AJ Jewell Remembered as a 'Free Spirit' At Funeral
The funeral for Ashley "AJ" Jewell, the ex-fiance of Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Kandi Burruss was held this afternoon in Atlanta.
At the two-hour long service, he was remembered as a “free-spirit” who loved his six children passionately, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Kandi was one of six people chosen to eulogize him. Fighting back tears, she said he was “taken too soon.”
“AJ had the best,” she added. “And he has three beautiful daughters and three handsome sons to carry on his family name.”
His brother Isaac, defended AJ by attacking the media and bloggers and said they had misrepresented and misjudged AJ.
“What you saw on TV was only a snippet of how my brother was,” Isaac said.
Also speaking was his son Ashley Jewell III.
“You will always be in my heart. I promise to carry on your name," he said/
NeNe, Lisa (and their husbands), Kim, and Dwight were attendance. Heree, er, Sheree was noticable absent.
It was one week ago AJ, 34, was killed after getting into a fight with a man in the parking lot of the strip club where they both worked. No motive was released, but the suspect says AJ was the aggressor and brandished a gun.
