    Brian & Renee, there are simply no words to express how much my heart hurts for your family.  The both of you are truly so amazing, and you obviously raised your boys to be the same way, amazing! The few conversations I had with Alex, & the dancing we shared at Jason & Kris’s wedding, will always be remembered.  I thought he was such a sweet boy.  I am so very sorry. You are in my thoughts & prays, I love you guys, I miss you, & I pray you find a way to deal with losing your precious child.

    Brian, Renee, & Austin, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all! What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget" will always miss and love you Alex Behr.

    I don't know how to say how deeply sorry I am for your lose. This is a tragic event and it was well before Alex's time. I don't know why Alex was taken from us but the Lord must have greater plans for Alex. Even though Alex was taken from all of us, remember he is still with us! He is in our Hearts and our Memories. He is always watching us from above. If you need anything, know all of your friends and family are here for you! You are all in my thoughts and prayers!

    So very sorry for the tragic loss of Alex
    Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible.   "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life,........   ( John 5:28,29) 
    Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to sickness, or death.   "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)
     I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some comfort  during this difficult time. please visit

    most sincerely

    d mullins
