He lived ready... Aaron S. Williams, 29, passed away February 4, 2010 following a long, proud and fierce battle with kidney cancer. A valiant warrior, he lived his life with graceful purpose. Diagnosed with cancer at the age of 16, Aaron deliberately marched to the beat of a different drum, defying all medical odds to graduate from Brentwood Christian High School in 1999 and the University of Texas in 2004 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. His talents were employed as a Research Engineer at U.T.'s Center for Electro-Mechanics. Aaron taught us how to live. His indomitable spirit, unwavering obsession for Star Wars and gaming, selfless love for family and friends, and contagious passion for Christ inspired all.

The Buyer

Before we moved to Australia, Rob and I were selling our cars.  Sam expressed interest in my cute little Neon for Tara, so I did a little Blue Book research and arranged to meet with him.  We'd been friends for 13 years at that point, so I just came right out and told him what the Blue Book values were and how much I was willing to sell it for.  He gave me this disappointed look and told me that I really needed to learn to negotiate... he had been willing to give me $300 more than I quoted and had been really looking forward to haggling with me!  :-)  He got the Good Friend Discount.
