"Dear Mr. Mixson:

Thank you kindly for your letter of sympathy. Yes, Aaron looked forward to meeting you and of attending a Texas reunion. He thoroughly enjoyed getting some first hand reports on the last reunion.

“Aaron died of cancer of the pancreas, a painful, long illness. His strength of character did not fail him. He was fully aware of his condition following exploratory surgery, March 9, and immediately began getting his affairs in good order to protect me. "He was an intellectual, a perfectionist and a strong influence, - a rare breed."

Sincerely,

s/ Mrs. Aaron M. Mixon, Jr..
