God called upon Alex Laynor last night.  Many of you know his story as I shared it here some time ago.  He fought a long, difficult battle.  He did so with a heart filled with love, a positive attitude and an appreciation for life like no man I’ve ever known.  He inspired so many people.  I’m still amazed that on the day we met, one conversation, one real, raw, open, conversation in a parking lot in downtown Austin with Alex, about his life, his love for his wife, his children and his outlook, unequivocally changed who I am, the way I see my life and the choices I make.  I pray that Danielle, Lexi and Austin and the rest of his family can find peace during this very difficult time.  And may Alex rest in the arms of the Lord.  He will be missed dearly by many.
