News of the death of Mount Washington Elementary School Crossing Guard Alex Liu saddened the school community.
The quiet, friendly crossing guard had formed an unspoken bond with many of 's students and parents. Of those who spoke to Patch about Liu after his passing, many recalled having few conversations with him, but were still struck by his unwavering friendliness.
We will miss his friendly smiles and waves as we come and go to school, and would like to extend our condolences to his family. We take comfort in knowing that he got a chance to spend some time with his family after his collapse at school, due to the life saving efforts of several of our parents.
