I am deeply saddened by the news of Alex's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I didn't know Alex well, but I played in the Men's basketball league with him at the Chardon YMCA. Great competitor and an all around cool guy.

Keeping your family in our thoughts, and prayers. I didn't know Alex personally, but I can feel for all of those who did. There's been a feeling of solemnness in the air for two days now. It hit even harder today I think, when the reality set in. My neighbor knew him. May God bless all of you, (his wife, their 3 daughters, his parents, siblings, all friends and family and pets if any) and give you the strength that you need to get through this difficult time.
