Danielle, I am so sorry for the loss of your father as well as for Scott. I can not even imagine what you are going through right now. I am always here for you any time you need a friend to talk to. I am so sorry and you will be in my prayers.
This was a shock to me as well as to everyone else. Dr. Alexander was the greatest dentist ever. He always impressed me with the newest dental equipment that would come out that no one else ever had. I will miss talking, joking and always getting advice from him about something when I went for my appointments. It will be hard to find another dentist who will be as great as he was, I will always remember him. My Condolences to his family.
