I went to Whole Foods today where my 7 year old daughter asked me if I could buy a bracelet for her. I bought it and in my vehicle where I tore off the tag, I noticed that this item was made for Alex's lemonade stand. I got on my iPhone and researched. In Alex's short life, where she lived close to my hometown in CT, she raised 700 k in 2 yrs for children cancer victims. Tears did fall when I read about Alex. It is so sad to hear about children suffering like Alex, and to read about her determination to raise awareness and funds for the disease just shows what a miraculous child she really was.
What a beautiful spirit. It just amazes me to see children doing such benevolent work in the world. My heartfelt condolences to the parents and family she is free and being cared for by the Lord.
I am truly impressed with Alexandra! Her true enthusiasm and passion to raise money for research on pediatric cancers will always be appreciated!! Her love will be remembered forever!
Alex: I think of you often and pray for you and family daily. Thank you and to your mother and dads courageous stand to fight this terrible disease. You are our hero here and angel hero in heaven.
Now she's an angel, watching over you and others. God Bless you.
That is so sad it almost made me cry!But it will get better.
I am so sorry for your loss!??
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Dear Scott Family. I'm deeply sorry of your loss of sweet Alexandra. I know the pain hurts! Last year I lost my older Brother on his Motorcycle it hurts today not haveing him here. Any way I'm very truly sorry. All my Prayers are with you Family & Friends. Love you all. Love Lola& Mimi

The years may come and go, but the memories of those who have touched our hearts will live on forever. How we look forward to the day when we will be reunited with our loved ones once again.
He will call, the dead will answer. They shall live at his command. For he will have a longing for the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand. And we shall live forever, as the work of his own hand.
I have never met Alex, but my school does Operation Lemonade every year I believe (k12).
i have a friend whose 6 year old brother lost his years long, courageous fight with leukemia 2 days before Thanksgiving 2008. I know what it's like to lose a young child to cancer when they've got so many years ahead of them.
i am praying for your family Mr. and Mrs. Scott - alexandra was a special little girl. thank you for the chance to know a little bit about her on your website.
Thank you for your foundation and the help you've given to so many children.
Alexandra Scott was not only a Hero for many Cancer patients and survivors, She was an exceptionally gifted and caring young girl.
Her mission to supply the needs to find a cure for Cancer Research, will never stop.
Alexandra will be forever in our hearts!
Isaiah 33:24 - "And no resident will say: “I am sick.”
I am doing a project on Alex, the topic is a person who changed history. O thought it would be perfect to did Alex. She was so young and she had the power to raise 1 million dollars. Alex will be in our hearts forever, even the hearts of those who didn't know her.
I still remember.
I had to do a project for english and i had to pick a hero i picked Alex because my mom had cancer and she is fighting for her life and now this little girl has made a deffrince in alot of peoples life
i was touched when i heard this story it made me cry tears of sadness and joy god bless you alex
To the parents of Alexandra,
I still think of this beautiful, bright little girl and have her picture on my desk because she was so brave. What a wonderful child she was and she will be in our hearts forever.
hi i saw the stoy i am so sorry about your loss.
Hi My name is Jessica. At School we have this M.J.R for all the grade 5/6's and we learn about different people who have an inspiring story to tell. When I learnt of what Alex did I was really touched. There was this competition and you had to write about somenone with an inspiring story. So for the 'Young Journalist Award' I did my story about Alex.. She was a great kid and I know that I havent met her, I have learnt heaps about her. Sorry for your Loss. Alex is in my heart forever. I hope that you dont mind me doing the story on Alex..
Alexandra is indeed in a better place and it is so sad that such a young girl was taken by such a nasty sickness or whatever it would be called I wish Cancer can be eradicated! I lost 2 loved ones to cancer and it makes me sad when I hear about others who lose loved ones.
I am soory But now am studing your daughter has influenced others by making the lemonade stand you should be proud of your daughter shes very intersting i like reading all storys about her but i am soory
To the scott family i want to let you know that your family is aways in my heart. I think that what alex did was wonderful. She is now in a better place. I read her story all the time. Its so sad to know that a sweet cute caring girl had to go. Like i said before you and your little girl is always in my heart.
Oh my god she is so cute in this picture. How could have someone so sweet and nice die at only age eight? It just doesn't seem right.
sorry to here about alexandra even tho i didnt know her she was amazing little girl and what she did will never be forgotten for the people she truly touch i never lost a child but she safe and in no pain and with the lord watching over all of us,youre in the best place ever.my condolences to your family.
My name is Craig Archibold from the Turks & Caicos Islands. I first learn about Alex story when reading my daily devotion via HopeTV. I was deeply moved by Alex courage and zeal to fight for what was rightfully hers 'LIFE'. I pray that God's abiding strength will forever be with you and your families and may the memories of little strong Alex live on forever in our hearts..
Thank you for your daughter. She was great from what I know about her... I Heard about her on a trip to Philadelphia I bought some lemonade and it said "Alex's lemonade." I was enchanted by her story, although it made me sad...
Dear Scott Family,
what a beautiful child. I also lost my sister Donna Cameron to a childhood cancer. I am blessed everyday that my children are healthy and my family will live everyday in memory of every child that has been lost to cancer.
MY college class was assigned to write a ballad about a tragic event. i chose to do it on a child whom had cancer. i was extremely inspired by alex. i am so sorry for your loss and hope you know i wrote about her and believe that she truely changed the world
I saw the the segment that gave Alex's father a dream day. This was very touching and he truly deserved the honor. After reviewing the segment. I will look at butterflies differently it will remind me of Alex and I did not even know her, but I truly admire her giving of herself to others. Keep her dream alive and I will too.
I remember when I first saw Alex's story. I was so impressed by the genrosity and caring Alex displayed. She is an inspiration.
I am so sorry that Alex lost her courageous battle with cancer. My daughter also is battling cancer--she has had two neurofibromasarcamas removed within the past three years. She has had biopsies, radiation, and numerous tests. Your daughter's story has inspired both of us in many ways. We are grateful for her work in raising money for research. Hopefully, the future will hold an answer to the perplexing questions that cancer brings. Our prayers are with all of you.
My friend Shadow and I are doing a report on Alex Scott and she is an inspiration to me and my friends. She was strong til she died and I hope her family is coping well.
you are a very nice girl,most kids would get the money and spend it on themselves but you donated it to cancer research,although you died of cancer at the age of 8 we will all still remember you as Alexander scott"the girl who made a lemonade stand to help cancer research and died at the age of 8"
I am a co-leader with Girl Scout Troop 686. Everyone has been very touched with Alex - her family - and her mission. Alex made ... and continues to make this world a better place with her presence. What an example for all of us ... her love and caring for others ... and determination to help others. Thank you God for the blessing of this little angel. We keep her and her family in our prayers.
I am Brownie from Troop 686 in San Antonio. I think Alex is the most special girl I know. We were glad to help raise money for her fund. I know you are better in heaven - and I pray for your family.
Girl Scout Troop 686 did a lemonade stand in Alex's memory and all the money went to her cause! The girls were happy to do it for her and are planning on continuing her legacy.
I am a Girl Scout leader in San Antonio, TX Troop 686 and when we found out about this amazing little girl the first thing our troop wanted to do is have a lemonade stand. The 13 girls in my troop put signs everywhere and put flyers at school. Our lemondade stand was on September 11, 2004 a day of rememberance. we had the best lemonade stand and sent you a nice check. My Girl Scout troop has made Alex's Lemonade stand their mission. The girls now think of other people instead of themselves. Thank you for doing all of this. You did make a difference you beautiful little girl. Our troop will continue to have fundraisers and lemonade stands to help you reach your goal. You now have 13 Additional Little Helpers that will help you reach the gazillion.
Estoy seguro que Alexandra estara junto a Dios, descansando en paz despues de habernos mostrado su fortaleza en los momentos mas dificiles
I first heard Alexandra's story on television a short while ago. It touched me deeply to see someone who was sick with cancer trying to help others that were ill as well. I have seen cancer take too many of my family members in the last couple of years, and have often felt empty, and without direction. I will use her example to draw strength in whatever struggles the future may hold, and prey that her family will take comfort in knowing that even in death she is helping others.
How sad I was to learn this morning of Alex's passing when I saw her mother on CNN. I only learned of her condition and her fundraising efforts in June when I saw a news story on the TV. What an amazing child, and can only say the world is a better place for her having been here, even just for a short while. God bless her family. May they draw on her strength as they mourn her loss.
I too am named Alexandr and my Dad first told me of your daughter and i see now what my das has always told me Children are a precious gift of life from god.He says its his legacy havibg me.My thoughts are with little Alexandra and she will stay in my Heart and thoughts forever.I think of her and and the Joy she brought to this world we live in.I,m 14 now andi cry as i write this.Ali Henson
I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. She is precious. I am a 3rd grade teacher and we are holding a lemonade stand in Alex's honor on October 8th!! We'll be sending you the proceeds. She is such an inspiration to my class. They love her!!! Love, Miss Little, kyle, brooke,Suzanne,madeline, sarah,Kanchan,thomas'Ashley,Austen,
Hannah,Annabel,Jessica,caitlin,Ni cholas,Reagan/morgan/peter/michael, Ryan K. and Ryan J. and Sweetie
Alexandra was an amazing, courageous girl who's legacy and message has touched the hearts and souls of many, including me. I was so moved by her story last year when I saw her on Oprah, that I shared it with my 8th grade health classes. I will continue to do this in her memory as well as start a collection in her honor. She is truly an angel. Sincerely, Barbara Jennings
I am so sorry for your loss. I am twelve years old and I know what its like to lose someone very special to cancer! At school,in language class my teacher gave us an article of Alex's Lemonade Stand! It was so inspiring! So our class has decided to raise money for cancer research.
Again I am very sorry for your loss and I hope that you all succeed in accompishing Alex's goal of raising $1,ooo.ooo dollars!
What an amayzing role model even for us adults. I learned of Alex through our Dealership participation in the Volvo Lemonade Stand project and I am Proud to be heading up this effort here in Roanoke,VA. I promise I will do everything I can to make Alex's dream come true. To her family, you can be very proud, some time a lifetime is measured in deeds and not in time. Myself and my family's prayers are with you and Alex.
hello, my name is catherine white i am a 12 year old girl.i had to do a project on someone i look up to. i choose alexandra scott. while i was researching her i had felt so much emotion from what she had gone through. now i have even more respect for her then before.
I have been so overwhelmed by the reality that little Alex is gone. Everytime I think of her struggle, her determination, and her pain I simply cannot hold back the tears. People like Alex make this world a better place (no matter how cliche that sounds), and make us realize how valuble life truly is. I first learned of her story watching the Oprah episode, and I was deeply touched then. After researching Neuroblastoma I often prayed that she would be able to pull through and beat this illness once and for all to provide the happy ending that I would like. But that is just an example of what life is all about. You deal with and make the most of every situation in life. If a 4 year old child can see the brighter side of things through so much pain, how can I ever be truly unhappy or uninspired when I have never experienced such.
Thank you Alex sooo much for touching my heart. I have never met you but you are more than an inspiration to me and I feel that my life has been changed forever. The quote: "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade" is now constantly running through my mind and is something I will live by from this moment on.
May you be at peace.
god will will surely comfort you at the loss.may he gide and be with u people.
i was so touched to hear alex's story in my 7th grade class that i myself want to hold a lemonade stand in alex's memory and i will donate the mony to the fund so they will find a cure for childhood cancer.
To the Scott Family,
Children are precious gifts from God. Little Alexandra accomplished more in her 8 years than many do in a lifetime. From reading some of the e-mails and seeing her on both the Oprah and Today shows, she truly was an amazing young lady. May the God of comfort give you peace that excels all thought.
Hi, my name is Lillian Tollette and as a parent who has lost a child my thougts are with you and your family. I just read about her sickness, she was a very brave and courageous young lady. May god bless you. my prayers are with you.
I am so sorry for your loss. My family and I will keep you in our prayers. God bless...
i love you! little baby i will never forget you! i think you are stronger and braver than anyone one earth..howiebird
I'M REALLY SORRY. HER EFFORT WILL STAY WITH US FOREVER
To the Scott Family,
As a work-mate of Erin's, I
followed Alex's valiant efforts for most of her 8 years. All of us at JVS send our prayers and I want to express my admiration for all of you
who brought such love into her life. Liz, I was stuck by your beautiful words that you felt privileged to be her mom.
Im going to 8th grade and my class had a summer project to read a book called "The Hero's Trail" and than find an article on a type of hero, and I am doing my project on your wonderful daughter.
I am so sorry to hear about Ales but what she has done has touched my heart. I was so impressed that I plan to host a lemonadestand someday soon. God bless you and your family.
Dear Mr & Mrs Scott,
I was so sorry to hear that your precious daughter Alexandra lost her courageous battle to cancer. I know you pain because I also loss my precious son Chad to cancer. Chad and Alexandra don't have to suffer anymore. We will see our angels again. I have been on this road for a long time and I can tell you that as time goes by the wound in your heart will heal, not because you have lost your love for Alexandra who was so dear to you but because you have gained a new strength and a greater faith.
Keeping you in my prayers.
Chad's mother Carole
Your daughter was a true hero and inspiration to us all. I am very sorry for your loss. God Bless
I became aware of Alex's passing when Neil Cavuto did a eulogy about her on his afternoon program. I couldn't hold back the tears that started streaming down my cheeks. The strength she had at such a young was truly inpriring.
My daily thoughts and prayers go out to her family in hopes of lessening the pain of their loss.
My prayers are with your family and I pray that the Lord will continue to strengthen you and keep you safe in his arms.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Scott: I can't begin to tell you how very sorry I am to hear of Alex's passing. She is truly an inspiration to which we all should aspire. Since I first learned of Alex and her selfless mission, I have looked at life and our purpose here in a totally different light. She is truly an angel sent from God who is now safely at home in heaven.
I ran across the story of Alexandra on the internet while searching for the obituary of another dear angel, "Princess" Hannah Grace Keeton (7 years old). She, too, had been fighting the difficult battle of childhood cancer. Isn't it amazing that God would take 2 little angels to heaven -- together! Their stories of love for other children are powerful! These brave little girls, I'm sure, will be playmates in heaven! May God give you comfort and peace through these difficult days ahead. May He bless you for your love & care for His precious child--Alexandra.
I instantly loved Miss Alexandra on Oprah, what a shining star she is! May God Bless your amazing family, and may you feel her with you in all of your days here...until you meet again..with deep sincerity.
My prayers are with your family as you play in heaven with angels.
To the Scott family;
I saw Alexander on the Oprah Winfrey show, I admired her courage. She has touched so many. Alex is an angel.
My condolences to you and your family
From me and my family
Dear Mr&Mrs. Scott I am very sorry for your loss of suck a beautiful little girl she will always be a hero in my eyes for what she did to help others who have this nasty illness please know that my Family and I are praying for you and your other Children. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
Mr & Mrs. Scott,
I first heard about your daughter on a sunday watching a show on the Diamondbacks that airs every sunday. I couldn't believe what a brave young little survivour she was. I am sure it was blessing for any one to ever meet her. I am so sorry for your loss. She was an amazing young lady, and I am sure she inspired many young children to not give up, and to fight. I hope that her spirit will live on forever. God Bless Rebecka
I was sorry to hear the news that Alexandra had died; I saw the Oprah show where she and her family were featured - what a courageous little girl! I prayed that she would get stronger and beat the cancer. My deepest condolences to those family and friends who loved her. I hope you will seek solace and comfort in each other.
I will never forget her story.
I first saw Alexander not to long ago on the Oprah Winfrey show and was amazed how such a young and beautiful child showed such an unselfish passion for others while courageously battling her own fight. I’m sure you are very proud. My heart is broken for you. I have two little girls of my own and cannot imagine. I lost my twin brother in April and he adored my girls so I’m sure he’s up there adoring Alexandra.
To the Scott family,
I heard about your loss today. I have never met Alex or her family but followed her story and admired her courage. The world needs more angels like Alex. May she rest in a better place. And may god guide you through these times.
The Caudle Family.
No words to express feelings, but Thank You for shareing this special little girl with so many.
God give you peace.
Our love, Debi & family
To the Scott Family. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Your special Angel has gone home to be with the Lord. My prayers are with you.
Hi. Just wanted to say I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a cousin named Nik Guy on June 18th, 2004 to cancer. It was his third bout with cancer. Again I am truly sorry. A loss is hard enough for a family, and I can only imagine what it is like to lose a daughter or a sister. God Bless you and your family and find the strength to get through this- dont ever forget her but rather make her memory last forever inside of everyone else...the good die young
no words can tell you how sad it makes me feel about your lose, but in my heart of hearts i know that you'r little angel has gone to take her place up in the sky with the other heavenly angels, and untill you meet with her agan she will be that extra star that shines so bright.god bless you through these trying times.
Your daughter was such a beautiful adorable child who wanted to help other kids with her disease which is very touching to everybody. She will never be forgotten on what she was doing at her age to fight cancer because not many kids fight cancer but your daughter was a big fighter with this. She knew when it was time to let go.
When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared.
Miss me, but let me go.
This is a journey that we all must take,
And each must take,
It's all part of the master's plan.
It's a step on the road to home.
Miss me, but let me go.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing deeds.
Miss me, but let me go.
God bless the family and friends of the Scotts.
Such a beautiful child. Your loss is heaven's gain.
The family will be in our prayers.
what a beautiful little angel! am sorry you have to feel this awful feeling that burning hole deep indide IT WILL GET EASIER IN TIME you will never forget and she will always be with you YOU WILL see her again she touched alot of people and her spirt lives on ((((hugs)))))) to you all mother of a angel stephanie Alexandra Smith

