I knew Aaron back in the 1990’s after he finished his deployment on board the GUAM. I recently found a picture of us together and was wondering what happened to him. I am saddened by his loss and my condolences go out to his family. He was sweet, kind and creative. He wrote me many beautiful poems some of which I still have. <3
Thank you Laurie for your kind words. I am Joyce, Aaron’s Mom. I am so glad he knew you as a friend. Blessings to you . . .
