He was my first “grand baby” . And he was so special. He would put up with me taking silly pictures of him in baskets and pots. Once I find those baby pics I’ll get them posted for you. He would march around my moms kitchen with a pie pan on his head and make us laugh. He would lay on the love seat at home with his uncle Jeff on the couch across the room and put his arms behind his head and watch tv just like his uncle. We loved our little copycat.
The first time we got him once he went to live in KC we took him to Taco Bell and he had an alleluia experience! We introduced him to Mt dew. His eyes got so big when he took a sip and then his little arm went straight up praising God for such a sweet nectar! It was such a sight . I don’t think he was even 2 at that time.
I love Alexander so much and I’m going to miss him doing all the things I thought he’d do, go to college, get married, have his own kids. But I do know he finished Gods’ plan for him and God called him home for his eternal reward.
I hope he gets to meet all his relatives that were already gone before he arrived on earth and enjoys the love they have for him.
Thinking of Alex’s mom, dad, grandmother, aunts, uncles, And beloved cousins And friends with deepest sympathy. My prayers go out to you. May your love of Alex be extended to his Heavenly Father, God, so you can continue a walk on earth taking you to the riches of heaven. Love , comfort and peace through Christ our Lord.
