    I am so sorry for the loss of your precious son. I remember Alex well from when he was a scout with Troop 314. I was on the troop committee and did many of Alex's Board of Reviews. All the younger boys looked up to Alex, and the troop was so proud that he went into the service for his country. I'm praying for you and Alex's daughter in the days ahead.

    Paul & Christine, Please know that we are thinking of u and your family. Alex and Bill did so enjoy "swapping" railroad stories. He will be sorely missed by all who know him most especially his family.
