Going to a Batman movie at midnight is something my own family would do. We're all fans of superhero movies. I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news about the shooting. Alex especially stood out to me because of sharing the same surname. When I saw his picture I thought he looks like he could be a nephew or cousin. I am so saddened by the loss you all must bear.

While it is too soon to hear this, please remember that Alex knows that you love him and he would want you to be able to smile and laugh. It's not an insult to his memory to find enjoyment in life. He'd want the best for you just like you've always wanted the best for him.
August 04, 2012
To the Sullivan family: my heart and prayers go out to you at this difficult time. May God watch over each and everyone of you. Alex, you were taken too soon. RIP.

WITH HEART FELT SYMPATHY I PRAY THAT YOU RECIEVE COMFORT FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS BUT IN THOSE DARKEST HOURS CALL ON GOD FOR THAT MUCH NEEDED STRENGTH AND BE ASSURED THAT GOD IS NEAR TO ALL THOSE LOWLY AT HEART.

To the Sullivan Family: As a parent who has lost a child (only) my heart aches for you all. I never knew your son but I can feel some of your pain. Please take it a day at a time, or an hour at a time. You will get through this but it does take time to heal. God Bless You all.

I offer my prayers to Alex's family. I too lost a family member in that senseless shooting and feel your pain. May you find peace one day.
July 28, 2012
Dear Sullivan Family,
My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Alex sounds like a blessing, not only to your family, but to this world. I'm so glad that you are honoring his life by sharing your beautiful memories. The night after the shooting, my 10 y.o. son said to me, "I need to write to Alex Sullivan's family". I asked him why Alex (since we have never met your family). He said, "I need to let them know that Alex still loves them." When I asked him why he thought that, he said, "I just know this Mom and I need to tell them." My son did write your family a letter although I'm unsure where to send it. So I just wanted you to know...
God bless you.
July 28, 2012
My heart and prayers are with you and your family.
July 28, 2012
To the Sullivan Family,

To all of Alex's family and friends,

We are so sorry for your loss and are praying for all of you. Reading about the life and tragic death of such a good young man is heartbreaking. We ask for God's blessing on Alex' soul and for healing for all of you.

Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may Perpetual light shine upon him.
July 27, 2012
My heart goes out to the family and friends of Alex. He was definitely taken too young. As someone who was just married I especially want to express my condolences to his wife. God bless and help to heal your broken heart.
July 27, 2012
I'm so sorry this happened. It has deeply saddened me that this tragedy took place. I feel for all those lives that were taken and their friends and family. God bless everyone.
July 27, 2012
To the Sullivan Family, Of course we were all saddened by the events in Aurora Co but then it even brought more sadness hearing that Alex was one of those life's taken so unjustly. The boys (Lee and Chris) have very fond memories of the years we lived by your family on Prentice Drive. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. From the sounds of all the comments Alex grew up to be a wonderful, happy man as we certainly remember him. Take care of each other and remember you have a special angel in heaven watching over all of you. Fred, Sue, Lee, Christopher, and Ryan Kortus
July 27, 2012
For the loved ones of Alex, may you find peace in the love and memories. God Bless.

Terri, no words can express my sincere sympathy and heartache for you, on the loss of Alex. I was shocked and saddened that your son was one of the victims of this horrific event. My prayers and thoughts will continue for you and Tom and the entire family.
July 27, 2012
Dear Family,
I knew Alex from the Aurora Movie Tavern, I use to stand at the podium and he behind the bar, we use to have more conversations of everyday life and things upcoming in his or mine, I went to San Antonio 2 years ago and he wanted a specific type of Cigar, and I found them, He was one happy camper. He was a joy to be around. He made everyone laugh, And the Big Bear Hug!! my thoughts and prayers are all with you. I will always remember Alex, and smile :) take care of yourselves. love always Cindylu

I went to Grandview with Alex and was greatly saddened to hear of his passing. Having not seen him since high school, when I first heard the tragic news, the first image to pop into my head was of Alex's wonderful smile. I think there are few people in this world who are known by their smile and happy comportment -- Alex is one of those prized few. To say he will be greatly missed is an understatement. Though Alex's life was short, he made a positive impact on my life and those of everyone with whom he came in contact.

