A Love Letter to My Alex by Sister Gracie

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
My Dearest Alex,

It’s been three years since you ran off to the Bridge and I miss you so very much.  Some days it seems like you were just here with me snuggling and having fun.  Other times it seems like you’ve been gone a long, long time.  It can be very confusing for those of us you left behind.

A lot has happened in the three years since you left.  Your selection of beautiful Lucy to help your Mom Hilary heal has worked out wonderfully, but you knew that it would. My health has been pretty stable and I haven’t tried to run off and be with you at the Bridge like I did two years ago.  I’m thankful you refused to let me do that, but gosh, I sure do miss you.

I’m thankful dear Alex that you visit me and assure me when I’m afraid.  I’m thankful for the good times we had when you were here.  I will always be thankful that you asked me to be your gal and that you asked me to marry you.

Although time does heal, my heart still hurts because you are gone.  But I know you’re not far, because I feel you in my heart each and every single day.  You’re really never far, when I think about you my heart smiles.

I shall always love you with all my heart dear Alex and I have your heart with me everywhere I go, and I always will.

Love, kisses and hugs,

Oh Gracie… I wish I could wrap my arms around you (and your parents) and hug you tight. You have no idea how hard your post made me cry… It is such a wonderful feeling, three years later, to see how much love you still have for my little boy – just as I do. I can’t believe how overtime you post you still include his Alex heart. You have no idea how much your love for him continues to blow me away. I am so thankful for your love and friendship too. You and your family are such an… Read more »

What a sweet letter!!! Ciara says she could have penned a very similar letter to her half-brother Thunder. He was truly her best pal ever and she misses him so very much. We are glad you still feel so close to Alex.

It sounds as though Alex brought love to your family and to his family too by facilitating a mutual friendship. That is a special gift worth acknowledging and holding on to ! We oftener wondered about the Alex heart and now think the gesture behind it, lovely 🙂
