in a perfect world of yancies: Aaron Roger Sandon

Aaron Roger Sandon


My brother, Aaron Roger Sandon, died last week. He was 26. We will miss him very much.

A very nice piece about him ran in the Helena, MT, paper: read.


The song now playing is for him.



Here are some nice, though perhaps embarrassing, photos (thanks, Mom):

Marisa, Gina, myself (?), and Aaron


huh


does this need explanation?

the five of us


This was posted on my blog last summer; it's Misti and Aaron with their daughter Kayci


Thankfully, Emily and I were able to fly out to Montana to see everyone, as was Merrica.

US Highway 287, if you can believe it, which we took from Bozeman (where we flew into) to Helena


Merrica in front of Aaron and Misti's house, which was completed fall of 2005

Maraya really liked being photographed, and she's awful cute. Here's a couple of videos:

  2. Hi Yancy,
    I don't know you but I know your (half?) sisters Gina and Marisa. I used to work for thier father, Rodger Sandon, in Seattle, Washington. I am so sad to hear about your brother as I had also met him several times but he was just a kid of about 11-13 or so the last time I saw him. Can you tell me how to get a hold of Marisa or Gina? I heard that Rodger has also passed away but don't know if that is true. The last time I spoke with him via email was a few years ago (maybe 5 now?) and he was very happy in Hawaii and credited the grandkids as saving his life. I was thrilled that he seemed to be content finally but saddened to hear that both he and Aaron have passed away. My email is Someunfinishedbusiness@msn.com and I was Rodger's editor, my name is Carole Paulson.
