I sincerely look forward to paying my utmost respect to one of my good friends who i will always miss; i promise to never forget the impact he made on my life as long as i live.

My deepest and sincerest condolences go out to your family at the loss of Alex. He was so young and had so much life ahead of him. I believe I met him when you visited Julie in Austin many years ago when he was quite young. He grew into such a handsome young man. I can only imagine the pain of losing him. I hope your memories of him will, in time, sustain you.

Treasure every single one. Talk about him. Look at pictures of him. Encourage others to tell you of their memories of Alex. You will be grateful for every scrap of information they can give you. You will be in our prayers, and we are hurting for you.
