Dear Al and Rhonda, words fail me, I/we are devastated at the news of the loss of AJ. We have very fond memories as a family and close friends as we all are, the images I have of the kids playing together all those years ago and the way they have grown up together and become beautiful adults is something very special to us all. She was a very special friend for Pip and will be remembered for all those great times they had together. Whenever I think about AJ I always have that picture of when she was Highland dancing at a competition she was at when visiting home some time ago now, she is a beautiful young lady and we will never forget. I wish I was there to give you a big hug and cuddle but remember we are always there to support you, you have a great set of friends that you can always rely on, my love and heart goes to you both and the boys, be strong, Love you all, xx Rob and family

“Nothing you love is lost. Not really. Things, people–they always go away sooner or later. You can’t hold them anymore than you can hold moonlight. But if they’ve touched you, if they’re inside you, then they’re still yours. The only things you ever really have are the ones you hold inside your heart.” Bruce Coville
Our thoughts and prayers are with you,

I am so devastated to hear the news of AJ. I am saddened that I am unable to make it to the funeral as I am travelling in Vietnam but my thoughts and love are with you both and the wider family. AJ was such a good friend. She was such a beautiful, loving, caring and thoughtful person and always so positive and adventurous in whatever she did. I loved catching up with her over summer, she taught me a few things about surfing on smaller boards and we had plenty of laughs...just like old times. I will miss her terribly. All my love, Sarah
Allan and Rhondda very sorry to hear of the passing of your very lovely daughter our thoughts are with you and your family.

I have a lot of amazing memories with Annajean from our young Highland dancing days. Although we lost touch in our adult years I was still able to see what she was up to through social media.

AJ - I am shocked and saddened to hear of your passing. I will always have fond memories of times together - one that sticks out is the amazing preball you and your family put on for us in 6th form, what a hoot! I hope you are at peace, will remember you always. X
