Aaron was found unresponsive at his Lancaster, Calif., home on Nov. 5. He was 34 years old. Following his sudden death, Nick and Angel have expressed their grief on social media. Angel, his twin sister, posted childhood photos of the two and sent a message to her late brother in the caption. 

"To my twin… I loved you beyond measure. You will be missed dearly. My funny, sweet Aaron, I have so many memories of you and I, and I promise to cherish them," she wrote. "I know you're at peace now. I will carry you with me until the day I die and get to see you again."

Nick, who was on tour with the Backstreet Boys in Europe at the time of Aaron's death, echoed his sister's sentiments in his own Nov. 6 post

"My heart has been broken today. Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded," the singer wrote alongside a series of photos of him and Aaron over the years. "I have always held onto the hope, that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed."

Nick added, "I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz., now you get a chance to finally have some peace you could never find here on earth."
