My Beautiful Boy Alex, this is the 2nd Christmas without you and trust me when I say it has not become any easier.

I miss your beautiful face that beamed every year as I would tease you with presents, opening some before Christmas because I couldn't wait.

I loved watching your reaction when I actually got you something you wanted and we would hug and laugh and then go try it out.

Impossible for me to tell you how much I miss you my Love, there are simply no words.

I wake up every day my first though going to that you are no longer here. I am not being as eloquent as I would like to be because whenever I think of you it tears a bit at my soul each time. I still cry. Yes my Baby I still cry because I will never see you again, but my love for you has only grown. I love you my Beautiful Boy. Mom
