Alex was the first friend I met at Carleton who quickly became an integral part of my post secondary journey and years following. I thank her for making Ottawa feel like my home away from home and for sharing her life in the big city with me. I already miss her voice and the thought of never seeing her infectious smile or hearing that obnoxious laugh is heart wrenching. Her loss has caused excruciating pain and unbearable grief for the reason of how loved she is.
The last 8 years together were filled making memories that I will cherish forever. The kitchen dance parties, reading by the river, helping each other through our literature seminars because we inevitably got too busy talking instead of reading, our many coffee dates and city adventures are some that I’ll miss the most. Alex was a wonderful friend who will never be forgotten. As her father said, her light may be gone but may her warm glow live on through the lives she touched; I am forever thankful that I was blessed by the light of Alexis Leroux.

Alexis, trying to find the right words to describe what you meant to me is harder than I ever imagined. We were so young when we met for the first time playing soccer together, little did I know what teammates we’d become in the many years to follow.

We connected over so many different things; our conversations could have easily gone on for days. Last summer, we embarked upon this crazy journey of adulting together in the big city. We talked about our plans for the future, our goals, the adventures we hoped to have, and so much more. As I work through this difficult time in my life and honour you by chasing those dreams (you always helped me feel confident and strong enough to do so), you will be with me every step of the way.

I am so proud of you and the life you built for yourself that was in every way as amazing and beautiful as you. I am beyond thankful you came into my life so easily, and I got to be there to see you achieve greatness.

You are forever in my heart. Alexis, my angel, I love you so much. Until we meet again, xo.

Alex, you were truly a special young woman. I knew you a very short time but I found our after work conversations quite enjoyable. I was very impressed that you chose a job helping folks on the margins even though you had what sounded like a really great "blue chip" job offer from the placed where you interned. Thank you again for embracing Weiser and your support during the time of Candice passing. You will be missed for all that you were and all that you would have been. May you rest easy now. You were dearly loved by your family and many friends. Steve

As I sit here and reflect on some of my most heartfelt memories, I realize you were almost always right there with me. I'm enjoying getting to know you all over again with every testimony and memory I read, and I hope to bring the same to others.

I always bragged about you (honestly). From new friends to old you've always been that person to me "that can do anything", literally. As we got older, I enjoyed our deep and sincere chats about life and ways to help others. We could be serious when we needed to but we always knew how to have a good laugh.

You've always been able to make me feel at ease when I felt nervous or anxious to start new things. You were the first person to show me around Ottawa and Carleton, and were so forgiving anytime I got lost to meet you.

I'll miss walking to meet you half-way in our childhood neighbourhood. I'll miss our (terrible) dancing skills. I'll miss annoying your parents in your basement while we sign Celine Dion at the top of our lungs. The pointless drives, trips to winners and sharing all things make-up and clothes. Although we look nothing alike, I understand just why we've been confused as sisters when we worked together for so many years.

I'll miss you for as long as I live but I'm forever grateful that you were a part of my path.

"I don't know how I'll do it without you, but I'll be doing it for you"

I love you so much, my angel. XX

Alex,

You came to stay with me once when you were visiting friends in Ottawa and we had a cinematic girl's date night...dinner out, movie, chats...drinks, the whole thing. I remember it all vividly. We never skipped a beat, as others have said you're incredibly easy to talk to - you just make people feel comfortable without any ounce of judgement. You're an incredible listener and gave me some really sound advice that I took on.

You slept over in our weird basement that night without any complaints and I remember thinking in the morning when you left that I was so grateful for our friendship. You were really special.

I'll miss you and I'll never forget you. My thoughts are with your family.

Xx

I can't pick a favourite memory because each one is as good as the next. Like in middle school when we ate milkshakes at a diner with Renee and forgot to make sure we had enough money, so we had to ask strangers for change. Or in high school when we did scavenger hunts or prank calls and you were always able to get people to have full conversations with you. Or when we tried to meet at your university res, and I hadn't quite mastered the bus system yet, so you had to come rescue me in the middle of nowhere - your eye rolling was unmatched. Or the day I asked you to be my bridesmaid. I'd never heard you squeal like that before! I was incredibly lucky to have had you in my life so closely for the past 13 years.

Although you are no longer physically here, I know you will be by my side with every new travel, every breezy bike ride and with every good book. Love you always. ❤

I first met Alexis when I changed schools in grade eight. She was among the first people that I became so close with, in what became a fun filled friendship that lasted for years. Alexis was always so kind and had an amazing sense of humor. I will never forget all the times that our group of friends would meet up in the neighborhood and just hang out at all hours of the night with jokes and laughs. Or when we went to the mall and took photos in the photo-booth, and we all kept one. I will cherish that photo forever.

After high school everyone went their own ways, but we reunited in university and again when teaching at the same elementary school. It was like we had never stopped talking. She was such a people person, and so easy to talk to. Just a genuine interest for other's well-being. Until we meet again my friend.

To my dearest granddaughter,

You are the shining star that will always light up my heart.

Alexis, I will forever look for you in the night sky and know that the sparkling star I see from above is your spirit expressing love to me and to those you left behind.

Go in peace my angel, til we meet again.

Love,
Grandma
