I met Alex for the first time about 11 years ago when we moved into our home and he was our new neighbor. We became great friends over the years.

Alex always had a smile and a helpful attitude towards everyone and he became a family member to me and my children. We both shared a love for old cars and spent many Friday nights at the local drive in car show. Alex always had a good car story to tell!

We also enjoyed going fishing together, bowling, hanging out at Chic-Fil-A or Whataburger and breakfast at McDonalds. Alex was always ready to lend a hand to help me out and my fondest memory of him was when he helped me pick up a classic car in California. We took a truck and trailer and spent four days together on the road to San Diego and back home again. We laughed and talked the entire trip and stopped at any place that looked interesting (I'm sure you have all stopped to see "The Thing" somewhere in Arizona!).

I was blessed to spend a lot of time with Alex and all of it involved smiling, laughing and having a good time together! Godspeed Alex! You will be missed but you led a great life and are responsible for a lot of good in the world!

So sorry I won’t be able to be there for the services, but you all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Remembering the fun times we all had together as kids growing up, all those many years ago. Playing Monopoly on the little porch at your Mom’s house till all hours, and then growing up and taking trips to Beaumont. You would take us in the car from Tity’s House driving 90 miles an hour down the highway to the Louisiana state line just so we could say we had been out of the state! Of course none of the grown ups knew about that!! We will miss you, cousin and all the good times we shared. . Lots of love...Shirley