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today
While thinking of the many things
We didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me
I know you'll miss me too
But when tomorrow starts without me
Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand
And said my place was ready
In heaven far above
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love
But when I walked through heaven's gates
I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me
From His great golden throne
He said, "This is eternity
And all I've promised you
Today for life on earth is past
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow
For today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.
So when tomorrow starts without me
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me
I'm right here in your heart.
Remember me when flowers bloom early in the spring.
Remember me on sunny days,
in the fun that summer brings.
Remember me in the fall as you walk through the leaves of gold;
And in the winter-time, remember me in the stories that are told.
But most of all, remember me each day right from the start. I will be forever near,for I live within your heart.
To the Scott family.May God hold you in His arms and cradle you during this time. Rest in peace Alexandra, you are a truly inspiration to all of us, you will never be forgotten.
Alex has touched many in her short life, including me. Thank you for sharing her with us.
Oh Dear Lord if this precious family feels like letting go when there tears wont stop, and there heart wont stop hurting, please give them strenght to carry on, as you did Alexandra Scott heavens most precious new angels.
To the Scott Family:
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. You baby girl is SO beautiful. I'm positive that you know that she is safe and loved. Even though you can't see her, she is now your guardian angel. May God watch over your family and bless you till the very end.
Love Always, *Kesha*
I would like to start by saying how truly sorry I am for the Scott family. What a wonderful daughter you had, with such vision and drive. I found out about little Alex doing a search for my own name on the internet to see what kind of people I shared my name with. What I came across was a bright and beautiful little girl who in her life did so much more than most people could ever dream to imagine. This is truly a great loss, but I am very proud to say that I share something special with such a bright shining star.
With much love to the Scotts,
(another) Alexandra Scott
To The Scott Family,
Words can't even begin to tell you how sad I am for the loss of Little Alexandra when I saw her on the Oprah show my heart broke into pieces and I was so amazed how tiny she was and so beautiful and I knew when I saw that little smile she was going to make the whole world smile. I know she's not hurting anymore and she's having so many lemonade stands in Heaven and all the children or having so much fun with Alexandra and she's watching over each one of you'll. May God Bless and Keep you strong and don't ever let go of the special memories of your little girl. What a brave little girl she was. God Bless you.
my condolences to the Scott family on the passing of Alexandra Scott she was a wonderful person.
Dear The Scott Family,

But the reason for your daughters story touching my heart is this !! When you look at her face you can see that her heart and spirit were happy and thats incredible !! She was very beautiful its amazing that one precious little girl can be stronger then 10 adults put together !! Now all I can say is yalls angel is now an Angel Baby with wings and playing on her playground in Heaven ! just remember shes there with you all everyday in her on little angel baby way !!!
you raised the strongest spirited young lady, bravest of all. who met every day as a challenge,but who never gave up. may God be with you now for Alexandra is whole again no pain. shes there in everything you do feel and touch. she the rain the wind and warm sunny days. she will always be with you.
May you find strength to move forward and carry on with Alex's passing. We don't need to tell you how special she is or how many people she touched - you know. Take comfort in knowing she is truly in a better place and that she has forever satisfied every angel in heaven's thirst with enough lemonade to last a lifetime. Our prayers are with you.
Alexandra truly touched so many lives in her short time here on earth. And to the people whose lifes she had touched, how lucky we were to have either known Alexandra or to have known of her.
~i am so sorry to hear what happened but may God cumfort her in heaven.~
God looked around his Garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
He whispered to you "Peace be Thine" and gave you wings to fly.
You've left us precious memories, your love will be our guide,
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.
Peace and Love to All.

God Walks In The Dark Hills
by Judy Gatlin Smith
When you feel lost in the shadow of mourning
And alone in the darkest of night
Deserted by love you hold dearly
Your soul wrenching in pain and fright
Close your eyes and remember our Saviour
And His promise to always be there
To hold you--support and comfort you
And gently help you grow in His care
I know your pain, I know your longing. Be proud of what you had and all she stood for. In time, you will see this. This little life was GRAND and STRONG. In your dying hour she will be there holding out her hands for you making your transition easier. This will be the moment in time when you will glory god and be continuously happy! may god bless and keep each one of you. Always remember, BEHOLD, For I come quickly!
A very special angel that God allowed to spend time on earth. She touched many lives, and made us aware of how very special life is.
May God truly bless you during this time. What a legacy this little lady has left.
May God rest her precious soul...
my heart goes out to the parents
may god be with you and your family
at this time of sorrow it will take
time i no she's an angle now in
heaven god bless to you all
Lemonade will never taste as sweet as it once did....
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family now and always.
We were not fortunate enough to know Alexandra, but when we saw her on the Oprah Winfrey show she touch our hearts in ways words couldn't explain. We could see that Alexandra was a young girl who was a fighter and very special. She was a true inspiration. Our prayers are with you and your family. May God's love and comfort continue to bless you and your family during your time of loss.
Scott Family.. Im so sorry to hear the loss of your beautiful angel.. I remember seeing her on the Oprah show, and just thought she was like cutest and bravest little girl. She had the sweetest smile but now you have to think that shes smiling over all of you in heaven. She did her duties here on Earth to help others. She was so little- but did such great things.. You're in my prayers and God Bless!
IN DO TIME GOD HEALS ALL WOUNDS,AND WILL GIVE YOU HIS INWARD PECE.
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Scott,
May God comfort you both in these days ahead, and we will also remember Alex in our prayers, and support her efforts in fighting cancer.
What a beautiful gift from God to the world. Her wanting to help raise money to find a cure makes me feel she was an Angel sent to earth for us to learn from, that we all need to do what we can do, not only for ourselves, but for others. I know as her parents you are very proud of her. She will always be an Angel in the hearts she has touched.
Dear Mr & Mrs Scott,
I was so moved & touched seeing the beautiful little face of Alexandra,i know she was as beautiful in her heart also. Rest assured that she's happy and at peace in the Lord and may the joy of the Lord bring you strength & may it also guide you through the days and always know that the Lord is with you & will comfort you in this time of sorrow. (This message is from Tema-Ghana in West Africa but i'm gona use Florida where my sister resides and where i visit anytime i'm in the US to be able to have my message posted)
Even though her time was short down here on earth but her work was yet so great, I know she's with the angels in heaven enjoying a fruitful life everlasting. Suffer little child to come unto me and forbid them not, that's what Jesus said. Alexandra enjoy your new home above.
I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT I HAVE GREAT SYMPATHY FOR THE SCOTT FAMILY AND I WAS SO AMAZED HOW STRONG YOUR LITTLE GIRL WAS SHE WILL STILL BE STRONG NOW THAT SHE IS IN THE STRONGEST ARMS ON EARTH AND SHE IS THE ONE THAT LIFTS US UP AND REALIZE HOW PRECOUS LIFE IS!

