I cannot even begin to fathom your loss.
Spending time with Alex was a joyful part of the day, his presence and playful antics brightened up the room in an instant.
Watching his interactions with you made it even more special, such a beautiful, close family unit, always up for an adventure. The perfect family for the lovely little boy I got to know.
I pray for you and yours and hope that his strength and light shines through your family forevermore.
