AJ is best remembered by the following description given to him by his friends in the P.S.D.S. unit at the U.S.P.O.: A Picture of You �We took a picture of you today. Not a picture of your physical features, but a picture of your soul. In given time to develop the picture in our minds, we saw a kind, caring and dedicated individual who always thinks of others before himself. We saw sitting behind a brown hardware of a desk the software of a man: a wonderful fathers, a family man, a loving grandfather, one who wants and sees the best in them all. The character of being a father image to anyone who longed for one. A good listener with the desire to help others work through problems, job or family related. We peeped into the depth of your soul and discovered that you held a totally unselfish nature. Never esteeming yourself better than others. You�ve proved to be the best leader a person could ever want. Behind your eyes we found all the enjoyment of beautiful carpentry as well as an ear for country music. Just a good old country boy who makes the word country proud. We placed this picture next to our heart so that we would be able to develop some of the wonderful qualities: Being very dedicated, timely, and conscientious to family and work. Most of all easy going.� Written by PSDS Technicians
