In memory of Aaron Seth Mason

Created by Family Of Aaron Seth Mason

Aaron Seth Mason

On October 6, 1992, God sent me an angel. I named him Aaron. On July 21, 2008, God took him home. I lost my son to a prescription drug overdose. I didn't find out until his funeral that he had even been doing drugs like that. I had no idea and I still to this day cannot understand how I didn't know what was going on with him. There were many signs that only now I see... My son died on the floor of a camper in Cherokee, NC. He was on a trip with his Grandmother (my mom) trying to have a good time before the beginning of the school year. He would have been starting 10th grade. He had only been gone for three days when my mom called on Monday morning to tell us he didn't wake up. The autopsy showed he died from Morphine and Oxycodone; drugs prescribed to my mom. He was only two months away from his sixteenth birthday.Aaron was my sunshine... my life has changed in so many ways since he passed away. I get through it with the help of God and the promise that someday I will wake up where he is, with God. Aaron left behind two brothers, his bom, stepdad, dad, stepmom, three grandmas, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a ton of friends who miss him dearly every day. I know Aaron didn't think he was going to die from taking these drugs. The truth is: They Kill!! Don't do this to your family or your life. My son didn't even get to have a driver's license. There is so much more to life then getting high!
Thank you God for the 15 years, 9 months and 15 days I had with my precious son. I always knew he was an angel. RIP AARON SETH MASON;I LOVE YOU FOREVER!

What a tragic story. For some reason kids get the message: "Drugs will make you do things you'll regret." That can be invitation for some. I'm also curious if this was his first use or if he was an addict. Because that can help set public policy and prevent future cases like this. So many questions.

Thank you, Brandon. I appreciate your kind words and prayers. Sounds like you got a good head on your sholders, keep up the good work. Do me one favor, tell all your friends what these drugs can do... they destroy your life, your families lives and your friends!! Its not worth it! I still cry daily for my son and what his loss has done to us all. It's a pain that will never go away. He had so much left to experience in this life. Such a waste just to get high. Take care,

There is a saying that love starts with a smile, continues with a kiss and ends with a tear.

I miss you Aaron. Somthing must have hit you in the head when you decided to take drugs. But we all still love you and miss you and have happy memories of you.
11. Brandon Zaya
Dear Jennifer, I am so very sorry for your loss. I am only 15 and I have never ever weed, cigarettes, or any other drug and don't plan on doing them. I was reseaching drug abuse for my project in Biology and I read your story. It touched my heart. I couldn't even imagine my brother dying from drug abuse or any other love ones. I wouldn't want to leave my room. I just want you to hang in there. I will pray for you and your son. I am so very sorry for your loss.
12. Karlie Newport
This gave me chills reading this! i miss Aaron a lot and his story needs to be heard by teens everywhere that don't see smoking pot and using drugs as a problem! I'm here for y'all!
13. Betti O'Brian
Jennifer, my daughter was very close friends with Aaron when he came to Kell. They were friends at Freedom, too. She was at a basketball tournament, when she got the call that he had passed. To this day, she has a very hard time discussing him. She has friends that do drugs and always tells them about Aaron. You and your family are in my thoughts. Take care.
14. Jennifer Lamanac Aaron's Mama
My sweet son Aaron, we are quickly approching two years since you left us. I am able to tell people now what happened to you without crying..I guess its true that time does heal. We have learned alot and continue to everyday and I guess that was the point.. to learn from you. Words could never say how much you are loved and missed. I see your friends all the time; its hard to see how much they are changing. Makes me wonder where you would be today. But I am thankful that they come to see me.<
15. Mark Eriquezzo
Aaron, I miss you more than anyone in the whole world. No one could ever replace you. Also we will soon reunite and I hope you remember me as the middle brother in the family. If only you were here to know there would be no sorrow in our lives but know there would still always be troubles in our lives, but not having you put a scar on our family. R.I.P Big Bro.

Aaron's mom I am sorry for your loss I know what it's like to lose someone you love to drugs. I lost my best friend and my aunty and three of my uncles :( in the same year and I'm still having a hard time with it! I hate drugs -- they do nothing but take lives! Rest in peace Aaron my prayers go to you and your family!
17. Christina Pizzi
Jennifer, I read Aaron's story and I am so terribly sorry for the loss that you and your family have gone through and will continue to go through. I am also so proud that you can take this horrible tragedy and turn it around to educate other people just how important it is to keep prescription drugs out of the reach of teenagers. You truly are a magnificent woman to be able to do so. I will pass the information along to my family and friends. Thank you for sharing your story and God bless you

Jennifer~I thought of you this Mother's Day and sent prayers up on your behalf all day, praying God would give you some kind of comfort to get you through, and I'll do the same for J-Byrd on Father's Day. I know how hard it is for you as parents. Mother's & Father's Days are hard for parents who have lost a child. It's like a cruel reminder...I know how much you both loved Aaron....and how much you still miss him. We think of you often. We love you all. Love,Michelle
19. Matt DeCoteau
Aaron, we weren't the greatest of friends but I still miss you. You were a great person, I miss our conversations in social studies classes, our daily high fives and fist bumps. After you moved we didn't really talk anymore, but I know you were a great person no matter what anyone said about you. If I had known that one day was the last time I would have spoken to you, I would have chosen my words more carefully. Sincerely, Matt
20. Andrea Fernandez
Aaron, I hope you know that I truly did love you. I cry over you almost every night. I would give anything to be with you, just to hear you call me your cutie pie once more. Everyone tells me that you're in a better place, but sometimes I just wanna be up there with you. Please know that you will always be in my heart. I love you soo much Aaron. I'll stay your cutie pie always and forever. I love you.
21. Jennifer Aaron's Mom
I found out today another child died from a drug overdose in Cherokee county. I'm so sorry for his family. He was only 18. I dont understand why God is taking all these angels home this way. Or why these kids keep doing these drugs knowing they will kill them. Please dont do this to your family and friends- its NOT worth it. Its just not. I cry everyday, I cant even describe how much it hurts. I miss you, Aaron and I love you so much.
22. Michelle Peppers
Oh Jennifer...if you only knew how often I think of you, and pray for you! You are my sister, and I love you dearly. I know your heart is shattered, mine is shattered for you, and for everything that Aaron will never experience in life. I just want you to know I am not the person who knows exactly what to say to comfort someone. But if you need me, I will gladly sit and hold your hand, and listen. If you need someone to just sit and cry with you, I can be that person. If you need me please call.
