I am so sorry for your loss. Aaron was an amazingly special person. Just thinking of my memories of him bring a smile to my face…. You all are in my thoughts and prayers during this time and I hope somehow you can find some comfort in just knowing how much Aaron touched so many lives.

Andrea,Becky,Barb and family. I am very sorry to hear about Aaron. Aaron touched so many people in his life that I am sure his memory will outlast the test of time. He could light up the darkest of room with his humor we all will deeply miss him.

I’m very sorry for your loss. Aaron was a great person and his passing greatly saddens me and Jay. Andi you were one of my first friends when I moved to Columbus and in turn Aaron was Jays first friend when he moved to Columbus. We both have so many great memories with Aaron. When he first moved to Columbus I remember I told him he had to help me move. Not even knowing me he said ok. I remember lugging my stuff up and down a total of six flights of stairs and across Chittenden in the rain and not once did Aaron complain. That was just the first time I meet him and he was so cool about helping me. I’m so glad I got to know Aaron I could never thank him enough for the great friend he was to me and especially too Jay. He’ll never know how much that friendship means too him. I’ll miss ya always dude.

Andrea and Family,
Like many others, I was so sorry to hear about the loss of Aaron. I am praying that you will find some comfort during this tough time. I only have wonderful, funny memories of Aaron…like when he started wearing dresses to school in protest of the no shorts rule. So unfair to the male students! 🙂
