  1. Joseph Hillman Poff III, Louisville, KY says

    Jesse was my cousin. I remember him as a child. I believe I knew him as Aaron (it's been so long ago). From reading about him, he was very talented. I remember playing with him as children at our grandparent's house in Heber Springs, Ak. He had a toy guitar that he loved. I'm sorry to see that he is gone so young.

  2. Pete Elmore, Temple City, CA says

    I just found out about Aaron's passing today, and my condolences go to his family. He was a great guy, always good-natured, and a talented musician. I hadn't seen him since I came back to Los Angeles, and won't get a chance now. His passing is a terrible loss, and I'm sure that he'll be remembered and missed by those that knew him.

  20. Amber Ihnfedlt , says

    Through all the years of this our life, to leadFrom joy to joy: for she can so informThe mind that is within us, so impressWith quietness and beauty, and so feedWith lofty thoughts, that neither evil tongues,Rash judgments, nor the sneers of selfish men,Nor greetings where no kindness is, nor allThe dreary intercourse of daily life,Shall e'er prevail against us, or disturbOur cheerful faith, that all which we beholdIs full of blessings. Therefore let the moonShine on thee in thy solitary walk;And let the misty mountain-winds be freeTo blow against thee: and, in after years,When these wild ecstasies shall be maturedInto a sober pleasure; when thy mindShall be a mansion for all lovely forms,Thy memory be as a dwelling-placeFor all sweet sounds and harmonies; oh! then,If solitude, or fear, or pain, or grief,Should be thy portion, with what healing thoughtsOf tender joy wilt thou remember me,And these my exhortations!
