Aidan' Memorial

The Poem

Aidan’s Light is dedicated to our son, Aidan, who died by suicide, July 27, 2020.  After his death, a close friend of his, Ella, shared a poem Aidan had written for her - titled “The Light Inside”.   We thank Ella deeply for sharing this poem with us, giving us the inspiration to start and share Aidan’s Light with others who may be contemplating suicide - so they can  remember their own light.

The Light Inside

There is a light inside us all,
Some are big and bright,
Some are small and dull.
Some just turned on,
Some are old and going out.
But it's there.
That light is beautiful,
No matter who owns that light.
It's there for a reason.

Don't forget your light.

-Aidan J. Hegge
