So sorry for the friends and family. We enjoyed fishing with AW on many occasions. Saying a prayer for all.

So many laughs with this guy. I loved his story of Scandals, and meeting his beautiful, sweet wife. He was the coolest cat with gold jewelry and great cologne- usually a little too much. :)
He was honest, strong, dependable, and funny. I'm so very thankful for his friendship to us through the years, and more thankful he is healed today! We love you AW! Rose, and family- you are and will remain in my prayers.

So sorry to hear of this sad news.. Love all the family.. Prayers are with each of you during this time. God makes no mistakes, now A W is in no more pain.. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten... The next days, weeks and even months ahead will be hard. I believe there is no healing for the lost of a LOVED ONE. You just manage to go from day to day... WITH lots of LOVE for all..
