Aeron in the Sky
A beautiful portrayal of how our relationship with loved ones continues beyond death.
Aeron is my brother. Like some brothers, he makes me laugh, he wakes me up, and we play together. Even when I feel sad and lonely, my brother reminds me that he is always near.
This beautifully illustrated children’s book takes subtle moments in nature to remind us that our relationship with loved ones continues beyond death. If you or your child has experienced the loss of a loved one, we hope that our story may help to start a tender conversation about that very special relationship, loss, and the precious memories that remain.

Losing our son Aeron has easily been the most painful moment of parenthood. In addition to our sudden grief, we were uncertain how we should share these life-changing events with his toddler sister. In the back of this children’s book, we have compiled professional tips for parents and caregivers that we found personally helpful to explain death to our daughter.
One evening, on our way back from visiting Aeron’s grave, our daughter started to say, “Mama, Dada . . . tell Aeron no-no.” At first, we were confused and asked what she meant. She responded by saying, “You said to only color on paper, but look! Aeron is coloring the sky, so tell him no-no!” We looked up to see the vibrant colors of sunset. It was an unexpected yet beautiful moment of continued sibling connection.
We celebrate special moments like this with our book’s title, Aeron in the Sky.
