    AJ you have always been in my life since I was born, and you are one of my favorite first cousins. When we were children no matter where the government transferred us to Texas, Illinois, Colorado, etc. you always spent the summer with us, making our relationship more like siblings, and my fourth brother. You were always good natured and would say to me “deal me in” whether it was playing cards or sports. Because God blessed you with Missy, Jeanne, and Darren your legacy lives on through them, your grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. I know God has a special place for you with Linda, Timmy, and Aunt Inez whom I loved dearly. I am with you in spirit. AJ you are now last at bat “Get a Home Run.”