To his family and his wife, Cassie, I hope you can take comfort in knowing you have been blessed with knowing an incredible guy and can share in laughter at the memories of all your good times together. Alex's life may have be short but was definitely well-lived. May you all be blessed by his loving, watchful eye from above.

And to Alex -- We'll miss you!
July 26, 2012
To the entire extended Sullivan family, from all the entries in this guestbook you can tell that Alex will be missed and you are in the thoughts/prayers of the entire world.

I used to see Tom every Wednesday, for a short time, while helping to feed the comic book habit he shared with Alex, and I was fortunate enough to have met Alex once or twice over the past couple years. Alex was always smiling and brimming over with enthusiasm even when his favorite characters seemed to be getting the shaft in the current storylines. I may not have known him well, but I understood him and know he will be missed.
July 26, 2012
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Alex's family, friends and loved ones. I had the privilege of working with Alex at The Club at Pradera. We had a running joke about who made the best breakfast burritos-him or me. I let him win. He was a big, burly, hulk of a man, who was really like a big teddy bear. He always had a huge smile and some kind of wise crack ready at hand. You couldn't help but laugh with him when he bellowed out that raucous laughter of his--it was contagious. I am greatful to have shared a short time with him and I will miss him. Thank you to his family for sharing your wonderful son with the world, even if for only a short time--too short. Rest peacefully and sweetly in the hollow of God's hand until we meet again.
July 26, 2012
I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved son,grandson,husband and friend. May Alex forever be your guardian angel,RIP Alex, you are not hear physically but you will never be forgotten
July 26, 2012
Alex, I will never forget you buddy. I will always remember you as the hardest worker and loyal friend. Youhad a great heart and I will forever cherish the moments we had on the football field and wrestling room. God speed and rest in peace buddy. You will forever be missed.
July 26, 2012
Alex, years ago when you were in high school still we worked together. I remember you being one of the happiest people in the world. You were always upbeat and some how, some way, you always managed to put a smile on everyone's face no matter what kind of mood they were in especially me. I remember the times our group would get together to go to the movies and you always went with us. Almost everytime we went you did your impression of Sloth from Goonies which always made every single one of us laugh. I'm sorry I didn't stay in contact after you left. The couple of times I seen you after that though it was like we had just seen each other yesterday.

To Alex's parents, what an amazing person you raised. He is truly one in a million. He is going to be missed. I truly wish I had seen him recently before he left this earth too soon.

RIP Alex. It's not goodbye, I'll see you later. I know you'll be waiting for every single person you came across in your short life.

Goonies Forever.
July 26, 2012
My deepest sympathies to the Sullivan family. God Bless You All. RIP Alex
July 26, 2012
I went to middle school with Alex, he had a contagious smile and always seemed to be laughing. My prayers are with everyone who will miss his smile.
July 26, 2012
Sorry for your loss.
July 26, 2012
R.I.P. Alex. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this very sad time. May God Bless you all.
July 26, 2012
Alex was a student of mine when he was in middle school. I saw him a few times while he was working at Sonic when he was in high school. Alex was always Alex - a big guy with a bright and happy smile. He always brought a light into the room! I am so saddened by his passing. I always thought that he would be a special person in this world and I think that he was, just by being himself.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I can't imagine walking in your steps right now. Remember the good times and the good stories. Alex will walk by your sides forever.
July 26, 2012
I am so sorry this happened to Alex. I didn't know Alex but he seemed like a great person to be around. May God Bless his family my prayers are with you in this difficult time.
July 26, 2012
You son will always be the light for you and so many others. He is now a star and will forever watch over all of you. May the peace of God, which passes all understanding be with you all. I am so sorry for the loss of this great life.
July 26, 2012
Alex,

You were a great kid. I always enjoyed our little get togethers. I had so much fun teasing you and you never once crushed me like a grape. RIP big boy. You will be missed.
July 25, 2012
Holding your family tightly in our prayers. May you find strength and comfort just knowing that people from everywhere in Colorado and around the globe are wrapping you tightly in thought and prayer. We will never, ever, forget Alex and your family, in addition to each and every loved one who is struggling with this unspeakable tragedy. His memory and his legacy will be honored for generations by those of us who, though strangers, have been deeply touched by Alex's story. Please allow yourselves to feel the warmth of love and support being showered over you by the millions of people who care so much about your family, and what you are enduring. God Bless You Always.
July 25, 2012

