When I first met Alex I could never have imagined one day I would be carrying her casket and saying goodbye. I still expect to see her again with plans for her next tattoo. How does someone so young pass so soon? Today was an inspiring, sad, and happy day. I am still in disbelief with a little numbness like a fresh slap to the face. So thankful for the perspective that was gifted to me from a terminally ill girl almost half my age. Some lessons are bitter sweet.
Alex, today your friends and family celebrated your existence. It was a great party. Hope you enjoyed.
