It was crushing to hear of Alex Riley’s passing last night. Of the few times I got to meet him, I immediately thought of how I wanted to get to know him better. I regret I won’t get to. His light was strong and bright, and it feels wrong it won’t be shining for us anymore.

He was the kindest person I ever met, his positivity radiated, his smile was infectious, and although I didn’t know him all that well, he left a lasting impression on my life and this news is so heartbreaking to hear.
