Hoffman - I will miss you and our weekly bullsh!t topics on Instagram. It’s crazy to think you’re gone after we just recently spoke about you getting a new car.

From our crazy nights in college to causal conversations as men, you were a good dude. Definitely the one that had the potential to get us all kicked out of a bar depending on how the night went, but we were always prepared, haha.

I wish we were able to get that one last trip in that we spoke about. We’ll have that beer together one day, cheers to you!

I worked with Alex for the last few years. He's always been kind and respectful and I enjoyed working with him. He was a very nice man and I'm going to miss working with him. Rest in peace, Alex. My heart is broken for your parents. As a parent I cannot imagine your sorrow. He will be missed by so many.

Dear Steve and Carol,
You are in my prayers during this hard time of grief. I knew the Brink family as kids at St. Rose and how many times I spent at the Hoffman home on sycamore as a kid.
I will pray for your sons soul that he too will be in the glory of God now.
Requiem aternum.
