  • So sorry to read about the loss of Robert, Don Alexander was my Father in Law from Attleboro<Mass. I was married to their only son Michael who passed away in 1998 in the VA Hospital in Virginia. The Alexander Family was in my life such a short time as Michael and I had only been married 7 months before his passing. My love and prayers go out to the family at this time. With Love, Katie Alexander Ward, of Grove City, Ohio

    • Katie, how very thoughtful of you to remember my father. Mike was my cousin and I got to know him a little more toward the end. But uncle Donny was a favorite and all three, including aunt Jan , were taken far too soon. Julie

  • I love you Dad. I will miss you more than words can say but am comforted in the knowledge that you will always walk beside me. You have given me a true north which I know will always lead me down the right path. All my love forever. Julie
