    I miss my “son”. Talking to him always brought me laughter. Now thinking that he’s gone just brings tears and leaves a hole in my heart. He always called me Mama and I miss hearing his voice.
    Will love you forever my son.

    I don’t live in Indiana anymore and Judy found out AJ passed. He was in choir with me and school for years. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was always so sweet and funny and will be missed.
