Our sons…

Aaron Carlan Myers, our first-born son, blessed our lives with his arrival on August 9, 1986.

Just a few years later, Aaron’s brother, Steven Alexander Myers, arrived on April 22, 1990.

In August 2012, after spending a Sunday afternoon together, Aaron and Steven were on their way home when they were involved in a fatal automobile accident. Aaron did not survive. Steven survived. He sustained a severe traumatic brain injury. His recovery has been labeled as miraculous.

While completely different in their personalities and hobbies, Aaron and Steven were best friends. They embraced spending time in nature together. Aaron was a natural-born hunter and fisherman. Steven enjoys hiking, camping, and capturing pictures of nature. Aaron and Steven believed in compromising so they could enjoy the great outdoors together. 

Aaron studied Criminal Justice in college. He worked in the Loss Prevention field. 

During Steven’s recovery, he returned to college. He received his Associate of Applied Science Degree, May 2018. Steven is currently employed by Lowe’s. 

Steven is an inspiration to everyone that has the privilege of meeting him. He never passes up the opportunity to share his journey with others, spreading the message of hope!
