Very sad to hear of Alex's passing and not being able to attend the services. Alex was one of my dad's best friends. I always thought of him as a second father. There is a huge gap in this world now without Alex. He was a very kind and gentle man. Hopefully him and my dad are enjoying being reunited! I love and will miss you Alex!!! RIP

To the Bojrab Family, I was very blessed to have met Alex 8 years ago. He had such a gentle heart and meant the world to me. I always looked forward to him stopping in to see me and enjoyed the long talks we were able to share.. A great man was taken from us. He was always looking out for me and its good to know there is one more angel protecting us. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. He will be missed greatly.
