    Dear AJ’s Family,

    What a special AJ! Our memories go way back to the days of hairdressing, her and Jim’s hospitality shown to us, and yes to the many years of daycare. Her love shown to the many kids, and the care and guidance for us young, inexperienced parents was above and beyond!
    Mark & Kay, Sam, Megan and Jake
