I don't know what exactly my last words to Alec were. But we were at my sister's high school graduation party and I was harassing him while he played corn hole. His first two tosses landed wide left, and I asked him how many points do you get for landing it on the grass. I kept joking with him while he played. He laughed, but didn't say much.

Before I left the hospital, when I went to see him for the last time. I told him, I love, I miss you, and I can't wait to see you again.

I didnt talk to Alec for a while before his surgery..
The day that Alec had his surgery and i had found out about everything with him in a comma...The last thing i said and only wished that he was able to hear was...
"Alec your strong pull through. Were all praying and thinking of you. Here. I love you Bro"....

last time we saw Alec was at Kasey's graduation party. Alec was throwing a football around (Surprize!) and he stopped when he saw us walk up. He said "hey guys what's up" smiled and gave Marty a kiss. Alec seemed happy to see us.
