I couldn’t have asked for a better man to name my son after. AJ and I are so lucky to have had such a great man for our son. His buddy will forever miss him, as well as myself. I will make sure his Lunker never forgets how much he’s loved ❤️

There are no words for the loss of AJ. Our thoughts and prayers are with Twila, AJ Jr. and family. Whenever I would see AJ at ACE, we shared a story or two about our grandkids. May he rest in peace
