    My sincerest, warmest and deepest sympathies to the Jorquera family.

    Alex was a great man. His smile was infectious, his laughter was enlightening, the unconditional love he gave, irreplaceable. For almost 20 years I had the pleasure and privileged of having Alex in my life, he was always someone I could count on. I loved him very much. My heart hurts knowing we will never have another one of our late night phone calls, playful banter back and forth or a walk through another little city fair – him embarrassing himself trying to win me a stuffy. I am however grateful to have had Alex in my life. A diamond in the rough. A treasure forever in my heart.

    I love you Alex. Rest peacefully my friend. Heather