She touched more lives than you can ever imagine. May God's grace bring the comfort you seek.
May God hold you and comfort you during this time of need.
May you find comfort in your time of loss.
Amazing love! As I saw just the few letters written, my heart was touched. To the Scotts, may you be comforted threw this time of loss, and tragedy. But reach out, because is wanting your hug. I pray that you will be okay, I know Alexandra is home. May you be blessed, and remember he loves you, and if you remain in him, and he in you, you will bear much fruit! God Bless!
She is so beautiful. In her short stay here on earth she fulfilled more in her lifetime than many of us do in a much longer space of time. She will not be forgotten. I hope that peace finds you.
I am so sorry for your loss. Being a mother myself, I don't know what I would do if I lost my little girl. I just hope that knowing God only takes the best will help you in this time of grief.
Alexandra was a beautiful little girl and now she will be able to look and watch upon you from a better place without pain.
May God Bless you and your family
Rest in peace sweet child...
I am so sorry to hear about Alexandra's passing. She was truly an inspiration to both children and adults. Alexandra was God's message to mankind. Be kind and understanding to those who are less fortunate than you. I saw her several times on TV talking about the Lemonade stand and saw how much this little Angel accomplished. You must be so proud of her. Know that God is taking good care of her.
God bless your family.
I will attending the Lance Armstrong parade today, will be thinking of little Alexandra, a fellow warrior in the battle of cancer. Her courage, strength and alturism is an inspiration to all.
We were fortunate to have this angel with us on earth. My heart is with her family and friends.
I SAW YOUR BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER ON OPRAH AND I WAS TRULY AMAZED HOW SHE HANDLED HER YOUNG LIFE WITH CANCER AND HOW SHE THOUGHT OF OTHERS. SHE IS TRULY AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN AND GOD WANTED HER TO COME HOME. GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY ALWAYS.
God Speed Alexandra! You were, are, and will always be an inspiration to us all.
This little girl was sent down to open the eyes of all of us who endure less problems and have very little faith in God. She is a miracle sent down from God to inspire us that we are here for his purpose. Family: she really touched my heart. I love lemonade and whenever I drink it, it reminds me of the strength and faith of your little girl.
Matt: 5:4 ..."blessed are they that mourn for they will be comforted."
My prayers are with you
Seeing Alexandra on Oprah brought tears to my eyes. I was so touched by all the stories. Now everytime I have a glass of lemonade I think of her and what she accomplished in her short life. There are truly Angels on Earth.
Alexandra is one of Gods little Angels, You don't have to worry,She will never leave your side.BECAUSE GOD KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR HIS CHILDERN.
We will keep your family in pray,The Dunn Family
Our family was so moved and humbled by Alexandra's courage. She bore a remarkable light. Her ability to lead others with her fund raising efforts is an inspiration and the greatest gift to all of us.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
I wanted to tell you sorry for you loss. I lost my dad to cancer 3 years ago. It is very hard, but with your family and everybodys prayers you will be comforted. You will be in my prayers.
The Scott Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my mom to cancer in April. I believe that Alex and mom have met, and are praising Jesus together. I will pray for your family. May Christ comfort your hearts.
You haven't realized how close to God you have gotten until you held his baby Angel in the warmth of your hand. And that baby Angel had the power to give you eternity in as little as 8 years. God bless her earthly family.
PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL OF ALEXANDRA'S FAMILY. THE LITTLE ANGEL IS SINGING WITH ALL OF THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN. GOD BLESS HER & HE WILL HOLD HER IN THE PALM OF HIS HANDS ALWAYS.
Alexandra was a beautiful girl with a huge heart my thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time
i saw alexandra,,on opryh show here in alexandria,egypt. what a true america spirit this child had show to this whole world,,,,, help others as you would want others to help you,,,,you were truely blessed when god picked you to be her parents,,,,she will live on through what all she has given not only to america,,but to all the people who saw her throughout the whole world,,maybe she is "our" peace,,,,for all this world,,, thank you ,,alexandra,,,,
The angels that come into our lives are not always ours to keep. They sometimes finish the work that they were sent here to do quicker than we want them to. I hope that you can find comfort in the fact that your little angel is now someone else's angel--Jesus' angel.
TO THE SCOTT'S FAMILY,
DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS BR TROUBLED. TRUST IN GOD. JOHN 14:1 JESUS SAID "PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU; MY PEACE I GIVE YOU, I DO NOT GIVE TO YOU AS THE WORLD GIVES".JOHN 14:27 I AM SO SORRY FOR THE LOST OF YOUR LITTLE GIRL. I FEEL LIKE I BEEN KNOWING HER FOR A VERY LONG TIME WITH HER STAND, BY WATCHING HER ON T.V. I KNOW SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE RESTING ON THE BOSOM OF OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN.MAY GOD CONTINUE TO KEEP HIS ARMS AROUND THE WHOLE FAMILY.
I saw your daughter's story on Oprah's show, and she left such a profound impression in me. I was amazed that such a small angel could have so much drive and strength. I thank God that the world was able to enjoy such a beautiful little girl. I'm sure that she is working her "charity magic" from Heaven...God Bless you.
I saw Alex on the Oprah show and was extremely touched by her courage and determination. I know that through her Lemonade Stand, she will continue to live on.
God bless you all in your time of grief.
WE ARE VERY SORRY OF YOUR LOST.I LOST MY BROTHER 2YRS TODAY.HE WAS ONLY 50.HEART ATTACK IT IS SO HARD TO LOSE A LOVE ONE .YOUALL ARE IN OUR PRAYERS
Your family is in my prayers. God now has one of his best Angels back in his arms. Alex was a true Angel, that showed more courage than alot of us.
I can't imagine your loss. Alexandra has done so much for so many, but now I guess God needed her more with him. You were truly blessed to have such a beautiful little girl to share with us. You will be in my thoughts and my prayers. May God be with you.
Dear Scott Family,
My heartfelt and deepest sympathies for your tragic loss. Alexandra is a beautiful child, you can see it in her eyes. God Bless you at this very difficult time.
So Sorry To Hear About young Alexandra She has passed on to live eternal life with Jesus & his angels in the pearly Gates Of Heaven. She joins my sister, Janice who died from Ovarian Cancer Last Nov 3rd, 03. May God Bless All Of You & Help You through this time of sorrow.
I did not know Alexandra, but after reading the entries she must have been a very special, caring and determined little girl. May God bless you during your lost, and do remember that Alexandra is still watching everything you are doing from the pearly gates above. Your family will be in my prayers.
Dear The Scott Family,
I recently saw your daughter on tv and she inspired me to help! She had a beautiful glow about her, she was very brave! God bless you and with every day I pray, I will pray for you and your daughter.
IAM SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR LOSS.SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.NOW SHE IS IN GREAT HAND WITH THE ANGELS.SHE HAD BROUGHT SO MUCH ATTENTION TO THE WORLD. I DON'T KNOW HER BUT SHE HAS BROUGHT SO MUCH TEARS TO ME AND MY DAUGHTER KNOWING THAT A LITTLE GIRL SO BEAUTIFUL HAD TO LEAVE SO SOON.. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS..YOU KNOW SHE IS WATCHING OVER YOUR SHOULDER. BE STRONG. TAKE CARE A FRIEND THAT DOESN'T KNOW YOU AND YOUR FAM.. MAGGIE
God has a special spot for your daughter. She will be that star that excels above all the others.
We are so sorry for the loss of your little girl .you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I did not have the honor of knowing your daughter. But I hold alot of pride in her, for what she has done in such a early age. God Bless your family and the memories of such a strong child.
Dearest Scott family: I know the loss of your precious little girl is heartbreaking. Cherish the memories and allow them to help with your healing. The loss becomes tolerable but never forgotten.
You were truly blessed to have such a precious gift that touched so many lives.
I lost my daughter, Adrienne to a neuroblastoma almost 21 years ago, at the age of 3 years. Adrienne also was a patient at CHOP. I thank God for the terrific staff that tried so desperately to save my daughter.
May God bless you and help you through this most difficult time in your life. When you look up into the brightness of the dark sky-know that your angel is helping my angel put those stars there each nite.
With memories and deepest sympathy,
To the Scott Family:
Jesus Wept. When a young person dies, we ask "Why?" When death comes after long-term suffering, we
struggle to understand why the Lord waited so long to bring relief. We begin to think of God as distant, untouched by our sorrow. We may question His wisdom or His goodness. Then we read, "Jesus wept." God is deeply touched by our anguish. When a painful situation invades your life, remember the Bible's shortest verse. Jesus shed tears too.
Oh, how blessed is the promise,
When our spirit is set free:
To be absent from the body,
Means to live, O Lord, with Thee!
May God bless you and your family,
May our God, give you grace and mercy each and everyday.
O- OPEN ARMS
GOD BE WITH YOU!
BE VERY PROUD OF ALEX, A FAITHFUL SERVANT AND A JOB WELL DONE, SHE'S HOME NOW, AND ALEX HAS WON THE VICTORY. SHE'S CROWNED! NO MORE SUFFERING FOR HER. PEACE BE UNTO TO.
To the Scott Family,
I read about your daughter in the paper & how very determined she was to raise money for childhood cancer research through selling lemonade. May her drive, bravery & very strong will be an example to us all. May we all learn that when faced with even the smallest challenges in our lives that it is, as it was your daughters, a choice whether we face them positively or negatively. Though very young in years, she was very wise. Thank you for sharing her & her fight with all of us. God Bless you all! Lisa Lyons
Our family had a neuroblastoma scare and I feel so much for your family.
I am so sorry that your daughter lost her battle but I hope you will one day take comfort in all of the good she did while she was with you.
I have never written in a book like this or posted on a public site but felt compelled to tell you that I wish things could have gone differently for your family.
I wish I knew what else to say.
so hard to think of what your family is going through.what a brave and wonderful little girl.she is happy and safe in gods arms.(lifes most precious moments where spent with you and the memories will last for ever)god bless your family.
Dear Scott Family,
Words would never do justice to express how incredibly brave and thoughtful your daughter Alex was. She clearly had a tremendous spirit despite her challenges, and is an inspiration in her concern for others. I read about her lemonade stand two years ago and she, and you all, have been in my thoughts and prayers since. I wish for you peace in your hearts. You raised an incredible daughter and her story, her strength, her courage and her thoughtfulness have impacted many lives - I truly hope the many donations she has helped generate will find a cure to this terrible disease. I am getting married this weekend and making donations in honor of my bridesmaids.
Wishing you comfort,
I'VE SEEN YOUR DAUGHTER ON TV QUITE A FEW TIMES AND I REMEMBER HER BECAUSE SHE WAS SUCH AN INSPIRATION AND I COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW STRONG SHE WAS. I WOULD SEE HER ON TV AND THINK "WHAT A BRAVE LITTLE GIRL" SHE ACHIEVED SO MUCH IN HER LIFE, YOU SHOULD BE VERY PROUD. I'M SORRY FOR LOSS. YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS.
My heart goes out to you & your family.
So sorry to hear of your loss. Our daughter passed away on 8/02/04 from complications from liver cancer---the same day? Know that your pain and your joy is being shared.
Words cannot express the sorrow I (and many, many others) feel for you and your family. I have never lost a child so I can't even say I know how you feel. I lost my husband seven years ago to cancer and it was very hard but losing a child, well, I can't even imagine it. I am now battling cancer and have thought to myself, "little children should not have to go through this." Bless you & your family and your precious little Alexandra.
Words can not describe what I really want to say but I do know one thing is for sure... My prayers are with you and your family and I am so sorry to hear of your loss... She looked like an angel. Beautiful little girl.
To the Scott Family-
Your daughter is truly an inspiration to all of us in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. I have never met you or your daughter but read about her lemonade stands and can see what an amazing little angel she is. I will be thinking of her as I raise as much $$ as I can to beat blood cancers while training for the VA Beach Rock & Roll Half Marathon & Marine Corps Marathon with TNT.
Our prayers our with the Scott Family and friends.Alexandra is in a beautiful place now where she is with caring and loving angels and animals while always having a full cup of Country Time with her.
A donation is soon on the way..
Your daughter is now in the most beautiful place in the world. She will FOREVER be your ANGEL. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
YOU HAVE MY HEART FELT SYMPATHIES.WHAT A COURAGEOUS LITTLE GIRL.WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL.I TOO HAVE LOST A CHILD.I KNOW THE PAIN.THEY ARE WITH GOD,FIND COMFORT IN THAT,AND IF I KNOW MY SON HE IS PROBABLY WITH HER NOW.HE HAS TWO LITTLE GIRLS OF HIS OWN.I KNOW HE WILL WATCH OVER ALEXANDRA.MEMORIES ARE A GREAT COMFORT.YOU WILL FIND STRENGTH IN EACH OTHER (MOM AND DAD).I WEEP WITH YOU.
I AM SO SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF YOUR CHILD I CAN'T IMAGING HOW IT MUST FEEL BUT, SHE IS IN HEAVEN AND I KNOW THE LORD WAS WAITING AT THE GATES FOR HER. SHE WAS REMARKABLE CHILD AND SUCH A BEAUTIFUL GIRL INSIDE AND OUT. I DO KNOW SHE IS NOT SUFFERING ANYMORE. SHE WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY PRAYERS AND SO IS THE FAMILY.
May the Peace of the Lord be with your family in this time of sorrow and loss.
To the Scott family,
Your little girl was an inspiration to many. SHe was courageous and brave and she will never be forgotten. I didnt even know Alex personally, but I can speak for many when I say she has truly touched my life. God bless all of you!
From the mouth of babies come some of the most profound things.
I am heartbroken to hear of your loss. No words can comfort you at this time and there is nothing anyone or anything can do to soften the hole in your life, in your heart that this loss is causing. I lost my 19 year old daughter, Lauren, to Hodgkins disease almost 2 years ago after she fought it for 23 months. No one can understand what our precious little girls endured during their courageous battles. Thank God that when the end came, it was peaceful.
Remember one thing that may give you all strength. You were there when God gave you that precious gift and you were there when He decided it was time to return that wonderful git. You knew the moment she passed into paradise.
God be with you in the time to come and give you peace.
She was apart of everybodys life she touched mine~ I lost my niece
of 29 of brain cancer~Dec 23,2003
Alexander reminds me of Kristen she loved life and all people
Kristen during chemo would lift other peoples spirits will she was recieving her chemo ~Alexandra had
that to My prayers are with you and your family
She touched so many in her young life and we should all hold her up as an example of doing for others even when you are ill yourself. What a blessing it must have been to have known her.
Bless alex and her family. she was a great person.
Your daughter's story really touched my life. I recently turned 18 and feel your daughter accomplished soo much in her young life, She is an Angel, in life and now in death. My prayers are with you in this sad time. God Bless
Some hearts are very tiny
the place inside is small
there is room to only love one
so they love themselves-that's
Alex's heart was so much larger
even though her years were few,
She loved us all completely until
her life was through.
Deepest Sympathy. Tom Atwell
sorry to hear about your loss she is a beautiful girl god bless her and her family rest in peace
Alex lives on in our hearts. We will continue to strive toward her goals. She will be remembered. Peace of Jesus Christ be with all of you.
I feel privileged to have read about your wonderful daughter. I will live the rest of my days with her in my heart and mind.
In her eight brief years, Alex showed more humanity than most people show in their entire, much longer lives.
sorry to here about your loved one.just remember she will always be in your heart and be with you know matter where you go or what you do.
I am so sorry for your loss. It was only 2 weeks ago that my summer school students at Hamilton School in Philadelphia and I were buying lemonade in your daughter's name. She will make a beautiful angel.
Dear Scott family....I have never in my life been so moved at hearing the story of your lovely daughter. I thank God for the time she spent here on earth, though brief,she was truly a gift from God that will last in our hearts forever.. see you at the reunion!!
So many wonderful thoughts and emotions have already been shared here and we can only hope that Alex's family can find some comfort in them. I was lucky to have met Alex. Her example of courage and love is beyond what many of us can demonstrate even as adults. Don't just mourn this beautiful young lady. Use her example to measure what we are still capable of, here on earth, where we are fortunate to be able to finish what she started, and dare to dream as she did. Look for that incredible gift that she had in ourselves and in others and rather than tear down our neighbors, build then up in the spirit she showed us all.
I will never drink another cup of lemonade without thinking of her. How can we?
Oh to be like Jesus!
Thank you Lord for another example.
To the Scott Family,
May you find solace in knowing that God smiled upon you when he loaned you Alexandra.
May God grant you that peace that passes all understanding.
The streets of heaven are filled with too many pure souls. God is fortunate to have such soul like Alex. God bless your family and that He may help you through this tough time.
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Scott and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know of Alexandra until I read about her passing. She was a wonderful gift from God. I hope the joy she gave you during her life and the inspiration she gave the world will give you comfort and peace during this difficult time. What a privilege for all of us to have known Alexandra. Thank you for sharing her with us. We will remember you in our prayers.
I was in bed feeling under the weather when I heard of Alexandra's passing. Upon hearing this sad and tragic news I immediately put my own illness into perspective and got out of bed. Alexandra thought of others at a time when most would be consumed with self-pity. She epitomized the meaning of courage and is a true inspiration. My prayer's go out to her parents and family. God has indeed received a very special soul!
Your child was a remarkable angel. She is now free to soar with the other angels. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Scott - My husband told me about your daughter. It was through wet eyes and a choked voice. Our son was also "diagnosed" with a neuroblastoma at three months old. In a sentence, our lives would change forever. Through a world wind of tests, scans and finally surgery it turned out that our son was misdiagnosed. In our eyes it was a miracle. The odds were so heavily stacked against him - it was the only explanation. However, it did not change how our lives were affected. We always felt a connection to this disease and the children it affects. Even 11 years later, it is always in the back of my mind - what if they had been right? To see your daughter, her courage and determination is also a testament to you, her parents. I always say, children learn what they live. Alexandra is truly an inspiration to all children who suffer with this unimaginable tumor and other life threatening diseases. She touched the heart of my husband, myself as well as scores of others. You and Alexandra will be in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
Hi Jay and Liz....My thoughts and prayers are with you both...I used to arrange Alex's homecare a few years ago...Alex was and will always be an amazing girl..I am so proud for her....Even the smallest voice can help a great cause....Her memory will always live on...Everytime I drink lemonade I think of your cutie pie Alex!!!!!!!!Much love, Stephanie
Dear Scott family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you know that Alexandra will always be watching over you as you watched over her here on earth. I hope I come across many of Alex's lemonade stands in the future.
Dear Scott Family,
Seeing Alexandra on TV and reading her story, words could not explain how moved I was. Her life was short but very meaningful. She accomplished more in her short time here than some people accomplish in a lifetime and for that you must be so proud of her. Her legacy will live on in the hearts of many. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Scott family, What a great loss of a beautiful little girl. I feel your grief and am so sorry that you too have to go through this as parents. My son passed almost 4 years ago, but thank God my daughter, a cancer survivor, is still alive. God Bless and please stay strong for each other. Love and peace, Michael Amato
My heart goes out to the Scott family. You have my deepest sympaty.
I was so sad to see this today when I signed on to this site. I remember seeing Alexandra on the Oprah show and she touched my heart. Heaven has gained such a precious angel.
What a brave and courageous little girl. Despite illness, fear and uncertainty, she was able to share her heart and soul with the world.
Her ability to rise above her illness and pain to help others is amazing.
No words may be of comfort to you and your family at this time, but please know your sweet Alex has made a difference in the lives of so many people.
May God comfort you and give you peace at this most difficult of times.
Grief is joy, remembered.
Alex's short but remarkable should remind us all to stop and look around to appreciate the beautiful things in life. Her angelic purity should inspire us all to help those in need.
Dear Scott Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your daughter was so special and an inspiration to so many people.
What an awesome child...what a great loss to the world.
To the Scott Family: Sometimes we don't understand God's plan for our lives. I can see that Alexandra knew her plan and has touched so many lives by being an angel on earth and example to many. May prayers, special memories and friends help at this time. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Children are a special gift. John, Cindy and Ariel McGregor
You are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this hard time. Please know that you are not alone. I was fortunate to see Alex on Oprah...what an angel...God Bless you all.
God bless you in this time of mourning, but Alex has touched the lives of many, even if she has never met them. My nephew is a cancer paitent, and her work on raising money for cancer has bought him more time, she will live on in the children she has helped live another day. God Bless her, she is truly an angel.
My prayers go out to your Alexandra. May God bless you and look out for you, like He has with Alex. Its easy to see here that Alex has touched to lives of many. And as someone who has lost multiple loved ones to cancer, my thoughts go out to you. God Bless
To the Scott Family: Our thoughts and prayers our with you all at this time. We saw your little Angel on Oprah and she touched our hearts, I know from experience how great the loss of loved ones can be and hold on to the memories for they last forever and Alex was one remarkable little girl!
Dear Scott Family,
Please know you are in my heart, love & prayers. I lost my 11 yr.
old granddaughter to leukemia in
2000, so I know how unreal those
feelings are when it is a beloved
child. Total shock & beyond all
understanding. You will be in my
prayers. May God hold you tightly
in HIS arms. In much love, CHB
To the Scott family,
Thank you for sharing precious Alexandra with the world. She is an amazing little lady who has touched the hearts of millions. My prayers are with you.
Our Lord gives us our blessings and we never question why; we only question what we think are the "punishments and hard times". I believe that every life is a blessing, no matter how long they are in our physical presence. This young lady is an amazing example of God's greatest blessing - her strength and love are to be praised and remembered, as should her beautiful bright face. My heart aches for her parents and family, but it cries for joy as well at the lessons she has taught us. Rest in Peace little one and may your seat at the right hand of the Father be a light for us all.
God has sent such a precious angel to be by his side. You wanted her by yours I know. Alex is in a better place and in no pain. God bless your family.
To the Family of Alexandra Scott,
You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this time. May it comfort you to know that your Daughter was an inspiration to so many & that just too many families are affected by cancer.
May you feel the most gracious peace in the the days ahead.
I hope the incredible pain you must be feeling at the loss of Alex is lightened by the knowledge that she is in God's safekeeping and that, in her brief but remarkable life, she knew what her purpose was and let nothing, not even cancer, stop her.
It's simply remarkable that a child who endured so much found it within herself to realize the suffering of others. What an example Alex has set for the rest of us. Thank you for sharing this precious child with us.
PRECIOUS ALEXANDRA MAY YOU WALK WITH THE ANGELS AND I KNOW GOD WILL CONTINUE TO LET YOU WORK YOUR MIRACLES IN PERFECT HEALTH AND SAFTEY.
MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL OF YOUR FAMILY AND I PRAY THAT GOD CARRIES YOU IN THIS TIME OF YOUR LIFE. I KNOW HE SURELY WILL BLESS YOU FOR RAISING SUCH A WONDERFUL ANGEL.
My heartfelt prayers go to the family and all who new Aleandra.
Thank you for letting us get to know her. She is a true blessing
and inspiration to all. We will keep her in our hearts and prayers always.
The brightest stars always seem to fade the fastest, but they touch our hearts long after their light is gone. Let Alexandra's light shine on in your hearts forever.
WANTED TO SAY HOW SORRY I AM FOR YOUR LOSS. YOU HAVE A PRECIOUS ANGEL LOOKING DOWN FROM THE HEAVENS AS SHE OVER LOOKS THE WORK THAT SHE STARTED DOWN HERE ON EARTH. SHE LEFT IT IN GOOD HANDS BECAUSE SHE HAD A GOOD TEACHER TO HELP GUIDE HER WAY(HER PARENTS AND GOD) WITH A LOT OF STRONG FAITH. THEIR ARE NO WORDS THAT CAN EXPLAIN HOW YOU FEEL BUT JUST TO KNOW THAT YOU DID ALL THAT YOU COULD AND NOW SHE IS NO LONGER IN PAIN, JUST IN A BEAUTIFUL PLACE THAT ONE DAY WE WILL ALL SEE.
I WILL KEEP YOU IN MY PRAYERS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP ALEXANDRIA'S LEGACY GOING ON TO CURE THIS AWLFUL DISEASE.
Wow, I couldn't beleive she passed. I recently saw her on Oprah and little Alex touched my heart in so many ways! She is such a beutiful little girl girl with a big heart.
May God Bless the Scott family!
Deepest sympathies to the family and loved ones.
Words fail me.
Tears come to me.
May God bring comfort.
My deepest sympathy goes out to the Scott Family. Alex was a beautiful and brilliant little girl. I hope that her legacy of Alex's Lemonade lives on until we have found a cure.
To the Scott Family,
We cannot offer comfort with mere words, but please know how truly sorry we are for your loss. Alex was a billiant angel on earth, and will now continue her work at God's side. She was a true inspiration to all that knew her, knew of her, and the world is a better place because of her. May God grant you peace in knowing she is no longer in pain, and that she watches over you from above.
Henry, Jamie and Matthew Szkoda
I wanted to extend my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Alexandra. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
To the Scott Family:
No words can express how deeply sorry I am to hear about you losing your child and/or sister. It is rough but with God by your side you will be able to make it through this. Alexandra is truly in a better place where she is not suffering or hurting anymore everything is now cured. I know that none of this is helping but hold on to the memories tight don't let them go. She was truly a blessing while she was here and I am sure that she is going to send a blessing your way but you just haven't seen what it is going to be yet. Carry on her fundraisers don't let anyone stop you because I am sure she will be right by your side smiling that great smile she had. You now have a special angel to watch over you and I am sure she is sharing the memories she has had with you with all the angels above and telling them all about how much fun it was selling lemonade to help raise money to fight the battle she fought. I know that she had a rough battle. I lost my grandfather to cancer and some other illnesses back in November, so I know what you are going through but this was your child so it is going to be much harder. Just remember we can do all things through Christ which strenghts us. My prayers and thoughts are with your family at this time.
My deepest sympathy to each of you. She will be missed greatly by everyone. She touched so many of our lives with her courage.
I just passed through the UConn Coop and saw the notice of Alex's passing (I had been away). Know you are all continue in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Barbara
I was so sad to hear the news that Alexandra passed. May God always be with and those you love.
God has taken little Alexandra into His kingdom to be with all of His other little angels. Her life on earth, though short, has left a lasting impression on us all. Peace be with all of you.
GOOD BYE FOR NOW YOU ARE IN A BETTER PLACE NOW NO MORE PAIN FOR BUT STILL MUCH PAIN FOR EVERYONE WHO GETS TO SEE YOUR PERFECT SMILE. GOD LOVES US ALL AND WILL TAKE OF YOU NOW HOPE TO MEET YOU WHEN MY TIME COMES

