Thank you for your kindness A.J. The conversations in Japanese class or the hallways are enjoyable. From just saying “hello”, to your trip to Germany , and discussing Buddhism. You're right about being kind to others and moving forward in life. I'll remember you in class with your hat,flip flops, and prayer beads. Also, your light blue eyes. Japanese won't be the same without you….to the family and friends of A.J.; you raised a passionate and kind hearted guy.
