Words cannot express the shock of when Dean told me about Alex. Id met Alex back when he was 13. My heart breaks for Alexs family but I know hes watching over the family that meant SO much to him ( biological and Marine Family) from Heaven.
Alexs legacy to me will be how he truly LIVED LIFE and whomever had the honor to know Alex was surely left as a better person.

Miss you, Alex!
