Information in details
Some must simply provide news, some of it depressing. One of those is this, Alex, our dearly loved younger son and brother, passed away in a Georgia motorbike crash one week ago today. His body was not recovered, however, until yesterday. We’re told he passed away instantly. You can imagine the misery and speculation that we and his friends went through for several days. Although it is intended for widespread distribution for informational purposes, I cannot personalize it, nor is this the appropriate moment for me to add a lengthy and challenging message.
I am aware that some of you who actually knew and loved Alex but were uninformed of the circumstances leading up to this last week’s events may experience a tremendous shock as a result. While some of you may not have known Alex, we needed to let you know about this tragedy because you are either our friends or his friends. We haven’t decided on a service yet, but we’re planning on having it on Sunday afternoon in October at our former church in Pike County, Friendship Presbyterian. I don’t want to close my message without saying how appreciative we are of all the assistance and support received over the past few days from him, our friends, and the local law officers. When we send this out, we are thinking lovingly of him and of y’all. Walker
