    Lauren,
    Everytime I see Alex’s picture, it takes my breath away. I can’t imagine what it does to you.

    I still remember him like he’s four, you know, the only time he was smaller than me. I miss you, and him, and China. I drove passed where it used to be the other day and it nearly made me cry.

    China was a magical place. When the lot was up for sale, we threw mud and rocks at the sign so no one could call the owner. I don’t think we understood the concept of vandalism. Or maybe we just didn’t care.

    He was one of the few people i would look forward to seeing, because i knew i would never have a dull moment around him.
    I miss him, day and a day out. It gets bearable, then worse.
    I honestly can’t even imagine what you are going through.

    It’s horrible, and it has been getting worse with time. I received some life-changing good news less than two weeks ago, and I’m happy about it, but I can’t really enjoy anything the way I used to. Even if everything goes well the rest of my life (and it won’t), I will still have this tremendous sense of loss that I will never be able to get over.

    I don’t understand why things like this happen. And I hate hearing, “God has a plan.” My “God” doesn’t “plan” on any mother burying her child or any sibling grieving over such a premature loss. My “God” would make sure that Alex would be reading a book and toking up in Denton right now. My “God” wouldn’t make anyone have to suffer a loss so great.
