I’ve always hated writing these, but now I have a whole new hatred for it.  I am very sad to inform you that we have lost another member of our community, because this time it hits very close to home for me.   

He went by the name Aeson.  He was my first Vice President , and he was an integral part of the 212 in its early days.   He was also a dear friend.  

Aeson never avoided controversy.  Most of the time, he dove right into it.  He had a big heart.  He would do anything for those close to him.  He cared about people, and his memory will live on as a result.  

Jdeb, the co-founder of the212, described Aeson as “an icon of sorts in our Zoomstory.”  He’s right.  And he was so much more.  He was a pioneer, a forefather (if you will) and he was an important part in helping mold our community into what it is today.  Most importantly, he was a good person and a good friend.  I miss him already.
