    I wish to send our condolences from the Minnesota Sorensen family here in Chaska, MN. Dana, Katie, Luke and Sydney send our deep gratitude in having met Alex and shared time with him while he was married to my Grandma Edith. He was a very nice man who I enjoyed talking with… Especially Blue Jay baseball. You will be missed Alex… I am happy that the suffering you have endured through your battle with cancer and dementia is not something you have to feel anymore… I hope to see you again someday!!!
