Several years ago, I met Dr. Sharon Patton with Aaron introducing her, in her office at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. For him, this was a precious reunion with a mentor. As a young teenager, he had the good fortune of being a member of a summer youth work program at the college. During this time, I had the great pleasure of being tutored by him, learning the difference between autopsies and necropsies, the latter of which he boasted of eating and watching without discomfort. One day in his bedroom, Aaron donned with clear-plastic gloves and baggies in hand, I became intrigued, asking what he was doing. “Collecting specimens,” he said. Specimens? He was going to determine at the lab if the excrement of his snake, bird, and cat had any parasites, later, determining they did not. His enthusiasm and desire were amazing.

His love for animals was beautiful, rescuing a ball of fur, named Lucky, when he worked at an animal shelter in Maryville, TN. Lucky would much later in life become my dear companion. Aaron knew, like I did, her unconditional love and boundless joy for life.

Tragically, this beautiful boy with veterinarian aspirations never achieved his dream. I love you Aaron.