today I heard the story of ALEX, be very happy that god gave you a daughter like her she is a angel, god gave you a great daughter for great perents, god bless you and you're family
I just read about Alexandra for the first time in the obituary column in our newspaper. I don't know why, but I felt compelled to write to you. I'm so sorry for your loss. I have a daughter who's turning five soon and it seems so clear to me after reading about Alex that life is beautiful. I promise to myself and my family to never take them for granted and live life with heart, just like Alex. Thanks to her!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dearest Scott Family...
I send you many hugs and tons of prayers...it is so hard to lose someone to death but to lose a child is the worse.She was an angel on earth...God sent her to do what she had to do and took her back to heaven....
I know your pain is horrible and I am sure you are thanking God for your precious Alexandra to now be out of pain....life is hard and deals us some terrible situations...."what does not kill us will make us stronger"..I live by this....God bless you all...my thoughts and prayers are with you..
Dear Scott Family,
Thank you for your gift to the world!
of such is the Kingdom of God.....
God be with you and may Alexandra's
legacy live on with the lemonade
stands all over America.
I am deeply sorry for your loss. Our family knows the pain and sadness you are feeling. We lost our granddaughter at age 2 1/2 suddenly and unexpectedly of what we later learned was neuroblastoma. Up until that day April 15, 2002, we had never heard of it. Our lives will never be the same and yet we feel so blessed that for that very short time, God allowed us to be her family.
Two songs have brought us lots of comfort. The first is as follows; It takes God and Time to heal your broken heart, God and Time to lift you up from where you are.... and the second song goes like this...my prayers have all been answered, I've finally arrived. The healing that had been delayed has now been realized. No one's in a hurry, there's no schedule to keep, we are all enjoying Jesus, just sitting at his feet. If you could see me now, I'm walking streets of gold...you wouldn't want me to ever leave this perfect place. What comfort to know that your angel and ours are at his side in the perfect place. God bless you and your family.
I was so touched when I first heard your little girls story. She accomplished more in her short life than so many older people. My heart and prayers are with you during this time- she truly was an angel.
Mr. & Mrs. Scott,
Always remember her Spirit and her Love it will last a life time. Always remember you will see each other again someday.
Wow-it really makes you realize the ability one tiny person has to make a difference in this world. No gesture is small if it makes an impact. God Bless her & those who follow in her footsteps.
Alexandra is truely an angle she will be missed and my heart goes out to the family of alexandra she made an impact on the nation and worldwide all for a great cause god bless you
Words seem so inadequate at this very sad time, however, everyone's thoughts and prayers are with you and your precious Alex. GOD BLESS.
The Scott Family:
What a beautiful little girl!! My heart is truly heavy...again, my 3 children ages: 11, 7 and 6 lost their father to cancer just under 6 months ago and it has been hard!
Like my oldest daughter said: "There's a hole in my heart forever, now I just look to the clouds and make out his face". Maybe you can do the same.
We now know that "Hank/Daddy" is now without pain and so is Alex. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!
She was truely an Angel sent straight from Heaven....to show others with Cancer to never ever give up and always have hope. God Bless her Parents and Loved Ones.
When life gave you lemons, you truly made lemonade and made others want to help.
A child is a bit of stardust,blown from the hand of God. Lucky the woman who felt the pangs of birth, for she has held a star. Forever a star in Gods' universe.
Mr. & Mrs. Scott,
To be absent from the body is to be in the presence of God. Her spirit and legacy will always be alive in your heart. Prayerfully,
For a life taken so young she made a big difference. She can say she did a good job. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
She accomplished a life time of work in 8 short years and touched the hearts of millions while doing so. I thank you and God for sharing her with us.
I am so sorry to read of your loss. When I saw the article in the newspaper, I wept bitterly. Partly because of your loss but also it flooded my mind with recent memories of the loss of my 2 year son. He also had cancer and died suddenly and unexpectedly just this past April. We all need to do more to stop this wicked disease. Your precious little one did more than her share. May God be with you and your family and may you find comfort in the fact that she now has it made, no pain, all happiness up there in heaven.
You have so much to be proud of! Your little angel has raised a nation-wide awareness that has helped and will help so many! I lost my grandad last year to cancer and I understand the pain; may God bless you all and all the childen Alex was able to help, what a triumph! Love and warm thoughts to all of you!
Love, Katie& Jeff Bourke
P.S I haven't stopped crying since I got the sad news!
She was such a beautiful little girl with a heart bigger than life. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. God has another Little Angel in Heaven. God Bless You.
Dear Scott Family,
Your little daughter inspired us to have a lemonade stand at Kimberly Hall South. When I found out that Alex passed away I was crushed. Alex was like no other child, she changed so many lives and will truly be missed. My residents and myself send our sympathy and want you to know that we are thinking of you.
Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your angel, Alex. She truly was, and will continue to be, an inspiration to everyone. God Bless your entire family.
To the Scott Family: To loose a child is hard enough but to watch such a young girl fight such a deadly decease and still yet be so brave is truly heartfelt. I believe she is with God and you will always have many fond memories of her. I believe you will see her again some day when you too go with God. My prayers are with you and your family. Remember Alex always and continue her fight to cure Childhood Cancer. Hopefully someday her dream will come true.
My heart goes out to you. A beautiful child of God you were trusted with for such a short time. God only gives special children to special parents. The story in the Atlanta Journal & Constitution was serine. I was saddened but at peace to read of how she left this earth on her journey home. She will be missed by all but one day reunited. God Speed.
May this Angel of God now rest in peace. I know you will miss her deeply, but keep her in your heart.
Dear Scott Family, I wish to give your family my deepest sympathy. I to lost a daughter 15 years ago but I know that she is in a much bettter place and is there waiting for me and people like your daughter.god bless you Betty J Rudy
It's amazing how God speaks through little children! Your sweet child was the voice of God. You will be in the prayers of all the faculty and children of Holy Family School in Manayunk!
I had just recently saw your daughter on TV and was amazed. She is truly a very special child and she has made such a huge difference. Each time I see her photo she brightens up my day and makes me realize anything is possible, she is an exceptional inspiration. You are truly blessed.
I saw this little angel on Oprah and she touched my heart as well as my 10 year old daughter's.I got the sad news by a phone call from my mother.We are all saddened to see this life be taken so young.All our our thought's are with you and the entire family at this sad time.She is truly an angel.
Mr. & Mrs Scott,
I am so very sorry for your loss, I lost my mom to Cancer about four years ago but I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child. You did a wonderful job raising a beautiful little girl who did an incredible job raising money for Pediatric Cancer research. Your family and Alex will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
My very sincerest sympathies.
Dear Liz, Jay, Patrick, Eddie and Joey,
So very sorry to hear of your loss. Alex is and will continue to be an inspiration to me and my family. We will pray for her and do something to help keep her spirit alive. God Bless you and your family and most of all Alexandra.
I don't know your family but, I just want to say I'm so sorry for your loss. I don't know the pain of losing a child but, I do know the pain of battling with cancer. My best friends baby was born with Hepatoblastoma (liver cancer) He is now 7 months old and just came home a month ago. It is so heart breaking watching what they go threw. As hard as it is losing her atleast you know she's not in pain anymore. She can finally be free from all the drugs & treatments they have to have. You now have a special angel watching over you & someday you will see her beautiful face again. I know I don't know her but, I am so touched by what a smart & giving little girl she is. Your daughter has touched the world. She can now fly with the angels. May god help to ease your pain as time goes on. God Bless you & your family in this time of need.
~~May this little angel rest in peace and my thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God bless you.~~
I am so sorry for your loss. I saw your daughter on the Oprah and was moved by everything she accomplished in her short life. I have raised lots of money for cancer research and belong to a group that raises money. Your daughter was an inspiration to all of us.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.
May God be with you and family love. Manon
May the Lord watch between me and thee, while we are absent, one from another. Amen! Amen! Amen
I recently saw your daughter on the Oprah Winfrey show. You have been blessed to have had such a wonderful person in your life, however short, keep all her memories close to your heart. God bless you all as you carry on her legacy.
To The Parents of Alex Scott,
I am so sorry to hear that Alex has passed away. I'm sure that nothing anyone can say or do right now will help ease your pain, but please try to take comfort in Gods love. He cares so much for us that every hair upon our heads are numbered. Gods ways are not our ways. There are things that we will never understand here but someday we will. Heaven - no more pain, only good things for Alex from now on. May God bless you.
with our deepest sympathy

