A.W. was one of the nicest guys on the planet and he was a truly great friend. I am stunned and saddened to hear of your passing. You made my experience at APSU a much richer experience and I cannot measure how much positive influence you had on me. I love you and will miss you deeply old friend. This news truly darkens my day. I hope you are hitting all aces on the great tennis court in the sky.
