Geno and I were band mates in 1953/4 at
New Brighton High school. Even at that young age he stood out as something special. He still stands out as one of the most fun-loving, genuinely human persons in my 82 year memory.
Heaven will be a happier place with him there.

Pastor Demarco was so loved by me in my younger years and as I grew older. I enjoyed talking to him so much when I came back to the church since I live in North Carolina. I will miss seeing him, his smile and talking to him. I express my sincere sympathy to all of the members of his family.

Tanya and Family,
I was lucky enough to get to know AJ through work. AJ always had the best positive mental attitude and I appreciated every single conversation we had together. AJ and I discussed the value of family and spending time outside of the office with the ones we love. I am so deeply sorry to hear of his passing, he had such a big personality, to go with his big laugh but an even bigger heart. May you all find peace during this difficult time.

Tonya, Tracy and Mike
AJ was a very dear friend. I talked with him almost everyday and prayed with him often. He was always very upbeat I=even at the end of his fight. He never gave all and always gave me encouragement. I know he loved you all dearly and enjoyed the family times together. Tonya I know you fought the good fight with him and I so deeply appreciate the strength and courage you showed through those days. Tracy I can't thank you enough for keeping me informed with what was going on.
May God Bless you and give you comfort in these very difficult times. I Loved Him Deeply and looking forward to seeing him face to face in Heaven.
