Aaron was such a wonderful, happy, fun, polite young man when I had the pleasure of teaching him in his younger years. I know his sweet mother and younger brother, Evan, will be devastated by his loss, as I'm sure the rest of his family will be also. Prayers, love, and many thoughts will be sent your way. I pray your faith will help you through this hard time and focus on your wonderful memories.
