Aaron was a bright young man who was just getting started in life.  He challenged conventional wisdom and gave people the benefit of the doubt.  He had a healthy sense of what is important in life and enjoyed doing random thoughtful things for those he cared about.  He had great ideas for a better world vision and everyone who knew him learned so much from him.  As he stated in his June 27th, 2014 Post Crescent ‘Letter to the Editor’, “Marijuana is Medicine – medicine that could benefit anyone and everyone in one way or another.  Cannabis is one of the cure-all’s of medicine.  It is time to legalize NOW!  No, correction – it was time to legalize ages ago.”
