As a father of a 16yr. daughter who knew and attended school with Alex my heart, prayers and deepest sympathy goes out to his parents, friends and loved ones.This tragedy has affected me personally hard, I have made several trips to the accident site to pray for Alex and his family . If you have kids driving please emphasize how important it is to drive safely and alertly at the proper speed limits and not be afraid to speak up if you are the passenger in a unsafe vehicle. Most importantly remember to hug them and love them because everday they around is a gift.

Thank you and God Bless you, believe me your prayers are heard and we feel the effects! That's the only thing that can get us through some days. It has been a rough year! By God's Grace though we have been able to speak to over 5000 students and parents in the last 6 months! That helps tremendously. Please go to ouyr website and email me from there. I would like to write to you Lou.
