    Not many of the people you meet in life make an impact on you. However, Alex was one of the people who made an impact on everyone he met. He could hold a full room’s attention just by being his great self. He was also always there to talk to for any issue that arose in your life. No matter how big or small, he would listen and try his best to help. There are not many people in the world who are able to have such an effect, and I am thankful to have had Alex as a part of my life, even if it was for a short while. I hope that all of the Klinkhammers can find happiness in this time of sorrow because in all honesty you know he would be there trying to make you smile right now and wipe those tears away. God bless.

  25. Fargo So many good memories with you Alex, God bless you, you will be missed very much buddy. Thoughts and prayers to your family.

  26. Charles, Sandy, Matthew, Kiara and family,

    There is a thread woven with love that keeps family together. Our loved ones live on in our hearts and memories. May you find comfort in knowing Alex will always be with you.

    Praying for your strength, comfort and peace,
