Along with alec being able to make you smile with his silly jokes, he knew what to say at the appropriate time, one time i was just feeling quiet and thinking and he sat down with me and let me speak my mind, he listened intently and shared some things with me and we connected. I never knew alec had such a side, but im sure god's happy to have a guy like him at his side.

I will miss everything about him. He was a good friend and was always putting a smile on anyones face when they were down. Also he was always competitive in everything he did but win or lose he would always keep his head up high. I will miss him very much.

Hm. I would definately say that i miss seeing him everyday in school and listening to almost the same joke every single day. "whats yellow, and upside down?" "A DEAD SCHOOL BUS!!!" ha. he was funny. and probably me and him making fun of jardy everyyyy day.. and saying crap about jardy. and definately his competitiveness in sports and being able to see him kick the crap out of other basketball players like he did this one kid.. i'll never forget him.. and his crazy jokes... I miss everything about him.. Abby

I'll miss everything about him. he was a great person, had a great personality and i'll definately miss seing him everyday in biology so we could make fun of jardy. also, he told me the same joke almost everyday towards the end of the year and we would always goof off instead of doing our work and we'd make fun of jardy the whole class. i'll miss seeing him play basketball and def. scaring some of those players off. i miss everything about him.. he was a great guy.. we miss you alecc.

His smile, his humor, and His obvious sensitivity to God. Alec could get serious with spiritual issues while others sometimes stuggled with their responses to God.

His full plate of forever mashed potatoes at Busia and Dziadzi's. How he would always sit down right in front of me so I would get the hint and rub his shoulders. Playing "Jackpot" in Busia and Dziadzi's backyard and him "playing the guitar" when he was like 3 years old at my dad's house.

I will miss every single thing about Alec. Watching him play sports, seeing him use one of the dogs as a pillow, looking in on him at night, just everything. I will miss seeing him everyday and the daily phone call to ask "what's for dinner".

I will miss the way Alec welcomed me to every family gathering. He would talk with me about everything and never made me feel out of place. Alec will always have a special place in my heart.

From a parent's point of view Alec was always an Angel. Alec would always talk to his friends' parents just like he was one of our own children. It didn't matter if there were ten kids over, Alec was the only teenager that would aknowledge a parent's presence.

For all of Alec's friends and family, he will always be that Angel in all of your lives. He had a purpose on earth and it touched all of YOU!

I'll miss the way that we would mess with each other. We would tease, make jokes, wrestle, everything. When I would see Alec, he didn't usually didn't just come and say "hi" to me. He would sneak up and punch me in my chest and then try to run off with that big smile of his. He's such a runt. Lot's of fun.

I will miss Alec's undeniable charm and smile. He didn't have to say a word, he just had that special presense about him. As a mom I am so happy to have been able to know such a special friend to my daughter and to know that he will always have a special place in her heart as well as all of ours. mrs. davenport

Alec was one of the greatest friends anyone could ask for. It has almost been a year since Alec has passed away, and I still remember the last time I was with him prefectly. He was such an amazing person, friends with everyone. He would listen to anything you had to say, and would give great advice. I was very lucky to have been one of his best friends since he moved to Northwood in seventh grade.

-We all miss you Alec, you will never be forgotten.
