I knew Aaron only briefly. We knew each other from a couple of Gaper’s Block events and then hung out at Simon’s one night in early June. Later he sent me a postcard at Ragdale, an occasional nice email; he struck me as extremely bright even as I sensed that he was a little adrift. I’d hoped he would find his way, and it wasn’t until I’d heard he was missing that I began to understand how far out he was. All I can say is I wish he’d made it back.
