Mothers instinctively know certain things. Drew's love for Alex was obvious to any woman(even if just a listener) who has given birth. Tess, you have a good man that will help you through what will undoubtedly be the most difficult days of your life. We are thinking of you and your sons every day. Please know that we care and would always help you with anything you would ever need. I am a Mother-You are in my prayers every night.

Drew & Tess & Family, I have only the memory's that Drew shared with us all on the radio of Alex and his brother. He sounded like a great kid, they two boys sounded like very smart and grounded kids from the small window we all got to see through. I to lost a 15 year old daughter very unexpectedly. In April it will be 2 years. It still hurts everday and I dont know if I will ever be the same. But I try a bit harder every day. I just wanted you to know your not alone. Again, Im so sorry for your loss. You all will be in my prayers. J.L.Savine
I cannot imagine the grief and the pain your family is in. My heart and thoughts are with all of you. God bless Alex.
I am so very sorry for your loss. No parent should ever have to bury their child. My heart breaks for you at this time of tragedy.
