I had the privilege of working for Alex for 14 years, he was my dear friend, mentor and teacher, still all these years later I use phrases he taught me in teaching patients. Alex was a credit to his profession and his community. Anyone I have worked for since has paled in comparison. My time spent in his office was filled with laughter. Alex, you once told me there would come a time when I would look back and remember you with a smile, my dear, dear friend, you are forever in my heart and yes, I am smiling.
