    Alex will be missed. He was a wonderful person with a sense of humor that could bring a smile even on a bad day. After all the years working together it was evident he was a valuable resource and always showed a dedication to his work. May his family find peace in our Lord and Savior Jesus as he is the only true comfort in times such as these.
