“MAY THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT GIVE YOU THE STRENGTH AND ABILITY TO ENDURE THE DIFFICULT DAYS AND WEEKS AHEAD. PS.83:18.
“I was never lucky enough to meet Aaron; I only knew him through his works. We will read his name at our Sabbath services and count him among the Righteous.
“My prayers are with you and your family dear Aaron. You were one of my most unforgettable students of genius. The time you spent assisting and inspiring me to pursue my own works in digital feeds for educators will never be forgotten. Your dreams which really only began to evolve into realties in sixth grade were etched out in your programming skills even at this young age. You were always a prodigy that I knew would succeed even if you had to battle with others to get there.
“I am so sorry.
“To all the Scwartz family and friends, What a privilege you have had in sharing, teaching and learning with this remarkable young man. The pain (right now) of accepting that Aaron is no longer here seems more than one should/can bear. May we all find a way to keep our hearts from hardening.....May the tsunami of love barreling towards each of you be seen as an offering in washing away some of the sadness.
“So sorry for your loss. May G-d grant you comfort and peace during this difficult time and always. May Aaron's memories keep you smiling.
