Kat and Craig and kids...
Im sorry to hear Alex passed away today. I was hoping and praying that he would be able to come home. He was a mighty fighter, giving you so many precious days with him. He isn't hurting now and God will take care of him as you would. God Bless.

You, and your family, are in my thoughts and prayers Kat. If you ever need to talk, cry, etc let me know and I will either talk with you via pm or call you. I just wish there was more I could do :(
Kat & Family, I cannot imagine what you are going through, but I do know that Alex is a very special little boy and he is watching over all of you, and although he was only here for a short time, he has touched so many lives. I wish that i could be there to hug you in person, but instead my prayers for you will have to do.
I can't take away your pain, I can't whisper a magic phrase to take away your sadness, but I can hold some of it for you for a time. My heart aches for you, and a bit of all of us left this world with little Alex today. I feel a bit of peace knowing our children have another guardian angel, and one who was loved so very very much. Time and love will ease your pain...one day at a time...and all the way we're out here all over the world loving you and praying for your family.

Kat and family-
All day long I've been tearful over the loss of your precious little baby boy. What a tremendous roller coaster you and your family has ridden over the past weeks, and how brave and strong you all are. I'm sure that there are no words that could ever soothe your aching souls right now, and there may not be any comfoting thoughts, but Alex is in a place all his own where he can breathe and be a littlle boy. He'll always be watching over you and always remember how much you loved him and cared for him in the short time he was with us on this earth. I don't know you from anywhere else but BBC, but you and your family are truly an amazing inspiration! Thank you for sharing Alex's life with us! I will continue to pray for you and hope that you find comfort soon.
