It took him five-years to find her, and what he heard was in his words “somewhat devastating.”

According to Aaron’s mother, the pair met at a jazz club, through a mutual friend. They hit it off, and Wilt asked for her number, a couple of days later they went out. The relationship was all a blur to Aaron’s mother.
