Our memories of Alex are of the little boy all dressed up in his tux for Jeff and Monica's wedding. We caught a glimpse of him admiring his handsome self in the mirror. And he loved cooking at an early age. When visiting us he whipped up some delicious Rice Krispie cookies. We know how much he will be missed by all you knew him.

Alex, you were an amazing human in all the right sense of that word. I remember the day we hung out in NYC so fondly. I have always remembered the times I was lucky to spend time with you and your dad. You are greatly missed.

Dear Cecilia, Paul, and Vanessa,

I am devastated on your behalf. I remember how sweet, funny and smart Alex was. Good times at your home with you all. Those times with you were the happiest of my times in Gainesville. I remember times on the beach, in the park, at your home with the dogs and the birds. I remember a birthday party for Alex where the dog licked all the icing off the cake while it sat in the kitchen. Ay, Dios. There are no words. Lo siento tanto. Love,

Alex, I remember your generosity and decadence, not to mention your engineering prowess; a new-model San Franciscan par excellence. You already achieved an enviable success and still had only just begun to make a dent in the world. Our city and our era is measurably poorer without you. I'm glad I had the good fortune to once collaborate with you, and to count you as a friend; I'll miss you man.

La vida es un viaje, a veces breve, otras muy largo. Dejar huellas, trascender es valioso pero por sobretodo ser amado le da sentido a todo. Tu fuiste muy amado ... no te olvidaremos. Jovita
