This album is dedicated to Chris Aaron who left us less than two weeks prior to the event last year. While he is no longer physically here with us, his spirit, his heart and our memories of him radiate throughout this album. Chris ALWAYS told everyone how much he loved them. From this, we could all take a lesson. Say it. Show it. You just never know when might be the last time. <3
