I have known Alex since the day he was born, if you look at the pictures of him one might not think of him as a Big Kid but from day one I called him Big Al, I don't know where I got that I just started calling him Big Al, maybe because he had such a big heart.
I remember one time a few years ago we all went to lake Powell on a house boat trip and one day Kathy, Alex and I went out for some wakeboarding we had to go all the way to the main channel to find some really nice water, we all skied for a few hours and Alex said he wanted to ski back to the house boat, I told him there was no way, it would be like 25 to 30 minutes no one can ski that long… well my nephew could and did, he was so tired but he would not quit he made it all the way back he never let go.
Alex never gave up on life either; he fought all the way to the end. I think everyone that knew Alex will be the better for it, he was always positive never down and never complained, he was taken from us all way to soon, and he will be missed. I will see you again Big Al
