    We will always remember our monthy dinners together and the wonderful conversations we had about travel and family. One of our favorite dishes that Alex prepared was his smoked salmon. We are so glad we had the opportuity to get to know both Alex and Elise through church and Bible study. We will always cherish our friendship.

    He was my boss in the Navy. He was a great guy, and a great naval officer.
