I feel so bad for the family and students at Churchill High School. It will be so different for all his friends not having him there at Prom and Graduation. It will be very tough to go to school tomorrow and finish off the school year. Just remember that life goes on after high school, there are bigger and better things to do, places to go and things to see. Live life to the fullest for you do not know when it may be over, remember nothing lasts forever so enjoy it while you can.
God Bless everyone and remember Aaron is always shining down on you.

God Bless everyone, I hope you all find the strength to move on with your lives.

What was the guy thinking when he propelled himself off that ramp/jump and flew 60 (SIXTY FRICKING FEET) up into the air and hit a tree? Was he drunk, high, or just plain stupid to do something like that? Pick one. His stupidity forfeited his life. Glad dad was there to try and stop his son from even trying such a stupid thing. Other than this bit of truth, which many people can't accept, I do feel sorry for him thou.

Read the newspaper report and it did say he jumped a snow ramp, flew 60 feet into the air and landed in a tree, Knob.

I was there. He jumped nothing. People always believe the media. The investigative reporter believes that his ski's POSSIBLY left the ground for a few feet. The 60 feet came about because it was 60 feet from where he left the groomed trail to where he impacted the tree. Do the math people - to lauch a 500 LB snowmobile with a 200 Lb rider 60 feet you would have to be doing 80+ MPH. His track never left the ground.