My name is Josephine and though I have never met you or your daughter I recently heard her story and got goosebumps. She was a wonderful inspiration to all of us. I want to send my condolences to the family. On October 14th I will be doing the Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and my team and I would like to walk in honor of Alexandra Scott and her legacy.
Our thoughts are with you.
My condolences to the Scott Family. Alexandra was an angel on earth and now she has taken her place in heaven. My prayers are with the Scott Family because I know it's heartbreaking to loose a child. There's no more pain and suffering only peace with our heavenly father. She was a very brave little girl. She will be remembered always and you will see her again some day.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. We lost our daughter Emily in June. Emily and I have contributed to Alex's Lemonaide stand, because she wanted to help the other Kids. Know that you are not alone.
God bless your family at this time. Alex's life helped inspire many people in their journey in life. God saw her journey was complete and now she looks down on all of us. God be with you.
I am so sorry for your loss, it is felt by so many. What a beautiful little girl who was so successful in everything she did. She was an absolute miracle. God must have some very special work for her in heaven.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Alex was a very special person who touched many lives. I recently lost my nephew Evan on 04-03-04 to Neuroblastoma. We often would see Alex with her wagon at the hospital always full of smiles. Her courage and strength was an inspiration to all of us. GOD bless!
To The Family, I am truly sorry for your loss. Your daughter will continue to raise money for childhood cancers. Even though it may be too late for Alex, she will help many children in their fight against cancer. May you all have strength through this difficult time.My prayers are with you and your family.
What a beautiful little girl and a beautiful story. I will never pass another lemonade stand without buying a cup. You must have many wonderful memories of her. Always keep them right by your heart. God Bless you and your family.
I remember a line in a song that was played and sung at a memorial service a number of years ago: "Heaven Needed A Champion, That's Why HE took You." Alexandra was a real champion in every sense of the word. She's "The Champ" in Heaven now, looking down on all of us.
My heart goes out to the family of alexandra. I saw her on Oprah Show and I was moved at the determination of such a young girl. I am a cancer survival and her story was just so touching to me. May God Bless and Keep you all. I know that she's in a better place than we are. God needed her for his kingdom, there will be no more pain for her.
That precious little girl toouched so many hearts. I watched her on one of the talk shows on tv and I cried the whole time. May God be with here family.
We would like to send our deepest sympathy to your family.Alexandra was a little angel and now she is in Heaven looking over you.
Jay and Liz,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. As a fellow Elsevier employee, I learned of Alex and the lemonade stand earlier this year through a company email, and was glad I could help out at our St. Louis stand this summer. How proud you must be of her and how courageously she lived her life.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this time of grief.
My Deepest Sympathy to all of you.
My family is also struggling with this disease. My little 5 year old nephew TJ was diagnosed with Brain cancer in Feb of his year and has been in and out of Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia.
My God be with you all.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. In such a short time on earth your daughter has done so much. I am very proud of her and you should be too. Everytime I have a glass of lemonade I will think of Alex and be inspired by her. May God guide you through these difficult times.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, i have 6 children of my own and i cherish them with my life. your daughter was a brave little and she will be remembered in the hearts of many people who followed her story. you had a special little girl may god bless you and your family.
All of us at the West Hartford Public Library in West Hartford, Connecticut who had the privelege of knowing Alex and your family celebrate her life! We are all so proud to have known her sweet and smiling face, her courage and determination to be just a regular kid with her brothers and her friends. We have all learned so much from her - her indomitable spirit, her love for her immediate and extended family and her zest for life. Those of us who knew her and those who knew of her were blessed and will forever hold her in our hearts. In loving support and friendship, Carol Waxman and the staff at the Children's Room of the West Hartford Public Library
Sono venuta a conoscenza di questa storia solamente adesso che questo angelo è volato in cielo,ma mi è bastato per capire quanto c'è da imparare ancora dal nostro cammino...Alexandra deve essere un esempio per tutti noi,per un mondo migliore,per imparare ad apprezzare veramente il significato della vita.Grazie
Though I never had the opportunity to know Alex, and have only heard of her courageous battle in the news, I send my deepest sympathy of her passing to her family and friends. What a true hero and inspiration she has been. She has touched my heart deeply. Having lost my own husband and father to terrible illnesses, I pray that one day research may wipe out the awful sicknesses we all encounter. May she rest in peace.
I watched your daughter on the Oprah show and she made such an impression. My thoughts and prayers are with you. My husband and I have always made it a habit to never ever pass a lemonade stand without stopping and through your daughter we will forever remember her and you when we stop at those stands! What a legacy!
Alex, was a wonder and teacher to all of us! We all could learn alot from her and her actions. I believe that God's Little Angel was here to teach how we should act and live life.
May God comfort and keep you during your time of loss! God Bless you!
We understand, we too lost our 6 year old son Jensen. Alex will be your first thought with every sunrise and your last with each sunset. Children teach us so much about life if we take the time to listen.They are pure in heart and see the world though different loving eyes, the sight we all should see. She has given hope to so many and though you will always grieve to touch her hand and stroke her cheek she really is only a breath away. May you and your children find peace in the memories of Alex and be proud to have known an angel.
We hurt so deeply because we love so deeply. Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy to you in your loss.
What a beautiful sweet picture of your baby. I don't know the story behind her, but nevertheless, my prayers are with you the family and for her. I cannot even imagine your loss. I am so sorry. She has to be in a better place where there is no hurt or sorrow. May God bless you and give you the strength to go on.
I am so very sorry to hear about Alex, I have been following her journey very closely in the news. Even as a 35 year old military veteran, I found tears welling in my eyes Monday morning when I heard of her passing. She has given the world such a wonderful gift not only terms of her unbelievable fundraising, but the gift of hope, kindness, and sincerity unparalleled in my lifetime. I have had (and will continue to have) a cut-out picture of her on my desk for inspiration, and the world will never forget her courage, determination, and bravery; she has touched our hearts and changed my life forever. She is an example of all that is good in the world, and the world is a much better place for having had her. My sincerest prayers go out to Alex and to your family, and thank you for allowing us to share in her life. She will always be part of my thoughts and prayers.
I read about your daughter and was very touched. She was a blessing and a gift that was freely shared. She will forever remain in the hearts of many. May you be comforted just knowing how special she was, and the loving memories you will have of her.
Dear Jay,Liz and family
We were sorry to hear of Alex's passing. She was a very special girl. I remember when she was born and when she was first diagnosed. She was such a trooper. She used to come into the Co-Op with her walker and just walk around smiling and say HI to all of us. She always show off her new hats and just made everyone that new her happy. You are truly blessed to have had such a special girl.We
will never forget her and thank you for the privilege of getting to know her. Take care and keep up the good work.
Cheri & Leo
My mother also passed away Sunday. As my mother loved children so much, I would like to think that she took little Alex's hand and walked with her through the gates of heaven.
The story about Alex has really touched my heart. I am very SORRY to hear of her death. She is now one of Gods little ANGELS.My prayers are with you and your family.
I'm so sad to hear about you & so feel happy to know you!
you gave your big heart to people all over the world!!!
Dear Alex, You are an inspiraion and a truly remarkable person. I am sure God is so happy to have you in heaven with him. While I never met you in person, you have made a tremendous impact on my life and taught me what it is to a be a strong and brave individual. I intend to keep your legacy close to my heart.
I was amazed at the courage of someone so young and the ability to take charge of an illness that many adults would find hard to cope with.
What a testimony! Keeping her family in my prayers.
May God give you comfort. I read about her and know that she was brave till the end. I share your pain. God Bless You and your family.
Dear Scott Family, we do not know each other, but after seeing Alexandra on the Oprah show and how brave she was in doing so much. She made me realize that more people need to take the time to really do something like she did to help people who need the help.
God Bless You and Your family
I am so sorry to hear about your daughter Alexandra. I also lost my 3 1/2 year old daughter to Neuroblastoma in 1995. My heart goes out to your family. My thoughts and Prayers are with you. God Bless You.
Alexandra is truly an Angel sent from GOD to teach us how to love, care, and have hope in ourselves! She is definitely an inspiration and a fighter! It saddens me that she pasted aways, my heart goes out to her family and friends! She will not be forgotten and she will live through our hearts, family, friends, and everybody she touched with her courage! I didn't know her well but I will miss her...She has left us too early...But her strength and courage will live on!
God Bless you sweetheart! You were an Angel here and that is exactly what you are up there! Watch over your parents,and your family & friends, you know they are sad. She touched sooooo many people. You really are an ANGEL!! God Bless!!
When I first saw Alex on Oprah, I thought, "What a remarkable young girl!" She has given so much back to people who helped her...just to help others. God Bless the Scott family, you are in my prayers.
Dear Scott's, So sorry to hear about your loss. Our daughter also has Neuroblastoma and Alex is an inspiration to us all. She has touched more lives than you know! God bless you all. Patty Searle
Alex touched my heart and inspired me to take charge of what matters in life - love, respect, and a good cause. May God bless Alex and her family.
Lemonade now has a new meaning to our family. Each time we take a drink we feel happy thinking about a little girl with such a big heart that she touched so many people of all walks. Heaven is now a better place. God be with you.
My prayers are with you and your family during your time of sorrow. Alex will always be remembered for her lemonade stand and how at the young age of 8, she was dedicating herself and her life to helping others. She was a gift from God that was sent here to do a job and when she completed her task, God took her back home with him. She is back home now and will hurt no more.
To the Scott Family, I am so sorry to learn that your precious daughter Alex had past away. I had seen her on the Oprah show. she caught my attention because my seven year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer on May 1, 2003. I was so touched by her story and I was so sadden to hear about her death. You had such a beautiful daughter. She had truly earned her wings. She will always remain in my thoughts as I walk this road with my daughter. May God give you strength.
"...you're in the arms of the angels, may you find some comfort there..." God bless you and your family. Your little girl will live forever in our hearts.
There is a country song where the last verse goes: Little girl, on daddy's lap, hidin' her disease with a baseball cap, you can turn the channel, most people do, but what if you were sittin' in her daddy's shoes?, what if she's an angel, sent here from Heaven, and she's making certain that we're doin' our best, to take the time, to help one another, brother are ya gonna pass that test?, you can go on with your day to day, tryin' to forget what you saw in her face, knowing deep down you could have been her saving grace, what if she's an angel?
Alex was an angel, and she showed us how to make a difference one cup at a time. Now we must carry on her legacy of hope so that other children will not have to suffer with this dreaded monster that Alex fought so long. We must continue to sell lemonade and to tell her story so that this precious angel, lent to us for such a short time, may never be forgotten. Thank you Liz and Jay, Patrick, Eddie, and Joey. Thank you for sharing your daughter and sister with the world. We are all better for having known her, even if we never met her in person. God bless!
I first heard of your daughter's story on the Oprah story an was so impressed that a child would have so much will for a cause. She is the most awesome example of how the rest of us should be in this world. She is now with her maker and you will have nothing but warm thoughts of your lil Alex. God Bless you all.
Is there a better, more poignant lesson than this one:
"Selling lemonade is fun," Alex said when she was 6 and not yet as wiped out by the disease and her treatments. "Giving money to the hospital is the best."
Enjoy what you do. Share it with others.
Truly an inspirational life, and a message that will live on.
Alexandra is an inspiration to everyone. Every life is touched in some way by cancer and for this child to spread joy as she did puts a peace in my heart toward my loved ones who are in heaven too. I never met Alexandra, but her story has touched my heart.
Alexandra, I praise god for your courage and love for others. God needed another voice in His choir. tell Him we love you too. God bless and keep your family looking up til we see Him face to face..aubrey
I very sorry about your little sweetpea. She's now with the angels up above. She will always be with you. Alex is now out of pain. GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY
Alexandra is such a pretty angel and I am sure she has got that Lemonade stand started with all of Gods angels in heaven. God Bless Alexandra family. Remember she will never be far from you because she will live on in your hearts. My prayer are with you.
I am absolutely heart-broken over Alexandra's passing. May her goodness shine on all of us.
Dear Scott Family, we do not know each other but I feel like I knew Alexandra. She was a very brave and courageous young girl. My deepest condolences go out to your entire family. She is at peace now and watching over you all from above. God Bless You,
May Alex's precious light continue to shine through her Lemonade Stands! Be proud of yourselfs and the inspiring legacy she leaves behind. Peace be with all those who love and remember Alex.
Your beautiful little angel on earth is now a beautiful little angel in Heaven. She will always watch over you, and remain in your hearts. God Bless you all, and may we all learn from Alex's wonderful life.
Please know that you and your family are in our prayers. We met you and Alex at CHOP when our son was a patient on the oncology unit with Alex. She was a remarkable person who shared her love and wisdom with the world. And you too are remarkable in your sharing of her with the rest of us. My thoughts will be with you and your children as you greive and adapt to your new lives. I hope to be able to add to the lemonaid stand legacy in the coming months and years.
I am truly inspired by Alex's story. It amazes me that someone of such a young age could have such a kind heart. She will long be remembered for her diligence. May her family be blessed and comforted for their loss, but remain proud to have such an amazing daughter.
I was moved by your daughter when I saw her on TV. I am sorry to hear of her passing. Please know she touched a world of people and will continue to do so. God bless you thru this difficult time.
God Bless Alexandra for all of her good deeds. I recently saw her on television and I was absolutely devistated when I found out about her passing. May God bless her and keep her safe.
"Only the good die young...."
I first saw Alex on the Today show and was so touched by her sweet face. She will always be a shining example of courage and hope. Thank you Alex for sharing your life with all of us. You are a true hero. My prayers for peace are with you all.
I saw Alex on Oprah's TV show. She was such an inspiration. Even those of us who didn't know her personally will miss her spirit. God bless her.
For a little girl, Alex touched an amazing number of lives and we are all the better for it. The lessons she taught us will be with us forever as will her memory. In sympathy,

