Road Trip with Dan P.

"Dave Ghrol was the drummer for Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, Them crooked vultures, and the lead singer/guitar player for the Foo Fighters. He is from Warren, Ohio - my hometown. A few years ago an alley was dedicated to him and smattered with original art of him. Sarah said Alex was a fan of the Foo Fighters, so here he is next to my favorite painting on the alley." Dan P.

Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Lake Michigan

We decided that we wanted Alex to tag along with us to Silver Lake Sand Dunes on the shores of Lake Michigan. This place has tons of sun, tons of sand and tons of fun. Everything that any 14 year old boy would love. Here you can go crazy on dirt bikes, four wheelers and dune buggies. Then you can cool off in the waters of Lake Michigan.
Alex seemed like he had a great time. It was a pleasure having him with us.

I am cropduster on TwoPeas and found out about your project through that site. I think that this is a wonderful, memorable thing that you are doing in Alex' memory. I cannot imagine the pain that you must have went through and are still experiencing.(((HUGS))) You and your family are very inspirational in turning a tragedy into something that I'm sure Alex is thinking is so cool from above. My son is the same age as Alex would be so this was personal for all of us. My son and husband were instrumental in telling me what poses to put Alex in to get the best shot. Maybe some of the pictures could have turned out better. But I don't think Alex really cared. He was too busy checking out the machines and the view. :-)
I wish you and your family the very, very best!

New Hampshire with Janet

Hi Jennie,
 Alex had a great time at Rockywold Deephaven camp on Squam Lake in New Hampshire, climbing &
hiking in the woods, then we went back to Salem (the yellow house) and finally left from Boston. That's the Mayflower in background tho it doesn't show too well, and then to Boston Childrens' Museum which was fabulous. Just wanted you to see where
he'd been.
Hope to see you Sunday,
Love, Janet
