We were sadden to read about Gaston's passing. Working with him, for so many years at Bute Street in Norfolk, were the best years of my life.After we all retired, our path's crossed at lunch time at "toco-bell". It was quite a while before we learned of your move to Carolina.Best wishes to Lillian and the rest of the family.

Our hearts go out to each of you at this difficult time. My own father, Frank passed in November 2010 and I am aware of the tremendous heart break that you are experiencing. May your many memories help you through this sad time.

Dear Aycock Family, I want to convey my condolences for your loss. It was not God's intention for mankind to die, but because of Adam and Eve's sin, they lost the right to live forever. Happily, God's purpose for the earth has not changed. God promised in the Bible at Acts 24:15, there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. Furthermore, Jesus also taught the resurrection hope and he actually resurrected people. (John 11:23-27) I hope in time this gives your family some comfort. Again, please accept my condolences.
