We would love to take this time to ask you to remember Alex for the laughs and silliness that he would want you all to carry with you. He would also want each and every one of you to not worry about him, because he is in a much better place. He is made whole again and is not in any pain whatsoever. His last words were, “Don’t cry for me, just live life to the fullest and remember the good times we all had together. The next time y’all play cards, cook on the grill, or have a bonfire, remember me and know that I did love each and every one of y’all.”
