Mrs. Emma & Alma,

I was so sorry and shocked to see the paper that A.J. has passed away. I remember all the good times my family has with your family when we were young. Being an only child I always felt as if Alma and A.J. were my older sister and brother.I'll keep you in my prayers.
Love You

Miss Jett, I am sorry to hear of the loss of A.J. He always made me laugh as he worked on my line. Most of all I miss our small talk while you were upstairs. You have my deepest sympathy.

To the family, I am sorry for the loss of a wonderful,caring,always had a smile on his face,hard working, do anything in the world for anyone, kind of man...A.J. was my cousin, my dancing buddy, and a wonderful friend. A.J. was a fighter, and fought this disease for many years till the end.
Jett,I am glad he found you, he told me you made him happy, and was his everything..... I will miss the good times,"Jitter-bugs", his B.S.,and his smile. Well now he is in heaven with those before him. His dad Uncle Alvin, & my dad A.J. Breaux were waiting for him with a Budweiser and a Joke at the pearly gates. There will never be another man like him, and I will miss him, but I will always hold the memories dear to my heart....May God Bless!!
