On Friday night, more close to 300 people gathered outside Alex School for the vigil. 

Frankie Brantley is a fellow senior at the school, and says when her family moved to Alex two years ago, Alexander was the first person who reached out to her to make her feel welcome.

"He was loved by a lot of people," she said. "We will never forget him." 

Alexander's funeral will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Alex school gymnasium.