To the Scott Family,
Your daughter was a true hero and inspiration. I'm so sorry for your loss. God Bless you.
I have no children of my own, and have never met you. I have however,like millions of others, followed Alex's story.
Your daughter was a very brave little girl, and many adults can learn from a small child's can do/positive attitude. Now little Alex can rest with the angels. Her legacy is a great one, and it will survive many generations to come.
Again, I am sorry for your loss.
Alexandra Scott seemed like such a nice little girl. She will be missed by many but never forgotten.
My prayers are with her family and friends.
Alexandra has touched the hearts of people everywhere. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
What a good, strong soul. We weep with you on the passing of this precious girl.

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. But something that always help me get through sorrow is something the preacher said when God called my aunt home. "HE ALWAYS PICK THE PRETTIEST FLOWERS FIRST". May the pain fade away and the memories last forever.

To the Scott Family,
My deepest condolences on the loss of your daughter, Alex. Her spirit and heart will live on, and I know you are proud of what she accomplished in her short life: More than most people six times her age. And I hope that maybe,in the lifetime of her brothers, we can find a cure for this horrible disease.
Jay, Liz & Boys,
I am very saddened to hear about Alex. She has touched my heart and the hearts of many. I never met Alex but heard so much about her from her Dad. My condolences and prayers are with the Scott family. May God give you comfort and the strength to get through this most difficult time.
TO THE FAMILY OF THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL, I remember at my first daughters christining, the priest saying "we think these are our children But they are not. They are Gods and he has given them to us to love on earth til he calls them back". Please try to keep in mind you still have Alexandra she is now your own gorgeous guardian angel.May God help soften your sorrow each day.Barbie

Hugs From Heaven
When you feel a gentle breeze
Caress you when you sigh
It's a hug sent from Heaven
From a loved one way up high.
If a soft and tender raindrop
Lands upon your nose
They've added a small kiss
As fragile as a rose.
If a song you hear fills you
With a feeling of sweet love
It's a hug sent from Heaven
From someone special up above.
If you awaken in the morning
To a bluebird's chirping song
It's music sent from Heaven
To cheer you all day long.
If tiny little snowflakes
Land upon your face
It's a hug sent from Heaven
Trimmed with Angel lace.
So keep the joy in your heart
If you're lonely my dear friend
Hugs that are sent from Heaven
A broken heart will mend
I hope this poem takes a little of the pain and grief out of the hearts of all those who loved your Alexandra.... Her Legacy will live on!
My Dearest Family
Some things I'd like to say; but first of all, to let you know that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from Heaven, where I dwell with God above; where there's no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy, just because I am out of sight. Remember that I am with you every morning, noon, and night. That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me, and He said, "I welcome you." "It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on. I need you here so badly, as part of My Big Plan; there's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man." Then God gave me a list of things He wished for me to do. And, foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you. And I will be beside you every day and week and year, and, when you're sad, I'm standing there to wipe away the tear. And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night. When you think of my life oN earth, and those loving years, because you're only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry-it does relieve the pain. Remember, there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned; But, if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over, I am closer to you now than I ever was before. And to my very many friends, trust God knows what is best. I'm still not far away from you-I'm just beyond the crest. There are rocky roads ahead of you, and many hills to climb. But, together we can do it, taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy, and I'd like it for you too, that as you give unto the world, so the world will give to you. If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night, "My day was not in vain." And now I am contented that my life, it was worthwhile; knowing, as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile. So, if you meet somebody, who is down and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. When you are walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind. And when you feel the gentle breeze, or the wind upon your face, that's me giving you a great big hug, or just a soft embrace. And when it's time for you to go, from that body to be free, remember you're not going, you are coming here to me. And I will always love you from that land way up above. Will be in touch again soon. P.S., God sends his love.
I would like to express my condolences to Alexandra's entire family and all of her many frinds. She displayed incredible courage. Despite what she went through, to think of others and to start the lemonade stands to raise money and awareness for cancer research to help others, that took courage that most adults let alone a young child could never display. My grandmother died of cancer 25 years ago, I knew what kind of pain she was going through. To go through all the pain Alex did and to be able to always have that smile on her face, that was unbelievable. She was a special human being, one whose cause will not and should not ever be forgotten.
I would like to tell you that I am so sorry for your lost. I hope that your daughter's dream of finding a cure for cancer will come true. My husband died of cancer at the age of 37. He fought as hard as your daughter did. He died in May. He left behind a beautiful 2 year old son. Your daughter is an inspirtation to everyone. May God be with you during this most difficult time
What a courageous and inspiring young girl. She will be missed by those who knew her and all of us who wish we did. God Bless You All
Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. Alex was an amazing little girl and will never be forgotten, but will definately be missed. Her life and her story are a true inspiration to others.
I am sorry about your loss. May heaven smile upon you.
How is it that the young are the bravest and most courageous? How do they fight the toughest Battles?
I was truely shocked to hear the news. She did so much for cancer awareness. She truely will be missed by so many.
Mr. and Mrs. Scott and Family,

Love, Tasha and Family
Alexandra is one of the reasons that keeps a lot of us going everyday. She will be missed in body, but will be here in spirit.
I'm sorry for your loss.

