Aaron Carter's going back to his home state, where his family intends to spread his ashes ... and some of his remains will be alongside his mother's when she eventually passes away.
Aaron's mom, Jane, tells us the family is planning to scatter Aaron's ashes in the ocean sometime in the spring, and they will be spread in the Florida Keys with some remains from his late sister, Leslie Carter.
Jane also tells us Lance Bass recently reached out to Nickand Angel, offering the Carters the use of his Los Angeles home for a memorial service for Aaron ... but we're told the family paused those plans because people have made death threats against the family since Aaron's death.
Aaron's mom says she misses her son and tells us they were actually texting with each other only a few days before he died. She says Aaron sent her a text checking in with her, asking how the family was doing in Florida.
