Alexander died shortly after the car accident. His parents and the police are hoping the released photo of this final text serves as a reminder to all of us to avoid distracted driving and texting while driving.  At all costs.

Said Alexander’s mother, Sharon Heit, ” In a split second you could ruin your future, injure or kill others, and tear a hole in the heart of everyone who loves you.”
