In Memoriam
Our beloved son and brother Alexander Clifford Peiser passed away on October 10, 2017. Alex was a junior at Hanahan High School. In addition to being a member of the National Honor Society and Beta Club, he was active in theater and the Hanahan Marching Pride Band. His interest in theater began early and he appeared in productions of “The Little Mermaid”, “Hairspray,” “Romeo and Juliet 31 Flavors” and “Juvie.”

Alex was a member of the Circular Congregational Church and was active in the youth group. He enjoyed many activities throughout his life including Cub Scouts; Boy Scouts and Songaham Taekwondo.

Alex had a keen intellect, mischievous humor, radiant spirit and a loving heart. He wanted all of his friends and family to know that he loved them, and specifically stated that if he had any conflicts with anyone, he had forgiven them and that those conflicts should be forgotten. His last wish was that his friends and family would remember only the good times they shared together.

Alex’s family include his mother, Sharon Winkler, his step-father, Noel J. Sterrett; his father, Robert S. Peiser, Jr.; his brother, Robert S. Peiser III; his step-sister, Natalie Sterrett; his nephew and niece, Robert S. Peiser IV and Reagan Peiser; his aunt, Marijean Reith; his uncle, Bryan Reith; his cousins Jessica Reith and Zac Reith; and his grandmothers Jean Sterrett and Kayleen Hart Winkler.

We will miss him dearly.

A celebration of Alex’s life will be held on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at Circular Congregational Church, 150 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29401.

Flowers for the service should be sent to Circular Congregational Church after 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 17, 2017.

Hear Us, What's Up?
While most Americans were at the polls casting their votes on November 8, #SeeSomethingSaySomething teens were capturing personal narratives from Taos middle and high-school students in support of our new teen suicide prevention campaign.

Witnessing teens shedding tears and fighting for the lives of other teens? Powerful is an understatement!

We know last night’s election came with a few surprises. And as a Person of Color who questions whether my interests (and safety) will be on the agenda of the new administration, I understand how upsetting today can be.

But here’s the deal. To fight for representation and opportunities, we have to be living first. And that’s what our work here is all about. We have much to look forward to. We’re still here able to fight another day.

As Harlo (a suicide attempt survivor) reminded us yesterday, life really is precious. We must keep pushing forward.

Please checkout the encouragement and coping tips shared by our partners at Crisis Text Line. They are right – you got this America!

And we got you . . .
