*** UPDATE*** Thank you all so much for the overwhelming support. We have been absolutely blown away by the contributions by all of you and cannot thank you enough. We've reached and exceeded our initial goal, we are humbled by all of your love,kindess and support. We were not necessarily aware of all of the costs of putting this together up front and so we have adjusted our goal to better reflect the expenses that Hunter's family will have , now that we have a better idea. Should anyone still wish to contribute it would be a wonderful gesture. Thank you all again. Let's celebrate Aaron's life on Friday.
It is with heavy hearts and our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the sudden passing of our beloved Aaron Hunter on August 2nd 2017. Aaron was loved by so many people, touched so many lives and we invite you to join us to celebrate his life.
A memorial service will be held on Friday August 11th at 1:00pm – 3:00pm at Parkland Funeral Services (3502 44 Ave, Stony Plain, AB). A viewing will be held at 12:00pm prior to the service for those who wish to attend. There will be the opportunity to speak at the service and again afterwards at the Celebration of Life. We will have an open mic for sharing loving stories and memories shared with Aaron as well as a slideshow capturing some of his greatest moments.
The Celebration of Life will be at Muir lake Community hall at 3:00pm following the service (53424 Hwy 779 Parkland County, Ab).
A balloon ceremony is planned where you will have the opportunity to share a memory or personal message for Aaron Hunter and release them together in a final act of love and memory. If you wish you can prepare something to bring or write your message at the hall.
Please bring your favorite photo of Aaron so that we may all share the memory and create a beautiful keepsake for his family.
At this time we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to help support his family and loved ones in this trying time.
It fills us with awe and gratitude to see how many people have supported us during this difficult time. We are humbled by all of your love, prayers and support, it has been beautiful and absolutely essential for us. Thank you for showing us how much Aaron was loved and how much he meant to so many people, it brings some peace to our broken hearts to know the impact that he had. Thank you all
