Alex is a Special Olympics golfer. Over the years, his family has become friends with my family. His parents invited us to join them for a traditional Canadian meal and family game night around Christmastime the past two years. In 2010, I wrote about Alex when he happily reacted to a speech I made at All Saints Church.
Alex is making plans for his high school prom. His sister posted a video on YouTube, in which Alex asks LPGA star Belén Mozo to be his prom date. I’ve heard that Belén has watched the video. Alex is awaiting her reply.
