Lisa responds to the tragic news of AJ's passing.

I was deeply saddened to hear the news about AJ' s sudden passing. Ed and I have grown very fond of AJ. He was very nice, down to earth and an overall great guy. He had great plans for his future and the well being of his children. His plans were interrupted. He will be missed. AJ's family and Kandi will continue to be in our prayers. This senseless violence has to stop! Last week a 16 year old honor student was beaten to death because he refused to join a gang. This hit home for me because I have a 14 year old son as well as a 12 year old. The victims of these crimes are ordinary people that are loved by their families and friends. They are fathers, brothers, sons, and friends. We must stop standing by the sidelines and get involved. It affects many more people than the person that is in the altercation. I pray for the families. I pray for change.

PEACE & BLESSINGS,
Lisa
