Alec was nothing but a positive spirit. My memories of him are all met with a big smile. He was alway kind and loving to me, and he always made me feel like I was the most important person in the world. He has a great life with Eileen, Jenny, and Chris. His untimely death is a tragedy, but I know he live a full, happy life. I miss him very much. My condolences to his friends and family.
