From a neighbor in the cul-de-sac / Sue Ludlum-Loose (neighbor)
I'm Alex's neighbor in the cul-de-sac and this is a devastating thing to happen. Alex, I can see you playing with the other kids outside, riding your skateboard home from the bus stop after school, hanging out with Ms. Alex across the street, and basically being a kid. You were so polite to adults and, like the other older boys, watched out for the little ones in the circle. We talked one day outside when I thought you were supposed to be in school, but you couldn't go because of your sunburn. Oooh, it looked painful! But you smiled anyway. This is a close community and everyone--everyone--is affected by your death. There are many, many tears being shed and if only we could turn back the clock. There are no answers, no explanations. Just immense grief. All the neighbors are trying to help your parents but we know it will be a long process for them. I just hope that you feel peace. Sue Ludlum-Loose Close

I've Known alex since around the 5th grade. He was one of my good friends. We hung out quite often when i lived in stafford lakes. [ the same neighborhood ] He was so funny and always made me laugh. I do not recall seeing him or hearin him be mean to someone! He was a great guy and i miss him so much. 8th grade we didnt talk AS much but we hung out at breakfast and had our laughs. I was lookin forward to another 4 years with him in highschool. I cant get it through my head he's gone i dont want to except that. I miss him so much and i hope he has a great time where he is. We will never forget him and he will be with us everywhere we go. I look up to him now! I hope to see him again someday! RIP Alex Iloveyousomuch Imissyoutoo This isnt goodbye; Its I'll see you again Untill then have a great time I will never forget you! RIP

Alex......it's so hard to say good-bye to you knowing that im not going to see you again. Everyone has always said noww to say good-bye if your going to see them again. On those last couple of days of school I always said "I'll see you later," knowing that I was going to see around and next year in high school......but i never thought I had to say good-bye so soon.....so early in life. Alex im never going to forget you and all the good times we had together. I am not going to accept the fact that your gone! I not going to say good-bye, but iI will say see you later.... and rest in Peace Alex. I will try not to remeber that your gone but willremember all those times we had like fooling around in class making jokes about the teachers, or coming in late with all sorts of excuses etc.. You were such a good..great friend and im going to miss you deeply. Luv ya always Yssis(your partener in crime) Close

All-around great kid! / Mrs. Gaddy (Friend/Honorary teacher )
Although I never had Alex in any of my classes, and was never "officially" his teacher, we knew each other quite well. His locker was right next to my classroom, and many of his friends were students of mine. Every morning and every time we passed each other, Alex would say, "Hi Mrs. Gaddy!" When I'd see him in the cafeteria, he'd have all of his friends, including me, laughing so hard that we frequently spat our drinks out At our awards ceremony, he ran up to me and hugged me after I sang to the eighth graders. I hugged him back and kissed him on the cheek. He ran around the school for the rest of the day yelling, "Mrs. Gaddy kissed me...Mrs. Gaddy kissed me!" This is a testimony to the kind of fun-loving, caring kid that we will all remember. It is also evidence that Alex was and will always be loved by his family and friends. Every year at our eighth grade awards assembly, when the chorus award is given in his honor, I will proudly remember Alex as a friendly face each morning, a side-splitting comedian at lunch, and a great kid who will be dearly missed by us all. I will be out of town during his funeral, but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all....goodbye Alex Close

I love you man / Matt Epperly (Basically Brothers )
I remember you were the first one to see me when i moved into my house 9 years ago. You came to my house 5 min after we had arrived and we have been best friends ever since. So many memories from buying a Charizard Pokemon Card from me for 125 bucks payed with your uncles check, sleepovers, soccer games, video games, to going to Sakura. I never thought anything like this was possible. Everyday i think about different funny and memorable things we did since we were in Kindergarden. I miss you so much man, and i'll remember you forever. Your stories will be told by me and im sure many others and you'll make everyone laugh again even tho you arent here to tell it. You were such a great kid full of fun, adventure, laughter, and friendship and i couldnt ask for a better and more loyal friend anytime. Im sry i couldnt say goodbye, but im sure i'll see you soon.
In memory of an amazing friend who will never be forgotten. I love you.

Hey Alex, you know, how could anyone forget what a great person you are...like Randi said, we made you miss your bus, so you came with us to Johnny's house, good times, good times, i was so happy i met you, you made me so happy that day with all of your jokes and smiles. it makes me happy because you were always trying to make people feel good. and that hat i took from you, i'll cherish it forever. You know, when Randi had called me up on the third, i was confused, cuz me and her like never talk anymore, but she broke the news to me, and i've basically been crying ever since...but i know you would want me to be happy so i've been trying to smile when i think of you and your wonderful spirit....and hey we can look at it this way, at least you made it out of Gayle, i'm proud of you. i love you Alex Overby, now and forever, and i'll never forget you, my favorite eigth grader. I <3 you! ~Veronica Close
