  1. Dear Alexander family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I only wish I could have met him. I’ve heard stories of what a wonderful man he was. I will keep you all in my prayers.

  2. Alexander Family: I too have the pleasure of working with Diane. Most times simple words can not help to ease your loss but I wanted to share with you a piece of a poem I once heard…”I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He spoke about his lifetime from the beginning to the end. He spoke first the date of his birth and spoke the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time he spent alive on earth and now only those who loved him know what that that little line is worth. It matters not how much we own, the cars, the house, the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash….”

    Considering the kind hearted and loving person that Diane turned out to be, I know that your family is extremely proud of how Mr. Alexander spent his dash.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.
