Knew Aaron and June from many years of memories spent at Calvary Tabernacle. Always good friends of the Wards and Hardy’s. Praying that God will give your family the strength you need at this time. My parents Harold and Glenna Martin thought highly of him also.

Mr. Ward was more than a resident here at Mont Belvieu RHC he was family . He was always present and visible throughout the entire facility, always stopping to talk or just enjoying the sun in our courtyard. He held a very special place in my heart and my life has been made the better by just knowing him .
My family along with the entire staff of MBRHC share in your loss and our prayer is that God continues to keep you until we all are united again with Mr. Ward.

Uncle Aaron always made me feel special. When I was a young girl, he made me feel like I was a princess with his sweet compliments. He & Aunt June let me hang out with them on weekends in my pre-teens and I always felt like I was getting their devoted attention.
He taught me how to spell his name. He'd always say, "Big "A", little "a" ron. He made it easy for me to remember.
When I married, my husband wanted to start an independent dealership with a well-known tool company. It was Uncle Aaron that signed a personal loan with the bank to jump start my husband's business. I was so proud to hand Uncle Aaron the "paid -off" note.
Uncle Aaron & Aunt June always had a giving heart.
Our family salutes you and your kindness,
The Hardy, Woolson, & Kuck family
