  4. Belinda,
    Henry just came home to tell me about Alex, I have no idea what to say to you…that I am sorry doesn’t begin to cover anything. My memories of Alex are so strong and good. I was so proud that he and Henry became friends and hoped that they would continue…but growing up as boys has so many pitfalls early on….as a mother, it seems that I am the last to know what is going on. You are so in my thoughts, prayers, and mind…I will reach out to you in a few days..until then, you know where I am and can surely call any time…my best regards to you and your husband.
