Dear Alexander,

Dear Alexander,

On June 29th 2009 you graced our lives with your smiles, laughter, and curiosity.

You played with your cat Max, enjoyed walks with me and watched cartoons with mommy while you snuggled together.  You played the baby Jesus at saint E’s.

Then you became sick. Even with your Sickness, you smiled, flirted with the nurses and confused the doctors with your uniqueness. You inspired mommy to write about your daily life and showed the world how strong you were in adversity.

Your last month of life showed us how life should be lived by visiting the zoo, and laughing at the wonders of the popcorn popping.

We were there when you died on April 1, 2011. We held you in our arms, we sang you a song and said your nightly prayers and held your hand. We blew you bubbles.  We were there when you started a new journey without us.

We know that you look down on us.

We cried a lot over the past year at all of the lost moments we will never have because of your death. We slowly heal the large gap in our lives. We know that you are watching over us with the butterflies you send and the places we end up in. We hope that you get the bubbles that we send up to you when we visit your grave. We hope that that you helped God pick a great soul for us for your baby brother or sister as our journey here on earth continues.

We miss you and think of you ever day.

Love Daddy & Mommy