To Alex Sullivan's family & friends,
I am one of many people through out the world who are praying for you today and will continue to do so in days to come. I read that your beloved Alex was truly a friend for life. What a treasure when so many large cities experience transient populations! I also noted that on occasion he served as a bartender. That is a profession that I truly respect...puts multitasking to the test with customers, serving staff and kitchen expectations. From what is in print Alex was a master who could transition those skills if and when he chose.
No one can fathom the loss that is unique to each of you.
I choose to commit the name of Alex Sullivan to any observances & memories of July 20. May peace be with you
July 25, 2012
We met Alex at the Movie Tavern. We used to laugh and joke with him on Friday nights. He was a wonderful young man! A son to be proud of. One Friday when Angry Birds was the new thing I got a red one out of the claw game for my husband as a joke and Alex asked if he could have it and we gave it to him. We are keeping you in our prayers. Know that Alex touched many lives and he will be remembered.
Love Jeff and Becky Frankum
July 25, 2012
My sincere sympathy for your great loss. May the Good Lord embrace you during your grief.

Dear Alex and his family -

I did not know Alex, nor his family, but feel drawn to his story and zest for life. As someone else previously stated, he is someone I wish I had known. May God be with his wife Cassie, family and friends, as he is also with Alex. God Bless.
July 25, 2012
May peace be with you through rough time.
July 25, 2012
To Alex and his family -

I am so grateful that I can read through the words that people have written about Alex and know that they are true. I witnessed his infectious smile and positive attitude almost daily for several years. Not only did I work with Alex in the training room during all of his athletic endeavors, but I was Alex's science teacher for two years at Grandview.

I used to own a St. Bernard that I would bring to practices, or have visit the classroom and Alex LOVED that dog. I always felt like they were connected - both big, happy and easy going. Whenever I showed up at school with Bos, Alex was close behind hoping he could pet him or just spend time with us.

As a bereaved parent myself, I wish I had words for you, his family... special, magical words that would help you heal, or words that could ease your pain for just only a brief second, but I know that they do not exist.

My wish for you is that as you read through these tributes, may you remember what an impact he had on others and what a special purpose his life had.

My life was impacted by Alex, and I am grateful for the lessons he taught me.

Rest in peace Alex -
July 25, 2012
Dear Family,
My prayers and thoughts are with you during this terrible and tragic time. I did not know Alex but the words used to describe him makes me feel as if he would have been someone I would have liked to have known. May GOD be with you and bless you through this difficult time. May his grace and glory comfort you during your time of loss. GOD be with you all.

i did not know Alex, but when i saw the picture of him, he just looked like such a warm and wonderful young man.
i am from canada, far away from this tragedy, but even here it has touched us and hurt us.
i wish the family peace and love and do not let the evil that touched that theatre prevail.
love is greater
July 25, 2012
Dear Family,

Our hearts and soles go out to you for the lost of such a wonderful person. We didn't know Alex that well, because we just moved into the neighborhood a month ago...but right away Alex and wife welcome us with open arms as their next door neighbors.

May God be with all of you in your time of need.

My heart is so heavy for you. I was grieving my own child that I lost 27 years ago on July 20, 1985, until I heard of this tragedy. When. I saw how incredibly beautiful he would have become and then my heart hurt again for your Alex. But, I did get to live the joy of my son through your Alex. Thank you for that and I will for ever be touched to you by knowing that our babies somehow shared that day as angels. God Bless You and I'm so sorry.
July 24, 2012
I had known Alex since the 5th grade, when I first moved to Aurora. In standard Alex Sullivan fashion, he was one of the first people to talk to me on my first day at school which, when you're ten and new to town, meant more to me than I unfortunately ever had the chance to tell him. Through middle school and high school, though we were never especially close, I could always rely on a warm greeting if we ever passed in the hall. He was always cheerful, with his large humor, in a way that, even if you barely knew him, made you feel silly for--and then less burdened by--your own, small anxieties. His endless sense of fun gave you better perspective on things. I wish we had been closer but I'm glad for having the honor of knowing him at all.

