  8. Scott and Jan, I am so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you and the family. May you find comfort in God’s care and through his guidance.

  9. I have not known this family as long as most of you. But to know them is to love them. Giving hearts, loving souls, and compassion beyond words.
    During the beginning stages of Covid, Alex did some side job work at my house. It was unbelievable how creative he was, how he could fix something in five minutes that I had been working on for months. As my kids annoyed him, he would stop what he was doing and play with them. They took to him as well. A couple weeks into his time working on projects for me he started calling me boss lady!! It was hilarious to me the way he said it. I wish I could share the picture but I don’t see how to do that. I told him I wanted a fire pit built and a sitting area. The idea he came up with was betond words. It’s beautiful and I will be carving in loving memory of Alex into the bench! He was loved so much by his family and friends and his parents love for him was so apparent in everything they did together. Rest in peace Alex. Lots of love

  10. Scott, Jan, and Nick
    I am so sorry for your loss. Alex was always larger than life. He was an absolute goofball and so much fun to be around. We always had such a hoot either at your house or ours, swimming and goofing around together as kids. I know that no words can make this any better, but if you need me, feel free to reach out.

    • There are no words that will ever stop the pain of this loss. Y’all are in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort you during this horrible time. ❤️🙏🏼

  11. My lil weirdy…….I cannot put into words what I am feeling right now. I miss you so incredibly much. As I sit here and read what others have so beautifully written I am silenced. How can I say what you mean to me? How can I explain the depths of loss that my heart feels? Jan, Scott, Nick. My heart breaks for you. I don’t know how we will make it through this. I don’t know how we will survive. But I know that I will be with you every step of the way.

  12. We’re so sorry for your loss Nick. Thinking about you and your family during this difficult time.

  14. “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
    Who comforteth is in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted by God.” II Corinthians 1:3-4
    From one broken hearted parent to another, may you experience God himself comforting you and holding you in His arms as only He can do!!! HE WILL BE THERE!!! HE WILL NOT FAIL YOU!!! LEAN HARD ON HIM ALONE!!! He alone knows your heartache because God Himself gave up His only Son for our salvation!!! My heart is with you as you walk this horrible journey of heartbreak and pain that no one but another parent who has lost a child could ever understand!!! Sending my heart of love and prayers!!!
