I’ve been married to your son, Jeff, for almost 15 years. He’s a wonderful husband and a good, Christian man. We have 4 children: Olivia Rae (named after you), Hudson Layne, Luke Charles, and Kade Henry. Jeff is the best father! You are “Papa Ronnie” to our kids.
We also have an angel in Heaven, Jack Charles. I pray the two of you are taking care of each other.
I would have loved to meet you, but we will in time. Thank you for the gift of your son.
I’m proud to have the last name of Alexander and honored to be your daughter-in-law.
