abiding and law enforcement with more burdensome regulations. Teaching reponsibility is sorely needed in many areas of our society, and like drugs and alcohol, firearms can always be obtained regardless of how heavily regulated.
Educated children are safe children.
Again, I am sorry for your loss.