I heard about Alexandra Scott earlier today and I was amazed how much she accomplished in her life. This girl will be missed by all that cared for her and she will be watching us with her sweet smile.
My deepest sympathys to your family Alexandra.You were a true hero. oxoxoxox
Thank you for sharing such a beautiful child. She has accomplished much and is an inspiration to us all. God Bless you and watch over you until you meet again.
To the Scott Family,
My sincere condolence at the loss of your daughter, Alex. From what I read about her, she was a special light in the lives of so many and brought hope to all stricken with cancer. I can only hope her work will continue and be comforted by the fact that God is taking good care of her now. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Scott Family,
We are so sorry for your loss, we never had a chance to meet your daughter but the first time that we saw her on t.v. we felt that we already knew her. She is an inspiration to many and for us she has given us strength and hope to keep fighting for a cure. I know this may sound crazy but when I first saw Alex she reminded me of my mother alot, different in age but a heart of gold. She reminded me to live again & to do all that I possibly can to help this disease. She will forever be an angel, a movie star and a saint in our eyes. The benefit we are having on August 21 in Glenolden Park is in memory of my mom with all the proceeds going to Alex's Lemonade Stand Fund, now the benefit will also be ine memory of Alex too. Two special people with hearts of gold. We hope and wish the best for you and your family. May God Bless you and we'll keep Alex's spirit alive one cup at a time.
Albert & Natalie Gigliotti
Having lost my 4 year old son in 1992 to the same type of cancer, my thoughts and prayers are with you. WIth the grace and wisdom these children have at such a young age, I can't help but feel they are angels born in the flesh to teach us what life really is.
I remember in times like this what Ann Landers once said: "If you were given the choice to know and love this child...or to never know her at all...knowing how your heart would break with her loss...what would your choice be?" Of course we all know the answer, Alex was a special child and an angel here on Earth. My heart goes out to everyone who misses her. You were blessed to have known her.
My heart was breaking as I watched Alex on the Today Show. She was such an amazing little girl. I know she was a great source of strength to your family during her tragic illness. Now she can rest in peace, painfree...all the former things have passed away. No more sickness. May God give you strength and comfort now and the many years to come. I know you will miss her terribly.
I just wanted to write to say that, although people think we military personnel are heroes, this young girl showed as much strength, honor, courage and commitment than any sailor, marine, army, coast guard or air force pilot in the Armed Services. Her spirit will live on in all of us. She is a true hero in every aspect of the word.
To The Scott Family
My deepest Sympathy's to all of you. Alex, was such a kind child, when you saw her, she always had a smile on her face. She will be missed greatly.
Will keep all of you in my prayers.
When a child dies we all grieve.Alex was a special child who has inspired a whole region with her courage,and what a smile!God bless you alex and tell jesus we love him.
Our condolences to the family and friends of beautiful little Alex. May God's comfort be with you at this time.
What a brave daughter you have. She is going to make quite a contribution to heaven also. God must have needed a little organizer! Remember, no more pain for Alexandra. Your pain will go away someday when you rejoin her in heaven also. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
I am so sorry for your loss. I saw Alenander on the Oprah show. Having had three girls of my own, I know how special they are. I know your hearts are so very heavy. Maybe in time your sorrow will ease a bit..you must feel so proud of her and all she was able to accomplish during her short life. My prayers are with your family at this time.
Alexandra was able to touch so many people with her desire to stamp out this dreaded illness.
Just wanted you to know that people in Virginia Beach were thinking about you. God Bless.
I just read today that Alex has joined our lord in Heaven. I sit right now with chills as I think about what a courageous and unselfish little angel she was. She was so much wiser than her 8 years. Her selflessness and devotion to her cause will live on forever as she will in heaven. Rest in peace Alex. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this sad time.
Alexandra, is a most beautiful little angel. Our prayers are with the family & friends that will miss her greatly. God Bless!
Please accept my sincere condolenceson the loss of such a sweet little girl.I am sure that God is with her right now,looking down on her family,and watching over them.Be assured that Alex will be in my prayers,and may God bless You all.
I have always believed that there are individuals among us that are still "attached to God." Reading about Alex has confirmed that she was one of those individuals, and God had a special mission for her. She has fulfilled that mission and has returned to God. Our lives have been touched by God through Alex's presence among us. We should all rejoice in knowing that she has made our lives more meaningful. God Bless you for allowing us to know this angel of God for just a little while.
My deepest condolences to the Scott family. The work that your daughter accomplished is just unbelievable and incredibly moving. I hope that with the help of God and everyone around your family, you pull through this tragedy. God Bless you and Alexandra.
What an angel you are. Soar high with the other angels. Please say hello to my Dakota for me. Hugs!
Your daughter is truly an angel sent from Heaven to teach us all strength and compassion. Take comfort in knowing that Jesus is hugging her tightly and all her pain is gone....God Bless you for giving such loving, tender care to her and providing her guidance as she accomplished what she was sent here to do. The world is a better place today because of Alexandra Scott.
I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful little girl. As a fellow Wynnewood resident, I have heard and read much about your incredible daughter. I wish I could make things better for you. I wish I could make things better for Alex. I am donating $100 to your daughter's cause, and my law firm is going to donate money, as well. Your daughter's legacy is to never give up, no matter what. Please remember this as you grieve. Again, I am so sorry.
To The Scott Family,
I was terribly saddened to hear of Alex's passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God keep you.
I greatly feel for your loss, a real brightness of Joy in todays world!!
May God be with you all during this time. Just remember that she is where there is no more pain or sorrow. She truly was a gift from God.
Rest in Peace little one. You did so much good for cancer research with your lemonade stands. You were an angel on earth, and now an angel in heaven. Cancer is such a horrible disease. It robbed the world of a beautiful little girl who gave so much of herself to help others. I pray your mom and dad will find peace. Bless your heart little one.
Your little lemonade princess touched countless hearts on her journey. What a tribute to her family and friends for all that you did and will continue to do to help make Alex's dreams come true. While her eight years on this earth were much too short, Alex left her mark on this world. She reminded all of us that one person can make a difference...and that one 50 cent glass at a time a $1,000,000 is a possible goal.
May you gain strength in knowing that many are praying for you...and that always and forever will your sweet Alex be remembered.
our deepest sympathy on the death of your daughter.
I am sorry I never met you in person. My name is Cherelle High I live in Chase City VA. Iam seven yrs.old I was extremely saddened by the news of the loss. May God be with you today and always
Earth has no sorrows that Heaven cannot heal. I Pray that your family will find comfort in knowing that God only pick the most beautiful flowers from the garden. Alex will be continuing her job up in heaven where she was needed. May God bless and keep you always.
You will be in my prayers.
My deepest condolences go out to your family in this time of loss. I followed your daughter’s courage’s story over the past year and as many people have said she was truly an angel sent from god. She accomplished more than most people could even hope for. She was a blessing and inspiration to many.
God bless this little angel. God used her to bring comfort,hope and information to other children with cancer. Her beautiful spirit will live on.
We will miss you, and hope the lemonade stands continue in your memory.
Despite the short time Alex spent on this earth, she did so much good and inspired so many. I wrote a story about a little girl and her family who set up a stand in June as part of the nationwide event. You would be proud of them and the many, many people who came by to donate and offer their prayers and support. Please accept my deepest condolences.
May all God's love and support be with you at this very sad time. My prayers are with you and your family. Alex is/was an inspiration.
To The Family of Alex,
What a triumphant battle for Alex. What a wonderful Blessing He has given you in raising such a brave soul. I pray that you find comfort in God's love as Alex surely has. May you continue to do the Lord's work which Alex has begun. I know He will keep His protective hedge around you and Alex's extended family at Children's Hospital. Sleep Well Brave One For You Truly Deserve The Rest in His House.
I am very sad for Alex because she was in my school, and my Brownies troop. I would have gone to her Lemonade Stand but I had my birthday party that day. I am very sorry for her.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILTY
ON THE LOSS OF YOUR LITTLE ANGEL. SHE IS TRULY IN A BETTER PLACE.
Alex is a legacy not to be forgotten. My prayers and condolences go out to you, her family.
what a beautiful child you are and may the lemonade stand live on with your memory
Alexandra, you are such a precious, beautiful, courageous, strong willed little girl and filled with so much divine faith. You are an extraordinary little girl that has shown and given inspiration to the entire nation. My sincere condolences to your Mother and Father; she will always be remembered for her strength, courage, faithfulness and lemonade. That precious little angel is now resting peacefully in the arms of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. She is truly an angel "of God" and "from God". My prayers and blessings go out to you Alex; your Mom & Dad. We will never forget you and your amazing accomplishments in your sweet young life. WE LOVE YOU ALEX!!!!
I am sorry to hear about your lost, my son died of cancer in 96, she is in better place and god be with you..
God bless you and your family; I was deeply moved by your little girl's story. Your little angel lived a fuller life than most of can ever dream.
Words cannot express the pain that you feel with the loss of your daughter Alex. I can honestly say I know your pain, last year at this time I lost my daughter Katie to the ugly cancer Neuroblastoma. As Alex touch so many lives, so did my Katie. I pray for God's comfort, strength and peace to be present with you daily. May God richly bless you with awesome memories that you won't forget and that will live on with Alex's legacy. God truly has precious angels that come to be with us on earth for such a time. I pray that your angel's story will live on forever as will my angel. I'm sure our angels are having the time of their life....no more pain and suffering...just lots of laughter and joy to be in the presence of Jesus. God bless your family. I look forward to the day we will be reunited again. Psalms 91
Jay, Liz and boys,
I was extremely saddened by the news. Although I never met Alex, I heard so much about her from you Jay I felt that I know her. I loved some of the funny stories you told us about Alex. I know that she will be greatly missed. You are in my prayers.
Our thoughts & prayers are with your family. An inspiration to all of us.
Your daughter's acts of selflessness and concern for others at such a tender age gives me hope for the future.
Her journey is not ended, just continuing along a different path.
No words can lessen your pain right now, but her actions should bring you pride and joy.
My sister Christina was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at 9 months old and know the pain and hardship. Thank you for sharing Alexandra with the world. Please accept my condolences and prayers for your family.She is an angel.
Dear Liz, Jay and family,
Alex touched a place of generosity and love in the hearts of so many. Thank you for sharing her with us. We share your loss and offer you the support of our love and prayers.
An inspiration to us all.
Sometimes God sends his angels down to be an example to all of us about how we should live. Mission accomplished Alexandra. God bless you and give your family strength in this difficult hour.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Scott
As a special educator who has worked with very special children, I wanted you to know how really unique Alex was. She touched many hearts all over the country for cancer research but the reality was much more. She has affected the hearts of so many people and inspired us, to continue on. I had hoped to have my multiply-handicapped students carry on for her. So we shall. I am deeply sad she has lost her personal and spiritual battle. May we all remember her! Many of my students make a voyage to CHOP weekly so I will keep her in my heart and think of her!
This is one of the hardest things to go through. MY heart and prayers go out to your family. You daughter was a Angel of God, always remember that. I know that one day there will be a cure for this horrible disease, just think she is one of the reasons that they found it.
I have followed Alex's story and her lemonade stand for several years now. I feel as though I have lost her, too. My heart and prayers go out to her parents and family.
Alex brought her kindness and caring to a world when some of us needed it most. I feel blessed to have taken a small part in her fund raiser for other children. I'll look for Alex's Lemonade Stand next June to feel her presence and recall her sweet face.
May God watch over this little angel and may she have warm, beautiful days in which to play.
To her siblings, I wish you peace.
Barbara Strauss (Cinnaminson, NJ)
Alexandra's life was a true inspiration. My deepest condolences to her family- you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank you Alex for showing so many of us adults how to live life and seize each day. You have given heaven a beatiful angel to love and embrace. My prayers for your family to enjoy and remember all the joy you brought to so many lives.
I am sorry for your loss. Please know that Alexandra may be gone from this world, but she is now serving a greater purpose. What wonderful parents you are to have raised such an inspirational little girl. May God bless and keep you.
I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of such an amazing and inspirational little soul. I wish I had known her story, strength, will and determination throughout her fight. My family has recently mourned the loss of my father due to cancer and know of the bittersweet emotions of losing a loved one who has fought so bravely. The Lord has done amazing work through your little angel and is now comforting her for such a job well done.
I will pray for your family at this difficult time. Peace be with you.
Perhaps they are not the stars
But rather openings in heaven
Where the love of our lost one
Pours through and shines down
To let us know they are happy.
~ Eskimo Legend
My entire family has fallen victim to cancer including my mother a year ago. I can only hope to have the same strengh and courage as your daughter going forward in this fight. What an amazing young girl who has made such an impact.
MAY GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AT THIS, THE LORD HAS HER IN HIS ARMS, SHE IS ONE OF HIS ANGEL A HEAVENLY MESSENGER
Our 8 yr. old daughter had Neuroblastoma and is currently in remission. Alex and people like her are partially responsible for this being a possibility. Thank you for sharing her story. May she forever be remembered for the differences she made-not only in the NB world, but everywhere. She accomplished great things in her short life. Rest in peace, sweet Alex.
Alexandra did more in her short life than most of us have accomplished as adults. May her life serve to inspire the good in all of us. May her memory live on in our hearts as we seek the good in ourselves by doing as she did and reach out to help others.
To the Scott family, please accept our condolences. Please find comfort in our Lord as you will with each other. Alexandra's spirit lives on through all the people she has touched.
Before moving to Roswell, I was vactioning in Philadelphia with my family. We had seen Alex featured on Oprah so we made sure we stopped at her stand. Even though I prefer pink lemonade, there was something special about the blend she sold and I will always be fond of her courage
I am so saddened by your daughter's passing. My grandaughter was born 3 months ago with Neuroblastoma and we know the pain and loss you are feeling. I just hope my grandaughter can make a difference in this world like your daughter did. God Bless you and keep you in his care.
We will all miss you ALexandra you were the advocate for cancer patients in the deleware valley you were the angel for all to see. God bless you Alex, and may your lemonade stand stay forever open in the United States of America.
Alexandra had acomplished so much in the past 8 years and had accomplished more than most of us achieve in our lifetime. She was a gorgous little girl with a big heart who turned a negative part of her life into a positive, and along the way, she touched many hearts of those who heard her story. My condolences go out to her family and friends who I'm sure will think of her often.
I would like to express my condolences to the Scott family. Alexandria had qualities that all should aspire to attain. If the world would follow her example, life would be much more peaceful. She will be missed.
even though i knew little of her, i send my deepest and most sincere condolescences to the family of Alexandria Scott, from the news she seemed special at heart and a child with a good will to try, even when the odds were against her, although it hurts be proud shes in a better place now.... stay strong!!!!
Last month while I was having my nails done, I met Alex's aunt. She was planning her wedding the end of August and trying to make arrangements to keep Alex comfortable during the outside ceremony. This was the first I heard of Alex and her lemonade stand.
My sympathy to her aunt and parents.
She will always be remembered for her bravery, wisdom and inspiration.
My heart goes out to your family. Your daughter showed us that angels come in all sizes. I'm sure God has an amazing plan for her in heaven.
Bless this baby's sweet little heart. She was, no doubt, what Jesus wants everyone to be. An angel on earth - now an angel at His side...My sincere condolences to her family.
Alexandra and your family will be in our prayers.
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS MAY THE ANGELS GUIDE AND KEEP YOU LITTLE ONE!!!! YOUR VOICE WILL GO ON FOREVER:)
I was saddend this morning when I heard the news of Alex's death. I cannot begin to know how you feel, but please know that she is safe in God's arms and she made a difference in her eight years. I will keep you forever in my prayers.
MY HUSBAND AND I KNOW THE LONG ROAD YOU HAVE TRAVELED. OUR 8 YEAR OLD SON, MATHEW, DIED FROM LEUKEMIA. ISN'T IT AMAZING WHAT OUR CHILDREN CAN TEACH US?
YOU WILL BE IN OUR PRAYERS THAT YOUR FAITH IN OUR LORD GIVES YOU THE STRENGTH TO TRAVEL THE ROAD AHEAD. ALEXANDRA IS AN INSPIRATION TO ALL.

