I cannot express enough how it saddens me of your loss. I totally understand how you must be feeling. You have been so strong through all of this .
Andreas was so helpful to both of you and I am so proud to have seen how he could get Alex to
smile and know how much he could communicate with Alex. All his grandchildren should be proud of themselves for being there for both of you during such trying times. We will always be there for you. You have such a wonderful and loving family.
