Rest in peace, Alex. Love and prayers to Frank and Jennie and family
So sorry to hear of the loss of Alex. My thoughts are with you all.
I was a para in Alex's classroom at Century and worked with him for 3 years. Alex was such a light. His energy was so magnetic. My favorite memory of Alex was when we would get to have a break together. We would sit in the bean bags and I would sing with Alex. He would give me his classic side eye and everytime I would stop he would whip his hand and ask for more. What a loss to this universe. The world will have a little less energy without Alex in it. Thoughts to his family and all those who care for him.
I had the privilege to work with Alex when he was at Kellogg Middle School. Thoughts and prayers from our family to your.
