Brenda, Donna, & James,
I just wanted to offer our condolences on the loss of Mr. Asa. He was a good man who worked hard all of his life and provided for his wife and children. His military service will always be remembered and we all THANK him everyday...in some way. I used to see him at all of Aaron's baseball games...he loved his children and his grandchildren. Rest in Peace Mr. Asa.
