"Alex my sweet boy. The past few weeks have been so hard without you and  the house feels empty and I am lost. You gave me so many amazing hugs, and kisses that I have enough to last me a lifetime. I am so proud to be your grandmother and I loved you to the moon and back, you were the only man in my life and the only one you wanted to be there. Each day seems to get harder but you were an amazing young man who gave so much to others in your short life. You will always be in my heart where the light shines brightly. Watch over me your mom and sisters and the rest of the family to help them get through this dark time. Love and miss you always my sweet boy. xoxo"

"Dear Alex, you were truly loved by many<3 I know even me is going to miss that beautiful charming smile always greeting me along with your hello,you were so handsome. Your smile would just brighten everyone once they saw it, I remember the day I met you, a summer ago.. I was at bow water park with my little sister and some of our friends, we all jumped in the water and I thought it was freezing so I had stayed by the ladder to get use to it as my sister was swimming around, all a sudden someone had jumped in the water next to me which was you. As soon  as you came out of the water the first thing you saw was me and you said," has anyone called you beautiful?, cause your so beautiful, I love your eyes". Ever since then we got along and became friends, and that became an amazing day for all of us. You'll never be forgotten beautiful boy <3 ready in peace, cause heaven has now have an amazing angel.

"When i first heard the news, it didnt quite register, probably because i was driving at the time. By the time i had driven home i was a mess of tears and i convinced myself that its not real. Sadly now its pretty real and theres nothing to do but celebrate your life! I know you would perfer to be celebrated then mourned, so thats just what im trying to do. However i also learned some very great lessons. This experience has changed my life and the life of many, including your family. I personally will never take my family and loved ones for granted, who knows how long ill be here. Also i will drive much safer, and live with no regrets. I miss and love you so much. God hand picked quite the angel this time. Thank you for all the memories and all the lessons you taught me. See ya soon! Xoxox"

"Alex I never knew you the best and I wish I could of got to know you better before your passing , it's breaks my heart to know I will never get to know you like I wanted to. You were a charming young man and always knew how to make me smile when I was upset or just pissed off with everything. I won't forget the time a bird shit on the arm of my coat and all you could do was smile and laugh , after you stoppe laughing and looked at my face you could tell I was embarrassed so you walked all the way inside the school got paper towel came back outside across the road and helped me clean off the arm of my coat. I must say bud it was the sweetest thing anyone has done for me up at school isn't the same without you up there not just for me but for a lot of people. Your greatly missed , rest in peace xo love you <3"
