"2 years ago today July 4th I lost my best friend, partner, love, companion, and rock. I do not wish to be mournful and sad but rather celebrate the vibrant person that Alexander was and live life to the fullest. He always said “this is not a dress rehearsal, enjoy it.”
The Family lost a son, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin, mediator and friend.
Friends lost a loyal, forthright, opinionated, smiling, congenial, creative, helpful and dedicated individual who stuck with you until the end.
In knowing all that and who he was and how he enjoyed life let us salute him with our joy of him and the life we have yet to live and do it with style. He didn’t like mess of any kind! My pain has been particularly difficult; weeping endures for a night, but JOY comes in the morning; It’s time for my morning. July 4th is now a double holiday for me as I celebrate it’s original purpose and now add Alexander to the FIREWORKS that he so deserved. Rest in total peace my dear."

"Oh, Alexander, you are every where. I feel you in the wind especially when the trees sway. I feel you when the sun settles on my face as I sit here and there amidst the passerbys.

You are with me."
