Aleksandrov, Alexey
Written by

Age 23; Russia, Solnechnogorsk.

I met Alexey early in childhood. Hismother, Lyudmila Alexeyevna Aleksandrova, was my kindergarten teacher. Heoften came there, and we played football together. Thatis how memet.

We lived in neighboring buildings, and since our families were friends since Iwas five. Wevisited them several times a week. I, of course, went because of 'Lokha', since whenever he showed up things got happy, interesting, and we would always do something. Onecould not get through the holidays without him he would perform magic tricks, drawings, and contests. Hecharged up people with his positive energy. Ihave never met a more buoyant, cheerful person.

He was attentive to all around him, courteous with older people, and gallant with the ladies (he taught me to take a lady's coat upon arrival and to be polite and this was when he was but 14years old), he always rescued and helped others. Hewas a hard-working person. Iremember how on our school holiday we worked on city improvement projects together. Healways helped his mother around thehouse.

Alexey loved his mother very much. OnMarch 8th, her birthday, he always gave her something. Ifhe did not buy something, then he would make something surprising for her. Every holiday was special to him. Inmany of his qualities he remains to this day the person Ihold up as my example.

At 15he entered the trade school for becoming a pastry chef. Heloved this job, and at home would experiment in the kitchen.

At 18Alexey got his draft notice. Hewas one of the few who wanted to join the army, to fulfill his duty to the nation, to become a real man, a defender of the fatherland (I am repeating his words). Hewas very worried when there were some problems with his call-up.

We saw him off to the army with tears in our eyes, but he was happy. Heserved in the strategic rocket forces in the city of Mirny (in the Barnaul district). Oh, how he made his mother happy when he sent her a videocassette. There he was, a soldier, sitting with the boys, so happy and playing on the guitar, sending his greetings and, of course, saying that all was well, and the de-mob wassoon.

Two years passed unnoticed, but what a joy the meeting was! 'Alyosha' came home on my mother's birthday. Wewere at his family's house, everyone was gathered together, and then there was a ring at the door. Iopened up and Isee flowers and simply could not believe my eyes 'Lokha' was standing there! Healways loved surprises.

After the army began a new, adult, conscientious life. Alexey took culinary courses by correspondence, and then went to work in a restaurant. Wehad been there before, since it was on our way to school.

He was an open person who drew others to him. Someone reminded me how on the very first day of meeting him, they invited him to a wedding. Hehad not been working at his job long, and already all his coworkers were going to visit him at his dacha. Andso passed two and a halfyears.

He was a person who had many plans and ambitions, and, more importantly, Alexey made them happen. Whoknows what he could have done if things had turned out otherwise.

I think that, not just in my heart, but also in the hearts of all those who knew 'Losha', he will remain a bright, kind, and sympathetic person. Heloved life, and every moment of it, with all hisheart.

Written by Sergey Savelev, his friend.

I had wanted another son, and was very anxiously awaiting him. Ithank God that he sent such a person to me. Iwas never ashamed ofhim.

He grew up sociable and cheerful, and loved his brother. Ialways told my sons: a brother with a brother is strong. Myhusband died young, when Alyosha was but a year and eight months. Mysons always helped me out. Alyosha told me: Mamochka, Idon't begrudge you a thing. And now help goes away fromhim.

Alexey wanted to become a real man, and entered the army happily. Hecompleted his service successfully. After the army he worked as a cook and studied at the culinary college. Later he wanted to enter the Plexanovsky institute and study English and work as a chef on cruise ships. Hewanted to see the world. Hewas also an avowed fisherman, and knew every reservoir in our region.

More than anything, Alyosha wanted to meet a nice girl and start a family. Andhis dream came true. Hesaid: There really are such girls! After two dates he invited Yulia to that musical.

They say that just before death a person is happy. Hepassed while asleep.

Written by Lyudmila Aleksandrova, his mother.
