Alex passed on July 23, 2018. He had Lung cancer stage four and never smoked. He was told he had months to live but he won the battle against cancer when his spirit, attitude and determination to prove the doctors wrong kept him alive for almost 5 years. He worked everyday, traveled, got a big promotion and was alive to see a niece and nephew grow to be three and five. When he decided it was time to leave this world he returned to God two days later. He called the shots not Cancer.
The world goes on without you my son. How can it be the world minus one
We waited on Christmas your due date was then
But New Years came and we wondered when?
Then little Christmas came and so did you
Wrapped in fur with eyes so blue.
Your grace and charm and awesome laugh
You wowed them then you spread the graph
You wooed the girls, worked hard for Success And Pandora gave you an award for the best
To Dad and I you gave us your all
A protector to Dean
As you watched him crawl
You wined and dined us and then came the fall
We couldn’t believe it. How could this be
That God would take you away from me
My days lay idle it seems so glum that Alex won’t be calling to suggest more fun
But after all the words of sorrow and pain
We promised to go on and carry your name
We promised to live the way you would want
And you’d b the leader and never you’d daunt
So although our family had been torn apart
I promise to you we won’t b distraught
Although there will be times this pledge will be hard to bear
We’ll do it we’ll be happy for you my Dear
