Alex was a friend of my son. He was very polite, funny, intelligent and just a pleasure to be around. That's a testament to his loving family. We are very sorry for the loss of such a sweet young man.

Dear Amy and Michael,
I am David McSweeney's sister. We have met in Mount Pleasant a few times over the years.

I guess you never knew (or vaguely remember), your great-grandparents, Carl and Ruby Hopkins. But I did and let me say: they love you!

Michael and Amy,
I know you both to be dedicated, loving parents. Alex was a brilliant child. I will always remember that complicated art project you did with Alex at Buist, Michael. You passed your talent down to your son. And Amy, I will never forget meeting you in Earthfare for the first time, then so many times after. Alex was that beautiful baby with a shock of blonde hair and a big smile, with the mom who has a heart of gold. My love to both of you.
