My favorite thing to say to him was "you fascinate me" Because he did, he was so interesting and intelligent and sarcastic and caring and and and.....
He liked it when I told him that. So I told him that often.
I remember reading the first post I ever read from him. It was in a monthly recovery post. And he said "I need a drink". I thought, man this guy is so honest and interesting. And I told him so. I feel very lucky to have gotten to know him.
I just read and reread this post and still have a hard time believing what my eyes are trying to tell me. Unreal. Profoundly sad. An extreme loss. He was a prolific poster with an optimistic bent, very refreshing.
Damn. I got to know Aaron pretty well over the last few years. We moderated sober living together and talked on the phone often. He was really kind and really smart. I was fascinated by him. Im just in shock. I had been trying to get ahold of him but i thought he was in rehab or something. I never thought it would end like this. I dont know ill have something to say maybe later. I just miss the guy already.
It's kind of sinking in. I knew aihfl a bit through CE&P, another BLer, and pms. He was a special guy, and his contribution here (and planned contribution to CE&P) will be remembered and he will be sorely missed. ?
^ Sorry, CD. I know this loss IRL and on here. Be well love. x
He contributed loads and it was just a reflection of who he was. Especially the news of the weird, to lighten up, CE&P heaviness - am so disappointed I never reached out more. I actually loved seeing his posts on all forums - fuck, such a waste of life.
Wow... This sucks. I oftten talked to him on the phone. He literally lived 30mins from my house. I regret never having met up with him like we had planned. Very sad. Hope you are in a happy place buddy.
I'm so sad about this. I didn't know him too well but I absolutely loved his contributions. He was clearly a kind and very intelligent (and funny) guy. He disappeared from here and I was worried but hoped it was a rehab stint...
