Hey Alex,
I can't believe it has been more then a year! How is that even possible? I hope that you are at peace and that you forever keep an eye on us down here. You are missed... :-)

Well my brother what can I say. Life delt you your card early. You went to be with God. You are at peace. But I know you didn't really want to leave. We will always cry for you. We will always love you. Life will never be the same without you. Mom and dad will never be the same. Now it's our turn to wait for our card to be dealt. I pray that Andrew and I live long enough to see our grandchildren grow. I will close by knowing that indeed we will be together again, we will all celebrate our family's love once more. You had to go, our Lord had bigger plans for you. Until we meet again my beloved brother. Sleep with the angels.

Alex, there isn't a day that I wake up and turn on my car where I don't remember you and how much you loved cars. I still wait to see if you are going to be outside working on your car or assembling some kind of light kit. Your family loves you and misses you greatly. Your dad isn't the same and never will be. Our usual lengthy conversations through our grape vine have been cut to just a few seconds. Please watch over your family as they need you so much. You will always be in everyone's heart and mind regardless of how many years pass by because you were nothing short of an amazing person.

Dearest Alex,

It is so hard to believe that you're gone over a year already. I can still see your smiling face walking in through the old Coffee Shop doors. You have been greatly missed by all of us. You were always such a big help to us girls, it was a pleasure working with you. The customers still ask, talk and think of you.

Your fathers' and mothers' lives will never be the same again....but as I've told them many times, they will have good times, many laughs and many tears just thinking of their wonderful son. This is all part of life for all of us.

God had a bigger plan for you, you were taken from your family and friends too soon. Your memory will be eternal.

Your nephew is beautiful...he is growing so fast. I know Irene will keep the memory of you alive for her precious baby. It is wonderful that they moved back from Florida...your parents needed their daughter back. Baby Andrew has given them a reason to go on.

Alex, keep shining down on us all...until we meet again...Rest in Peace.

Alex, we grew up together and I learned many things from you. I can still remember playing catch on 79th ST as if it were just the other day. I cant believe a year has passed already. May your memory be eternal.
Miss you- billy passias

My dear Alex your pain is not with you anymore BUT it is with your family and friends to live with.

You have passed away too fast on Jan 19,2011 - the year's will go by and each day someone will think or say about you how great person you were not only to your family but your dear friends you left behind "your kindess,caring,loving you had given so often". You are always near by watching over your family especially your nephew "Andrew" who will miss his uncle. Look down keep them safe make peace let them know you hear their prayers
I will always cherish the day before you passed away walking up the stairs with your beautiful smile giving me a great hug with a kiss. You will always
be with me. May your Memory Be Enternal - until we will meet.

Hey Alex, I've been stressing a lot this week. I said and did a lot of messed up things. I'm still confused about a lot of things. And I'm blaming I think the wrong people. The baby is getting big fast. He is saying car and cat lolo. I got dad and mom a special box to put things of yours that mean Alot to them. Please keep the house and store safe always and away from harm. Please keep mommy and daddy safe and healthy always. Keep them away from harm. Give my love to those with you. Try and visit daddy and mommy when you can. They miss you so much Alex. Love you my beloved.
