  16. Alex, you are a great, thoughtful and kind soul who typically saw the humor and beauty in your day-to-day. You often pointed out that beauty to me as well, in our hikes or wildflower picking adventures, I learned so much from the smallest moments we had together. I know you’re somewhere enjoying In Bruges and finding mushrooms and flowers yet to be discovered. You are a great, patient friend, Alex, and I will miss your smile, book recommendations, and advice very much. I love you.

I will never forget the great times we had together our senior year of high school. Although you are gone your memory will live on through me, your friends and your family. You were one of the people in my life I can definitely say I had no bad memories of. I hope you’re feeling better Alex.

  22. Dear Witonsky Family,I overlapped with your son at Hamilton and didnΓÇÖt know him well, but was in a few English classes with him. Whenever I was in his discussion group, I was always very impressed by his insight and dry sense of humor. IΓÇÖm so sorry for you loss.

  23. Dear Witonsky family,Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. Alex and I studied together throughout our time at Hamilton and we were together in Beijing, growing close during that time.

With sympathy,Oliver