My deepest sympathies to Alex's friends and family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. I wish that you find some relief in Alex's memory and all those who miss him with you.
July 24, 2012
Our hearts go out to all who Loved this youngman.Deepest sympathy to Alex's Family& Friends.
Keeping all in our thoughts and prayers.

Alex, my wrestling teammate, my wrestling family, and my friend!!!! We may not have known much about eachother but ya know what???, thats ok bc i knew enough about you to know what an amazing, humble, and bright person u were!!! I never saw u without a smile on ur face whether u were having a bad day or not!!! If u were around, all the people that were present were happy and smiling as well!! Alex, im my opinion and many others, u were one of the most genuine men that anyone could ever of met!!! U will be forever missed my friend and always in my thoughts and prayers!!!
July 24, 2012
Dear Alex,

I can't even believe you're gone. I'll never forget your sweet smile always lighting up the training room at Grandview. You are truly one of the sweetest, kindest human beings I have ever known. Both my brother and I were devastated to learn that you were one of the victims. I know that you are in a better place now, but the world is now missing an amazing person. My thoughts are with you and your family, rest well big man and know that you are truly missed.
July 24, 2012
Alex-
You are missed. I hope your family can take some small comfort in the love and support offered from around the world.
July 24, 2012
I remember Alex from high school. We were friends and he was bigger then me. I would always run up behind him and jump on his back, he would laugh and say " you are so crazy, how are things going" he was always nice and smiling, always interested in you and how you were doing. He was amazing, fun, kind, and everything you could wish for in a person and friend. I wished him happy birthday that morning.

Alex I love and miss you. I pray for you, your family, and your wife. You will always be missed. You are always my friend.
July 24, 2012
Sweet, sweet Alex is my best way to describe him. We are so sad about the world's loss. While we cannot understand this madness, our peace is in his last FB post, "... best birthday ever". As stories are told, heaven is the most beautiful place. Beautiful music, purest love is felt and all those before us are there welcome us.....best birthday ever.....probably true for Alex. God has enveloped Alex with his love. We will forever miss his presence.
Our best prayers to the Sullivan family in this difficult time.
July 24, 2012
Alex,
You are loved and missed. Know that people in your community, nation, and even people around the world, have paused and thought of you, today. Your family is on our thoughts, in our hearts, too.
July 24, 2012
Please know that your family is in my prayers. Let me know if there is anything all of us at Grandview can do for you. With my deepest sympathy.
July 24, 2012
With my deepest sympathy. Know that many share in your loss. May God Bless all of you.
July 24, 2012
I will never forget all those time you stood behind me during football season. You were the most supportive person and you always watch out for me. I could never ask for a better friend. I watched you walk into people lives and everyone said the same thing, "He is the kindest person I have ever met." you have no idea how many people you actually touched. I am so very sad that you were taken away from us so young. But just know that you made a footprint in my life, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. RIP Alex. I will forever remember you.
July 24, 2012
RIP-Love & Prayers to the family from Texas.
July 24, 2012
Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, Alex! You will be missed by so many.
July 24, 2012
I remember Alex well as a friend and practice partner on the Grandview High School wrestling team. I can't think of a kinder, nicer person than Alex. Alex was diligent, friendly, gentle, and the world is poorer without him.

