I am so very sorry to learn of AJ's death. I send my heartfelt sympathy to his family, especially to Jo Ellen, his mother. I had the pleasure of tutoring AJ when he was very young. I am keeping all of his family in my thoughts and prayers.

Jo Ellen, Bruce, Marli, and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember AJ as a sweet kid, even when he was driving us crazy as teenagers (who were far too cool to enjoy younger brothers). Much love to you all.
