Alex was a bright young guy with an impact to many. Him and I enjoyed tea together from time to time. Can’t say there was a ever a dull time if Alex was around. Always a smile on his face and a good attitude.

I remember meeting Reem back in late 2016 through my good friend David. Reems' energy and confidence were apparent instantly. Reem always was like a superhero to me, he was invincible and not afraid of a thing. Reem made me feel jealous sometimes because of his awesome energy. He could command a room instantly and always had good taste in everything he did. Although Reem was 4 years younger than me, he always felt older than me. He had wisdom beyond his years and knew how to have empathy for others. I was crying all day at work today thinking about how sad it is for everyone around him. Reem was the brightest light I knew in this world and it's not fair that everyone doesn't get to have him in their lives. Worst of all not fair for Reem. Reem always could make me laugh until I cried and his taste in music was on point. He was always the guy in the room everyone wanted to be and I'll really miss him. Feels like a part of my heart has been torn out. I'm still in shock and haven't really started to process it. You had a lot to live for deserved all the years to enjoy it. Reem, you had a big heart for people, you knew people's needs and how to help. He was very easy to get along with. You have a beautiful soul. I'll miss you forever and always, rest in peace brother. Sending love to your family and friends.

I met reem about 4 years ago through my good friend David. Reem was one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I have ever met. He always wanted everyone smiling and laughing and genuinely cared about everyone. He would always ask how you were doing And how your day had been. His smile and laugh were contagious and will be missed by so many! Keep watching over us reem, and keep those smiles on our faces like you always did! 💜

I spent time with “Reem” on many occasions when he was hanging out with my son David at our apartment on Central Avenue. He was always so cheerful and genuinely interested in me, his friend‘s mom-
Reem always offered to help me shlep my bags upstairs and would sit and talk. He had a smile that lit up the room; his warmth and kindheartedness was felt immediately whenever I saw him. My heart breaks for his family and friends who already have an empty place in their hearts where their dear friend lived.

I met Alex when he was just 14. He gave me a run for my money ! Through all of
our ups and downs, he was honest and caring. And oh that smile. I hope you have found peace Alex. Until we meet again. RIP😘
