  • AJ was a special person — my sympathy at this time of change and loss to his family and friends.

  • Morlan Family,
    It was an honor and a priviledge to work with AJ at Whetstone. He was always happy and smiling despite the difficulties he dealt with. He will be missed but we will keep his memory alive.

    Jen…the “nurse”.
