I know I am a little late to leave a message on here, Alex has recently been on my mind and I just thought Id share how I felt about Alex. Well for starters Alex never failed to make anyone smile or laugh, he had such a goofy personality and he was always jumping of the walls with energy. Alex cared deeply about his friends, he always expressed love and compassion toward all of his friends. He helped me through a lot of my personal problems, he always knew what to say and how to act. He had such a great personality and a great big contagious smile. I miss him more and more everyday, but I know to keep a smile on my face and a positive attitude, because that is exactly what he would have wanted to see.

Alex had never put a bad memory in my head. The ring of his name brought joy to many people. He'd always made sure to fit a few jokes into every conversation. Alex was an amazing person, brother, son, and friend. We miss you a lot Alex, and I just hope we meet again someday. One of the best memories I had with Alex was our so called, "first date". I was so nervous because it was the first time I had met his mom and Clyde. Alex considered me as Clyde's long, lost twin. Another great memory was on December 10th, Alex, Dreama, and I went to the movie theatre in Madisonville Mall. He was the first boy to walk into my life with no judgement and to fill my heart with joy every time I saw his smile. I miss you bunches Alex William Baucum. -jaiden

Cassie, Chad, Braxton, and Callie,
My thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this time. Alex was one of the all time sweetest, kindest, and most hardworking student that I've had the pleasure to welcome into our 6th grade Reading and English class last year. He took so much ownership of the class that he made the Big Red Truck sign from word, painted it, and recorded his name on the back. He was so proud to bring his skills to decorate our classroom and such a talented young man!!! His contagious smile and Quick Witt added a wonderful chemistry to pick others up on a bad day. Yes, teachers do get to develop more of a personal relationship with some students over others. He melted my heart with his kindness and innovative thinking. I still have the sign he made us, newly hung in the classroom at LIvermore Elementary. I will get this to your family soon.

Praying for peace and comfort for each of you that surpasses on Earthly understanding.

Alex was a sweet kid. He loved to draw in my Art class. I still have a picture of his artwork from 4th grade. We entered into the high school art show and he won the 1st place blue ribbon. He was so proud of that ribbon. He kept asking me before the art show "Do you think I can win?' He had such a big smile on his face when I presented it to him at school.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Alex,

Words can not describe my sympathy for your loss. You were dearly loved. You were the craziest and coolest kid I know. I miss you so much❤ I wish you could still be down here with me. You were not only a classmate but a true friend. You were always there for me when I needed you. I love and miss you dearly. Alex it's so hard knowing that your gone. This is the hardest thing I've ever thought to believe. You were a great kid. Chaning and Harley miss you dearly. Chaning especially, he was not only your friend but a true brother. It's not the same walking in music class and you not there or walking into lunch and you not be in your seat. But, I do believe that you are looking down on all of your loved ones. Jaiden misses you more than anything. I really wish I could bring you back down here. You were like a brother. We have known each other for two strong years. And they have been the best. I might've said you got on my nerves sometimes but we just laughed and got over it. Alex I know I've already said this a million times. But I miss you So Much. Just come and see me sometimes. I'll know when you do.
