The first time I met Aaron I was the new art teacher at LSVI. He would share a joke and funny stories. Sometimes he'd return in the afternoon to ask questions. I was glad he felt comfortable enough to do that. We'd joke with each other as would tease him about only running to the cafeteria. On his way there in the evenings he'd call out with his Cajun yell and say, "Ms. Lee, I am going to roll in and roll out of the cafeteria! You wanna come?" He was always smiling and singing. I can't recall his ever being angry or holding a grudge.
My prayer for Aaron's family is that you are comforted in the promises of God in this time of temporary separation.

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family and friends. I went to school with Aaron, but due to some minor strokes I had in 11th grade, I remember little about him, but my dear friend, Ray, got us back in touch and I will always have the memory of a wonderful long and fun phone call with the 2 of them when I was living in CA. I hope to see him again in Heaven one day and that would be great!

Rest in peace. Let me extend my sympathy to Aaron's family. I knew Aaron from the old LSVI/LSB days. I remember the house mother having to put potato slices on his eyes at night, but I can't recall why. I remember high school graduation in May of 1984. I remember telling his friend Ray about a book -- that as it turns out -- both were looking for. RIP.

Aaron, was one of my life-long best friends ever. We first met at the Louisiana school for the blind on August 29 1971 and were friends from that moment. Such was the closeness of our friendship that we could tell each other absolutely anything. We were with each other during very difficult personal times in our lives and now, Aaron is gone where I cannot yet go. Aaron, I will miss you terribly. Words simply cannot express how I am feeling at this moment. One of my very best friends with whom I used to run barefoot all over the campus at the Louisiana school for the blind now gone from us. You were truly part of my life: my very being: my very self. Good buy my life-long friend.

I am sending my sympathy to the family. Aaron was a funny guy. I remember when he was young boy in Baton Rouge school. He would go barefoot every afternoon. Come to the infirmary and tell me as a cold. I was the nurse at the school. I have many good memories of him. JOHN Richard was married to my cousin Mada. May he Rest In Peace now. No more pain.
