The Sunshine of his Life; My Amazing Son Alex
Today, I go "Down the Rabbit Hole" to talk about my amazing son Alex. As we approach five very long, yet somehow also short, years without him it feels like the perfect time to share more of what we had with him while he was alive. Today, I do share a little more of the story leading up to his death by suicide on Aug 7, 2016, but mostly I just talk a little but more about his life and the amazing human that he was during his 21 years here on earth. He was funny and smart and no, he didn't love change, but was the best friend anyone could ask for - and one of the best kids a mom could ask for. And I didn't talk about them in this episode but HIS HUGS WERE THE STUFF OF LEGENDS! When Alex hugged you his love was felt!! XO THANK YOU for listening, it means more than I can say. Sending so much love & peace to you all!
Let's all strive to live more in the sunshine of their lives, and less in the shadows of their death
