We first met Aaron some twenty years ago on our driving range in Florida.
He had an extraordinary personality, so outgoing, confident and charming for a pre- teen age boy.
He was with his grandfather and several things were immediately evident to us.
Aaron revered him and that relationship combined with other family members and of course mostly with his mother, father, and sister have been the foundation for his love and respect for his family.
And what a special family the Simons are!
Of course Aaron’s never ending health issues were all consuming to them and the way Abbey and Barry dealt with them was beyond comprehension and very humbling to us.
We can’t imagine any other parents being so resolute, so strong, so persevering, so positive.
Aaron possessed all of those qualities and if only given a chance, he would have been a significant success, in his social life, his business involvements, and he would have enjoyed so many of his recreational interests, like skiing, golf, fishing and working out.
He had an entrepreneurial mind and spirit, sometimes with unrealistic goals, but we have no doubt he would have attained them, again, if only given a chance.
When speaking with Aaron, we would always be aware of how fragile his life was, but not ever from him. When we engaged in a subject of interest, he was unrelenting in his effort to understand and put into motion what he was considering.
And when our phone conversations were close to finished, he always asked about us with genuine interest. When there was something of a health issue we were experiencing, for sure we did not complain to him!
Aaron was an important part of our lives, from enjoying him to feeling for him to praying for him.
We truly never knew anyone like him and our lives are so much richer for having Aaron as our friend through all the years we have known him.
We loved him and we send that same love and caring to Abbey, Barry and Rebecca
