Memorial Message

The following message was provided by Aaron’s father.

I want people to know that Aaron was here. Aaron was a wonderful boy who was growing up healthy and bright. I was looking forward to when he would be able to enjoy his adult life and I could be on the sidelines watching him. Now I imagine Aaron tending to his Rose’s on the asteroid B-612. A poor compensation for a beautiful boy now lost. Sometimes, I wish I could be with Aaron.