While we lost touch after high school, I was very saddened to hear of his passing. My deepest sympathies to Alex's family and wife in this tragic time. I pray for Alex, and that all the people he loved and who love him may find peace and solace somehow.
July 24, 2012
As the seconds, minutes, hours, and days go by seems like time doesn't slow down enough to mourn those we have lost. However, as time continues on you will continue on in the hearts of those that knew you for your smile, love, generosity, and every other great quality you had. You will be missed by many not only by those that knew you personally, but also by a community that has come together as one to say goodbye. The Angels have you now, and there are many very grateful to have you to watch over them. I'm glad I have the honor of saying I once knew an amazing person. May your soul rest in peace Alex. ?
July 24, 2012
I will never forget you as one of the sweetest guys to ever come into the Grandview High School Training Room. You were always so full of laughs and silliness. A true gentle Giant. I remember your sensitive nature and how you always gave your all to everything you did. When I got word that your beautiful life had been taken so needlessly, it sent chills and sadness to my core. Such a wonderful person with so much beauty to show the world was taken far sooner than I would have ever hoped. The impact that you should have been able to have on the world was meant to be so much more. The only piece of solace that I have is knowing that you are most definitely in a wonderful place far beyond this world. Your family and close friends are in my everyday thoughts and prayers. I pray that in the devastating loss that they are experiencing from missing you, that they will find a way go on with life and take all the beauty and love that you had to offer the world and spread that so much further. Alex, you will always be remembered as one of the sweetest, most thoughtful, and kindest Men that I have had the privilege of knowing! Knowing you made my life that much more complete! Rest in Peace knowing that in your life, your impact changed more lives than you can ever know! Thank you for changing mine! You will never be forgotten

Friday, I had not been watching the news, was busy all day, around the house, cleaning. Yet, something prompted me. My only son is named Alex. A feeling of angst came over me, not sure why, but all day while I was cleaning, this feeling stayed. I turned on the television around dinner about 8 pm, Central Daylight Time. After awhile, not too long, I saw Alex M. Sullivan's portrait. I can only say, I feel terribly for your loss. He is a great person, with us, his energy is in a higher place. Love, Lynn
July 23, 2012
Alex and I had many chats during his wrestling days at Grandview High School. My son, Jim was one of his team-mates now serving in the Air Force in Germany. He was shocked and saddened to hear the news as were we. I agree with the things I have heard and read about Alex. They were true of him even in high school. He had a "never quit" attitude that I admired. Jim Piper, Jr. on behalf of the whole Piper family

Sending out my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Alex Sullivan.
July 23, 2012
I will always remember Alex doing the yard work for us when we were working. It sounds as if you grew into a wonderful man and I know you will be sadly missed by your family.
July 23, 2012
To the Sullivan family,

I am very sorry for the loss of Alex. His genuine smile and innocent eyes are a tribute to his goodness. It is true what they say, big people have the best of hearts. It broke my heart to see you look for your son. Your picture will remain with me for a long time. I asked God to keep Alex alive, but he was already home. Every time I think if Alex or you, I cry because I can't understand this injustice of taking someone's life like that.

I also pray for his wife Cassandra, I hope she will realize with time that she has a strong and wonderful angel watching over her, forever.

To Alex,

I truly hope you are happy! Forever young, forever handsome, forever in the hearts of those who love you. Rest in peace with Jesus.
July 23, 2012
My husband and I knew Alex from the Movie Tavern. I got to see him on his last day of work there and got a big hug from him. Little did I know that would be the last time I saw him. Alex was a very special guy. He brought joy to our lives. He will be missed terribly. We will remember Alex and his family every time we go to the movies. May God be with you at your darkest hour. God Bless.
July 23, 2012
If the whole world had more people like Alex Sullivan, it would be a much, much better place to live. God opened His doors to another Angel.
July 23, 2012
Our prayers and sympathy are with you today here in West Virginia. May God give you peace.
July 23, 2012
We never know why these things happen, we only know that it hurts.

Rest in peace, big guy.
July 23, 2012
My thoughts & prayers are with everyone touched by this senseless act. I didn't know Alex however we shared a birthday. It broke my heart to watch you search for your son. I will be reminded of this tragedy every year & say a prayer for your family & friends.
July 23, 2012
I am praying for Alex's family. I pray that they will find peace very soon. I'ts just so hard to have them snatched right out from under us in such a tragic way. I am sorry for your loss and will continue to lift you all up in my prayers.
July 23, 2012
My heart goes out to you and your family. I saw your father holding your picture and know you were not only loved but a very special man. I hope life in heaven is easier than on this earth. Just remember you were truly loved!

