"Hardly a day goes by that Alex, crosses my mind still. I feel him with me through my journeys with the life battles that meant so much to the both of us. There are people and Religions, that teach and insist that there is nothing after death. An empty vessel, nothing and impossibility of anything but nothing exists! Well for every doubter there is a miracle out there. Thank you, Alex..."

"My newest and funniest friend, Alex Ryann, I will miss the hours of laughter, you've given me at all hours of the night through early mornings. Both trying to see who was the funnier one. Funnier since we had not met face to face yet. How ironic that today was the day to go over all of these silly photo apps. I will forever know that I missed out with what would be a beautiful friendship."

"Dearest Alex, I will always remember you as that beautiful little boy I met when I came to visit in Colorado Springs nearly 20 years ago. It was hard to say goodbye then and it's heartbreaking to write this now. You will always be in my heart. I love you, Cousin Liz"

"To my beautiful baby cousin... Your short life has been an inspiration to many, including myself. Your Facebook posts and pictures kept me entertained and always wishing I could see you more often.  You will be missed and I know you will light up the heavens as you did the earth."

"Oh, Alex, how very much I will miss your enthusiasm and openhearted way. We didn't know each other for long, but the impression you left in my heart will last a lifetime. God speed, my friend."

This tribute was added by Bob and Ginny Bowen on 4th June 2013

"Alex, the world is a little dimmer, slower and quieter without you around.  You were an extraordinary person who did everything you could to NOT live an ordinary life.  Maybe you knew you wouldn't be on this earth so long and that's why you had to shine brighter than everyone else to make up for the time lost.  We will miss you dearly.  Give God our love when you see him."