Alexandria made a difference in her eight years. How many people can say this during their lives. There are no words that can comfort you during this time, but you should be very proud parents.
All I can think of is. What a child. So much to say and not knowing how.
Love to all of you.
To Mr. and Mrs. Scott and family:
Thank you so much for sharing Alex and her story with the world. As many others have written today, I was so inspired by Alex and her courage. I only hope that the impact that she has made on others will help comfort you during this time.
My thoughts and prayers are with Alex and your family. What an amazing little girl!
God Bless You All-
What an inspiration Alex has been to
so many of us. With all that she had to deal with daily, she had the vision to step outside of her world and to try to improve life for other children with cancer through her fund raising.
She will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Please know that Alexandra has made a difference and she will always be remembered.
I just wanted to pass on my condolences on your loss. Alex was a very brave little girl. She is at peace now and watching over you.
My deepest sympathies to your family on the loss of your angel, Alexandra. As I struggle to deal with the brain cancer my sister is battling, I take comfort knowing that such a little person as Alexandra can inspire the world to take awareness of this disease and make a difference in others lives. She is truly a remarkable human being. May God bless you.
My heart fell this morning, I was unaware of this angels untimely death until reading the newspaper this morning. A grown man getting teary eyed at 5:30 am while in a gym really highlights how Alex has affected people like me who never met her. I've closely followed her story over the years and it makes me proud to have this person in our lives. As a father of a young daughter I could never imagine what it was like to watch as your daughter grows weak until she leaves us for a better place. But you can be assured that her short time on the earth has influenced people from all over the country and probably the world. My heart felt condolences to you and your family. My only regret is that I never had a chance to tough the face of god in this little girl. God Bless you Alex ....
Thank you Alex, for making a difference. While my wife Stephanie and I are saddened by your passing, we are glad your pain is over. God bless.
Thank you, Alexandra, for your courage, will and bravery. You lived more of a life in your brief time here than most of us ever will. God bless.
To the Scott's.
Your daughter did a wonderful job at looking at the ups in life while she was on this earth. Don't look at this as a time to grieve. Look at it as a time to rejoice for she is home and very comfortable looking down on you. Good bless your whole family. I am praying for you.
What a courageous child! Heaven truly has a special angel now. May God bless and comfort the Scott family now and always.
We are so sorry to hear that Alex passed away. She was a special little girl who brought and will continue to bring hope to millions of people. Our condolences go out to the family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
I am the grandmother of two young children ages 2 and 4. My heart and prayers are extended to you at this time. I have been following Alexandra for the past few years first as a personal interest as a parent/grandmother and as a representative of Lower Merion School District. I will remember Alexandra for the sweet, unselfish, loving child she will always be remembered as.

Be my strength when I weaken......
My courage, when I fear.........
Help me to know that it is your hand holding mine through all the minutes of all the hours of this day......
And when night falls, grant that I may sleep in your Love and Peace... Amen..............
May God Bless you and your family! Alexandra had a goal in life at an early age and she has accomplished it. She will definately always be remembered and loved. Rest in Peace Angel!
My sincerest condolences on the death of your beloved daughter. Know that she is now whole and pain-free and with our Heavenly Father.
I seen your beautiful daughter on Oprah and I was very touched to see how she was doing such a great job. May her dream continue to live on, forever. God Bless you and your family.
God bless this dear, young child. May we all have the same courage and faith in our lives as Alexandra did.
My condolences to Alex's family. I photographed Alex in 2003 for the Inquirer as she was preparing her lemonade stand. She was such a pleasure to meet. Again, my sympathies to all her loved ones.
Like many today, I am saddened to hear of your family and our community's shared loss of Alex.
However, for what it is worth, reading about Alex and her struggles, ideas, and successes this morning has reaffirmed my belief that we can make a difference if we only look around and try.
Take comfort in knowing that today many others are also reevaluating what is imporant to them; family, friendship, community, as they hear the sad news of her passing.
I can't think of anything this country (and for that matter the world in general) needs to think about more...
My thoughts go out to the Scott family on the loss of their daughter Alexandra. Her courageous fight and determintaion will forever be embedded in the hearts and lives of those she has touched.
My heart goes out to Alexandra's family.
She was a special kid, who left her mark on the world. She will never be forgotten. Please continue the fund raising for research in her memory...Alexandra would insist on it:-)
I am so sorry to read about Alexandra. She gave hope to so many, and as Jesus said the little children shall lead. You are all in our prayers.
Your daughter was our gift from God. She is now at peace. Keep your faith strong and someday you will be with her again. Remember, she is only sleeping.
With sincere condolences,
Please accept my sincere condolences. Alex was a true fighter and an inspiration to all. She is now a special angel sent to watch over all who are not as strong as she was. Your family will stay in my prayers.
Me and my husband Philip are very sorry for your loss. Although we didn't know your family personally, we share your pain. You're little girl has done an awesome thing.
Your daughter is an inspiration to all of us. Her life exceeds what so many of us could only hope for after 800 years on this earth. Now Alex is blessing everyone in heaven with her beautiful spirit. I will be praying for you and your family at this time and for your many challenging days ahead. May God bless you today and always.
Just wanted to let you know how deeply moved I was concerning your little girl's illness and her fight for life. I couldn't believe how brave she was and the effort that she put into her battle. God bless your family and know that she is at peace.
I praise God for persons like Alex, who live their lives by never giving up hope, knowing that their endeavors will be fruitful and not disappointing despite their personal fate.
To you the parents and family and friends, to have hope in Jesus Christ is to never have disappointment. You will always see the joy in life and be blessed by the benefits of whatever the outcomes life has for you. To have hope in Jesus Christ is to be in the very presence of God.
I am sorry for your loss. Be Blessed.
I found your daughter to be so inspiring. This last year I was very sick. When I got down I thought about your daughter.
I know she is in a safe place now.
My deepest sympathies go to you and your family.
Dear Alex - I never heard of you until today but reading of you made this 27 year old man see why children like you are God's precious. May God give your parents the strength to go through this difficult time - and may you be happy now that you are close to Him. And you should also know that your story has inspired me to do whatever little I can in my capacity to help the cause of neuroblastoma research. Tonight I will listen to Sherrie Austin's song Streets of Heaven and pray for you. May you find all the peace you tried to bring to others here. I will miss you even though I never knew you.
My most fervent prayers go out to her family and to all the friends that have shown such love and support for this precious little girl.. She is an inspiration to us all and I pray for a cure and for her work to continue.
I'm so sorry to hear that Alex passed away. She was a special little girl who brought hope to alot of people. My condolences go out to the family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
You have my deepest sympathy. I can not image the pain of burying your child.. May the strenghth and faith that has sustained you through her illness continue to keep you.
I am so sorry to hear of Alex's passing. I know all too well your pain, as my husband and I lost our precious 4-year-old John 23 years ago to neuroblastoma. Right now your pain is unbearable because you have been dealt the most cruel blow a parent can endure; I can tell you it DOES diminish with time. As difficult as it is to believe right now, you will be able to speak of Alex without crying or getting a catch in your throat, and happier memories will surface. You are all in my prayers. God bless you!
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Scott,
I've just read of the passing of your courageous daugther, Alexandra and would like to send my condolences.
As a father of 3 children, I know the beauty of having my own family. I can only hope that my children turn out to be half as determined and gutsy as your Alexandra was.
In times like these, I turn to Henry David Thoreau for inspiration and meaning to get me through them. Alexandra reminds me of a passage he wrote some 150 years ago regarding how a large tree grows from such a small seed. He went on to write: "I do not expect a tree to grow where no seed has been...but show me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders".
I believe he had someone like Alexandra in mind when he wrote this. The love and compassion of our family goes out to you this day and we wish you as much comfort as you can take from knowing that your little girl made a huge mark in her life; the likes of which many of us will never know.
I just wanted to let you know, that I thought what Alexandra did was wonderful. I never met her, but I heard about her at the sixers game. Everyone who knew her should be proud of her!
Liz & Jay & family,I am sorry for the loss of ALex,what a wonderful girl will be missed by all,god bless
WHAT A REMARKABLE YOUNG CHILD YOU HAD. SHE TRUELY WAS AN ANGEL ON EARTH AND NOW SHE IS HOME. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
To Alex's parents - My deepest sympathies to you. Alex was an inspiration to me and at only 8 years old. She lived life to the fullest. I have an 8 year old son so it is very close to my heart.
She is now with God and not suffering anymore but she will always be remembered. I hope that you keep up Alex's Lemonade if I can help please let me know.
Take care and God Bless you all!!
the 1st time i had seen her on tv talking about her lemonade stand , i thought she would make it through and she seemed so positive. god bless her and her family.
My deepest sympathy. Alexandra was a blessing to all of us. Her strength and energy during her illness was remarkable. She is with God. My God bless and keep you in the hollow of his hand until she meets you in heaven.
Just so sorry to hear that such a brave and inspiring Little girl is gone.
Lord Bless the soul you have take, Look after her in only the way that you can. Please bless the family and friends Make them strong, Give them peace and strength so that they will know that there angel Alexander will be ok and forever watching over ther lives.
My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you over the passing of your very courageous little girl.
Alexandra is an inspiration to those with her disease as well as just every day poeple. If a man or woman could do half as much as Alexandra did by the age of eight this world would be a much better place. I am very sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your daughter with our community and our country. Her courage and determination will live on.
With thoughts and prayers,
Eleanor W. Riley
What a tremendous little girl! I'm so sorry for your loss, but you should both be so proud.
God bless you.
We are so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. May the sweetest memories of her life comfort you at this time.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
God is able. He will stand with you in this time of sorrow and provide the type of solace only he can provide.
God bless you and keep you is my prayer.
God bless you, Alex, and all those who you have touched. You have left this world a better place than when you arrived, and that is the greatest gift anyone can give.
Rest in peace. You are and will be dearly missed.
Alexandra's story is so sad and inspiring at the same time. We can all learn something from this little girl. May she find peace.
My prayers go out to you and your family. I pray that Alex is in a much happier place now and her legacy will go on forever.
