The obituary was very well written and there are condolences from lots of car club friends of ours plus many others.

Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss of Alexander. You don’t know me, but my son Mike Wildeisen has been a counselor at the camp for years. He loves being with the campers and loves and admires each one. He will miss Alexander very much. He will try to be at the celebration. Mike spoke often of the
bravery of his campers and how much fun he had with them. Alexander’s smile reflects what a wonderful person he must have been to know. With sincerity, Helene Meyer

Such a bright and talented young man who left this world way too soon. We are so terribly sorry for your loss. Alex will be missed!

To Jeni and family,
Alex was a joy to teach. I enjoyed all our lessons together. He had a passion for music that was beautiful to witness and was so knowledgeable of many different styles of music. I always appreciated his eagerness to learn music theory and improve upon his vocal technique. Besides his passion for music, I admired the friendliness and respectfulness that he gave to me.
He will be singing with the angels now.
With love,

Alex will always hold a very special place in my heart. Alex had a very infectious smile and a great sense of humor. I will fondly remember the drives and talks to and from scholar bowl competitions where he had me in stiches most of the way there and back. He talked my ear off but I enjoyed that time with him very much. Alex was a very bright and witty young man with a lot to offer the world. I am very saddened that we will not get to know the Alex that would have been because he would have been a great one to watch change the world! That kid had so much potential. It isn’t often that I get to know such a respectful, kind and beautiful teen like Alex. I am forever grateful to have know this young man. Please know that my heart goes out to this family for such a loss because it is a great loss for sure.

To the Welsh & Reeds Family,
My deepest heartfelt sympathy for your loss! My thoughts and prayers for comfort and peace during this difficult time and in the years ahead. We don’t understand why this happens to our loved ones at such a young age, but I believe these angels are always with us in spirit. Blessings to you now and may you find comfort as time passes.