What a joy and blessing to have had someone like Alex Sullivan in your life! Better to have had him for his 27 years than never at all. I have so much sorry for those left behind, I can't imagine Alex being anywhere but in Heaven. God Bless to all who knew him, esp. his family and widow. I am a mother of a 27 year old son myself.

you will be missed

To the Sullivan family,
We are all so sorry for you loss. Alex wrestled with my brother at Grandview. I still remember him dancing in the stands with my daughter between matches. We would see him at the movie tavern all the time. Alex you were a wonderful man. love the Ferguson family

May the Lord comfort the family and friends of Alex Sullivan. RIP
July 23, 2012
I graduated from Grandview High School with Alex, and I will always remember his infectious smile brightening up the hallways of GHS. I haven't seen Alex since high school, but was horrified to hear of his life cut short. I've taken small comfort in the fact that I know Alex is now in heaven, smiling down on all of us. My prayers and thoughts are with the family and his wife, Cassandra always.
July 23, 2012
Praying for the family and friends hope you find peace and comfort through this difficult time.
July 23, 2012
We're so sorry. Keeping all of you in our prayers.

Prayers to the Sullivan Family. I worked with Alex and remember his beautiful smile and goofy sense of humor. He was really a pleasure to be around and will be dearly missed. Seek strength in God who will comfort you and see you through this awful tragedy. God Bless you all. Joyce Ingraham (Aurora, CO)

Larry Marintez & Family To My Cousin Cassie and The Sullivan Family.
We were very disturbed to hear of the unexpected death of the new member of the Family, Alex Sullivan. This is such a tragedy. We just can't believe it. We can't imagine what you are going through but want you to know your family is here in your time of need. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
July 23, 2012
Alex's loss will be remembered by people all over the U.S. We grieve for you and express sincere our sympathy. May God be with you and your family now and in the months and years to come.

To the family of Alex, I'm extremely sad for your loss and for what has happened to Alex and all the other poor souls. Alex looked as we say in the UK, like a Right Bobby Dazzler!!!! May you all find the strength to remember with fondness and not pain, cry with happiness and not tragedy and live with purpose once more in his honor xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss and for everyone affected by this senseless act. I lost my father to a terrorist attack in 1979 and remember how hard it was to make any sense of anything. May God Bless you all and give you strength. I can't tell you how my heart aches for you all.
July 23, 2012
Alex will be remembered. I hope you find peace

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

Alex,I rememmber the day you walked into the wrestling room at Grandview a Freshman in a man's body. So upbeat and looking forward to show your stuff.The next few years you hung in there and made your mark. Like so many before you and after you you came in a child and left as a man. And what an outstanding man you became, we are so going to miss that smile and that easy going demeaner you displayed. we are so sad. rest in pease and god bless you for giving me the chance to know you.

The complete pain and sorrow on your family's faces were a mirror of all the pain and sorrow we felt for you and the others on that night. Our prayers and thoughts go out to you and your loved ones. May God give you peace.
July 22, 2012
May the sun of heaven be shining on your face, as angels sing when you walk through the gates. To meet God, and Jesus. May you be embraced by HIS great love. May your heart feel peace. For those left behind, may they come to understand, tomorrow is promised to no man. We are but a vapor. Some longer, others shorter. You, Alex were here too short, but, even though I did not know you, the light that shined in your eyes, and the smile on your face, show you were embracing life. One day all who love you & cry for you, will see you. As you greet them at the great gates, when the angels sing as they arrive! It seems you bleessed so many people. Your parents, and friemds should be proud of the man you were.

I wanted to add a candle.
July 22, 2012
Hey Alex. I've thought about you off and on through the years. I always pictured you married with lots of kids and watching an Avs game. I remember us joking about how you wanted to change your middle name so you could have those initials. I wish we'd kept in touch after middle school. You were a great friend. Thank you for sharing that part of your life with me. I can hear you now telling me not to think about crying because then you do. I'm trying. Really I am. But right now it's so hard.
July 22, 2012
As a fellow American, and a fellow Sullivan, I want to express my sorrow at your loss. May you find solace in memories and in knowing so many of us are praying for you. God bless.

My sincere prayers are for peace and for beautiful memories of your son. I was so touched and felt such heartache for the family when I saw Alex's father's anguish and heart rending picture. May God bless you richly with the memories and ease your family's knife-like pain. I won't lie and say it will get better. You will just be able to endure the pain as each year passes. My angel has been gone for 29 years and somedays I am right back at that point. Remember God is your refuge. RIP Alex.
