I would like to extent my condolences to you,
Micaela, and all your family members. I am
sure the Lord will remember all of Alex's deeds
at St. Julia Church and especially all he did
for the Men' Club. I remember a procession from
St. Julia to Congress Avenue and how Alex strung
about five miles of com wire and speakers all the way to Congress Avenue from St. Julia enabling all congregation to sing all the "alavances" in unison.

Con muncho sentimiento, tu amigo en Christo
