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, In Memoriam
Brandy Vela - In Memoriam

We created “See Something. Say Something.” after the loss of 4 of our friends to suicide. It hurt; every loss does. But the loss felt by suicide, especially when the victims aren’t even out of high school, is something completely different.

So when I heard the story of 18 year old Brandy Vela, the Texas Senior who committed suicide a few days ago, my heart broke. Not just for Brandy, but for her family, friends, and my peers who have and might still consider suicide an option. 

Teen suicide is a reality we don’t often talk about; at least not on the level we need to.

Talking about loss isn’t easy but it must be done. And we have to be able to talk about teen suicide, not just after one has happened, but before. No person, teen or otherwise, should be pushed to the point where they feel like they need to end their life.

“See Something. Say Something.” is a campaign, for teens by teens. A campaign not just for the friends we’ve lost, but also for the friends we’re fighting to save. For friends, for family, and for teens like Brandy.
