He has a way with words, that is for sure. It must give you strength to know he is with you in spirit, as are we all.
Group hug

He did good Gin. Made me cry. Crying

Yes, he done good Lovey dubby He called last night and I asked would he mind if I posted his letter and story. He has another version of the story that is a tad different that he's going to send me. Sure could use an Alex hug right now, but his words meant a lot especially since the letter came yesterday. Crying Group hug

I agree I agree And a bit of Crying too.

How wonderful to know he feels and cares for you.

Still sending Group hug Group hug

A cyber hug is not the same as an in person one... but we give what we can.

Lovey dubby .

Lovely photo Ginger.

We'll be anticipating the other version of Alex's story.

Still holding your hand. Still hugging you tight!
