    I met A. J. at the Plant and with both of us Truth seekers and knowing and fearing the Mighty G-d ... we liked each other almost immediately. I was truly saddened and shocked at his passing and know he will be missed so much by so many. The comfort is that he did not suffer a long illness. My extreme condolences to the family and loved ones. May the Creator of the Universe hold you in His loving arms and guide you, comfort you and bless you.
