AARON GARRETT 1981-2010
This past Monday was the funeral of a long-time family friend, Aaron Garrett. Ever since we moved to Alpine 20 years ago, his family has been right around the corner from us. We had the privilege of taking this beautiful family’s pictures before his younger brother, Kotah, left on his mission 2 years ago. These photos were displayed at his funeral this week and were a stunning reminder of what a great person he was. He will truly be missed by his family and all those who knew him.
Aaron’s Navajo name is Haashk’e Iini Yedilwo’ii, which means Warrior Who Runs With Lightning. This shot was taken the day after his funeral during one of the many lightning/thunder/hail storms that occurred that week. It’s definitely no coincidence that they were some of the most powerful, intense and beautiful lightning storms Utah Valley has ever seen. His brother, Kotah, was actually up on this exact mountain at this exact time.
