Please accept my heartfelt condolences, and wishes that your memories of Aran will help to assuage your grief. Aran was a bright light. She was always happy and talkative during her many, many visits to Sobeys. Her positive attitude was amazing to behold. All of us will truly miss her, she was taken from us far too soon.
I know that words will not help at this time, but hopefully somewhere down the road you will be able to look back on these words and feel both a sense of peace and a confirmation that your mother’s undying spirit lives on.

Miichael, Shannon and Christopher, Thank you for sharing the photos and stories of your mom and wife. I cannot imagine a world without Aran. I appreciated her humour, her huge smile and love of life. She was one of my favourite students in high school and I cherished our friendship as she became an adult.

I will keep her forever in my heart! God bless you all and God bless our dearest Aran! ❤️❣️

I didn’t know aran really well but she always greeted me with a smile and conversation. She was the sweetest lady I will miss our conversations in the grocery store .aran you are at peace .you are angel in heaven just like you were here on earth you touched so many .
Sheila cunningham brannen
To Mike, Shannon, and Christopher,
Aran was a loving mother always smiling. Sitting in the front row at concerts, she lived for her family, and it showed every time I saw her. I will miss seeing her smiles and the quick hello exchanges at events or at the pool swimming. Your sand castles at Summerville made me jealous, they contained such great ideas and always well made.
She will be with you in all you do, and in the hearts of those she touched. Our condolences to all of you.
This was one strong lady that I will truly miss you’ll always be an inspiration to us all and taught us all something life goes on as long as you have the determination until you take you last breath you never give up never stop fighting always stay positive . I’m going to miss you my friend and your visits spread your tired wings and be free . May your strength live in your children . Be at peace my dear friend I’ll never forget you .. no more suffering prayers are with the family . Your smile I will remember and the energy you gave . Rest easy my friend worry no more love you always .
Michael, Shannon and Christopher, we would like to send our deepest condolences. Aran was an incredibly positive and warm person and will be missed by so many.
so sorry to hear of aran’s passing I knew her from working at the fish plants ,she was well like by everyone that knew her .R.I.P aran
I was so sorry to hear of Aran’s passing. The last time I met Aran, a few years back, we celebrated that she
was positive she had it beat. Aran was very happy, and made the most of her life! Her little family, Mike and
her two children meant the world to her. She gave 110% of herself to everything around her. Aran, I know you’re up in heaven giving everyone up there 120% of yourself!!
Rest in Peace.
I was so shocked to learn of Aran’s passing – she was the most upbeat and positive person I think I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, even when facing all the adversities thrown her way. She bravely fought against her cancer, always with a smile and a knowing that she was somehow going to beat it. To Aran’s family, whenever she and I had the chance to sit and have a talk, she always talked of you, how much she loved and cherished her children and Mike – hold on to that love. I am so very very sorry for your loss. She was a very bright light in what can sometimes be a very dark world. She’s up there shining down on all of you now. RIP Aran – you will be missed by so many.
To the family
so sorry to hear of such a beautiful young gal leaving us , she fought hard and was always positive
and smiling , our heartfelt sympathy to all of her family
My deepest sympathies goes out to Michael, Shannon and Christopher. I had the pleasure to have been Aran friend since high school. We played on the soccer and vollyball teams over the years at school. Aran was always happy and fun to be around with. Her positive attitude got her futher in life and cheered many people up. I was honored to be able to see Aran and Michael join hands in marriage 15 years ago. It was nice I was able to see Aran 9 years ago when she visited family in Ontario. I was heart broken when I read the message of her passing. She battled so much in the last 5 years and now she can rest in peace. Aran I will miss you dearly and rest easy now till we meet again someday. xoxo
Corrina & Farin
Mike, Shannon, Christopher and family, our heartfelt and deepest condolences to each of you at this unimaginable time…. Aaron was a beautiful sole inside and out, she had a heart like no other, and a smile that we will never forget. I don’t remember there ever being a time that Aaron never had a smile, even when she faced challenge after challenge she never stopped smiling and had always made the time to stop and chat. She possessed a caring & compassionate personality and inner strength that were one of a kind ❤️ Aaron’s shining spirit will forever be and live within you.
John Townsend & Betty-Anne Williams Hill Side Rd. Brooklyn
I first met Aran sitting in front of her home chatting with a visiting sister. We exchanged pleasantries, and from then on it was always hi, and a huge smile, as though we were long lost friends. She most certainly was a true inspiration to me. To the family we offer our deepest sympathies at this most difficult time.
Mike and Donna West
