The Memorial for Alex


On a beautiful day, in a beautiful setting yesterday, family, friends and admirers gathered under a shady tree near the river to remember and celebrate the life of Alex Lewis. As Gallo said to kick things off, many of Alex's different circles of his life were represented. The McCoven were represented by Merope, Mr. Merope, KDL, Old Jacket, Juan Primo, Johnny Disaster, Son of GGF, myself and of course, Gallo.

With such a heartbreaking loss, there were plenty of tears and terrible sad moments, there was also plenty of smiles and laughter as friends and family shared memories and anecdotes of Alex. It was clear that we here at McC weren't the only ones on whom Alex left an impression. His wicked sense of humor, the way he treated others and the way he lived life were a recurring theme.

Another item that warmed my heart, Alex was a committed organ donor and as a healthy young man who died of a head injury, is an ideal candidate to help others Although it means there will be a delay in Gallo being able to scatter his ashes, Alex is continuing to make the world a better place by helping others and part of him will live on.
