Alex, my little boy-boy you left me
and the family much to soon. I miss you terribly. When I got the call from your
"sissy" that you weren't doing well I had no idea what I was going to be faced
with less than 24 hours later. You had faced illness in the past but nothing
like this. You got so very sick so quickly. I am still numb in some ways. I've
been dreaming of you too. I loved you so very much and I know that you knew that
you were loved! I'm so glad that you went with the family to Philadelphia to
celebrate my birthday on April 9th....of course you weren't going to have it any
Next to Masai you were the greatest gift that your Sissy could have given me. I
remember your first winter here after bringing you from Sunny CA. You didn't
like that white stuff called snow and tried very carefully not to step in it
when you went out! That was the year that you got a very bad cold. But you were
ready for subsequent winters for sure.
Your Sissy was happy to have you stay with her and she always told me about the
conversations that she had with you in the mornings when she was getting ready
for work and how you knew when the weekends were here because you knew you were
going to momma's house. She said on Saturday morning when she and Masai were
preparing to go out you would jump into your bag and demanded to go too!
Then when you arrived at the house and I would bring you in you could not wait
to get out of the bag to get to your 'NaNa" who loved you dearly. She would let
you sleep with her and let you practically take over the bed and of course she
would sneak treats to you too and for that you simply adored her. She would of
course tell me that whatever that was that you ate just happen to have fallen on
Your family in Cali loved you too! even though your Uncle Al said you would be a
snack for his dog! Your Auntie's loved you and took care of you too little boy.
You brought me such comfort Alex, and you loved me unconditionally but even more
when you got extra treats! I've been tempted to ask Why? did you have to leave
but it's enough to know that God's grace is sufficient to get me through.
I love you Juan Alejandro Gonzales Davidson AKA Alex and you will be in my heart
