Alex's accident has stunned his family and friends.

He would do everything in his power to make it better for any friend who suffered. He would want us to remember his joy in the good things and that young men climb mountains.
He would want those that now grieve for him to be assured of his faith. Many heard him speak of his experiences that led to his commit-ment of faith in the Loving God, often in the joyful days of travel with his mother before the accident.
