"Dear Carissa and Dennis,
This very sad news of Alex's sudden passing brought back so many memories of a young boy at Woodbury Heights Elementary School.  He was bright, eager to learn, and had such an gentle look when you were conversing with him.  I truly can see him very clearly, and reflect on those days long ago. As the years have passed, we lost touch, but his years were gone way too soon. I pray for peace and comfort in the coming days to be upon you all. May Alex find the loved ones he lost long ago and be at "home" with them.
Debbie Snow"

"It is with a heavy heart that I write this tribute for a man who was taken too soon.  Alex was one of very few words, but he touched many who had the privilege to know him.  I will miss our holiday gatherings with Alex and his father together on the sofa watching and commenting on whatever game happened to be on TV,  I will miss the wonderful way he had with the little ones in the family, I will miss him.  Rest in peace Alex."
