Not sure what to say?

Just heard the sad news. He will be sorely missed. Proud to have been his Pharmacist for the last 10 yrs. His sense of humor and business advice will be missed. A great person to have the privilege of knowing and calling my friend. Sympathys to his whole family and God Bless Alex,Joann and everyone in his family.

I am so saddened to learn of Alex's passing. We were friends at Westminster College, and have kept in touch with each other over the years.

I am so sorry for your loss. Alex was such fun at Westminster during our college years. Alex really contributed so much to society.
Blessings to the family
