Jason Wendell Aldrich

Jason Wendell Aldrich age 28, went to be with the Lord on Oct 23. 2014He was born Nov. 10, 1985 son of Zina Stokes of Williamsburg and Gerald Aldrich of Sellersburg IN. he left behind 2 young boys Jaden and Ethan Stokes of Williamsburg and their mother Joy Byerly of In., Va. Brothers Sean Aldrich, Corey Aldrich, Raymond Stokes , Justin Stokes and beloved sister Kayla Stokes . Gary Stokes his step father of Williamsburg and Renee Aldrich step mom of Sellersburg In.

Jason was a creative, happy, caring young man that shined where ever he was. He loved God, his boys, his family and all he knew . He never said a bad word about anyone and forgave even the unforgivable. To sum up his story seems impossible; he lived life to the fullest experienced so much in such a short time. He was an old man in a young body. He served in the Army Reserves; he was born in Fla. and spent most of his childhood in Virginia, and met the mother of his children in Indiana where his 2 boys were born. I am not sure how he went on day to day smiling like he did. He had struggles but always pulled through. He touched so many and never knew a stranger. He loved to wear inspirational bracelets and gave them out as he saw hurt in others., their hurting was on top of his list. As a boy he was the one in the doorway in the middle of the night when his siblings were sick asking what can I get you momma. Later he jokingly said I just didn’t want to get sick! lol He was one of 6 boys and had a sister he adored .I am raising his 2 little boys Ethan and Jaden 5&8 yrs. old, that brings me to 7 boys!! They miss him so very much. Telling them both that they’re daddy is no longer with us was the hardest thing we have done and hope to ever do. They think he is in heaven eating sour candy in colors not here on earth and saying Oh my look at this one I wish I could give that one to my boys! Jason loved candy as does Jaden. His dream was to be a famous rapper and was talented beyond measure with his ability to write and free style. He said it was not for the money but he loved music that much. The lyrics were hard to listen to sometimes and of course he protected his momma from that best he could. But they were real, and he showed everyone how this white “boi ” could hang with the best. He was very involved with the homeless community and understood their struggles and would give the shirt off his back and did. He loved to read and write and loved birds and stars. Even in his struggles he understood Gods master plan and was very spiritual. Even animals could sense him as a gentle person and approached him as if they knew him. I still feel the need to take care of him. Please help me do the last thing I can do for him by donating to this fund to help me give him the burial he deserves. He is my prince and a child of God. God bless you!

    Jason, you are truly missed by everyone who knew your eclectic style and personality. There are no words or ways to express the sadness felt by everyone and the void people feel in their hearts. You made such a huge impact on so many lives, I know Jaden and Ethan will be proud to know how kind and giving their daddy was when they get older and realize how special you are. Corey and I think about you every day and night. Corey, his friends, and myself often tell each other stories about the crazy things (and impersonations, dughh) you and Corey would do, it reminds us that you are still hanging out around the house in spirit. The neighborhood seems incomplete without you, you knew so many more people than we did and we've lived here for over a year! All of our neighbors miss you, as well as all the neighborhood kids. They miss playing football with you, weather it was at the bus stop in the morning or in the evening after everyone did their homework. It still seems surreal, so uncomprehendable. Corey misses you so much Jason, I told him you are now his guardian angel watching over him. I hope you have the best recording studio up there and you are playing all your songs for everyone to enjoy. Heck, maybe your up there drinking a cold one with Jennifer:). Losing you made us realize that we all need to slow down and cherish every day we have as tomorrow is not guaranteed. We all need to spend as much time as we can with those we love and care about, and enjoy every day as you never what could happen. Jason we love you so much and you will always, always hold a special place in our hearts and home. You truly are a true testament that only the good die young. Rest easy, Jason. "Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down letting us know they are happy". We love you bo-Jay, MJ Hippy, Kasper, 7-up. x0x0x0
