Buddy,
I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing and my prayers will be with you and him. I can remember going out to WTAW on campus to visit your Dad while he was doing his radio show. What a treat that was!!! Take Care!

I first met AJ about 20 years ago, so at that time he was already in his mid 70's. I was always amazed at how hard he worked, in spite of having only one eye.

When I think of AJ...I remember his mischievous grin, his ability to tell stories about times past, how he could write a country song about almost anything (and then sing it to you), how much he loved his horses (and could tell you in detail all about their ancestry), and his tough, independant spirit.

I remember...

Buddy sorry to hear about Mr A. J. thought the world of him. He has penned a lot of cows for me also bailed a lot of hay.
Good Luck
May God Bless

Buddy, I can still remember my mom & dad dialing in your dad's radio show on the old RCA radio and my sister, parents and I gathering around the radio to listen to your dad's show which we thoroughly enjoyed. Your dad did so much for Country Music in those days. May your memories be with your always. I know mine will.

Buddy, I want to express my condolences to you upon your loss of your Dad. As I read and re-read the obituary and the comments from those who knew him, I was reminded of my own Grandfathers. One of them was a farmer and merchant and the other was a railroader who worked the railroad during the Casey Jones era. While the stories were very much different from your dad's, they were stories of history of our great nation and the strong men and women who made you and I and this nation strong. ...

Buddy, we all remember listening to your Dad on the radio in the 50's.
He did so much for Country Music and helped so many along the way. He will always be remembered.

buddy: the memories of going to the studio with a gallon of "bill bera" root-beer and donuts on sat. afternoon helping your dad with finding records, listening to his stories, going to spjst hall,listing to his music, will be missed by all who knew him.

Buddy, over sixty years have passed since I used to go on A&M campus and watch A.J. spin records. To this day I still use his phrase," if the good lords willing and the creeks don't rise. Your Dad was one of those people you don not forget. Dorothy and I are sorry for your loss and for the loss of the many,many people that were lucky enough to have met A.J.

Buddy and Family,
I well remember your Dad and his band playing "on the street" in Normangee when I was a little girl. My Mother and Uncle joined them sometimes as guests.
He lived a very long and full life and I know you are proud of him and all of his accomplishments.
Peace be with you.
Caroyl & Charlie Howard
