Kandi Burruss is devastated and heavy with grief over the death of her fiance and fellow ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ cast member Ashley ‘AJ’ Jewel. Issuing a statement after attending the funeral of a close uncle Saturday, Burruss says: “I am devastated by the loss of AJ. His death comes on the heels of the death of my beloved Uncle Ralph and with both of them gone, my heart is heavy with grief. I had spoken to AJ two hours before I got the call that he was in the hospital. Never in a thousand years did I think it was going to be the last time I heard his voice. He was taken way too soon. There are so many things that I should have said to him, wanted to say to him… But now it’s too late.” Thankful for support and heartfelt condolences, Burruss says “I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of my family and friends — and that means my twitter and facebook friends as well — for the beautiful words of encouragement, prayers, and the sweet condolences. I make it through these difficult days because of you. I know this is clichÃ©, but I urge everyone to treat each day as if it’s your last and tell that special someone you love them today. Don’t wait. It may be too late.” “Please pray for his children, his family and Riley – they too are grieving the loss of an incredible man, son, brother and father. I wish you all had gotten to know the AJ we all knew and loved.” Ashley (AJ) Jewell died Friday after a fight with an employee at the Atlanta area club Body Tap. Law enforcement officials say they have charged the man believed to be responsible, Frederick Richardson, with voluntary manslaughter.
