Starting on March 31 of every year we go through six birthdays in one 31 days. JP is first, then Sister Mary Consolata on April 19, Joey on April 25, Mary on April 28, then Alex on April 29, and finally Robby on April 30. I think all those birthdays - all that celebration and gratefulness for the gift of these brothers and sisters (sons and daughters) helps to make Alex's birthday sweet instead of sad.
If things had worked out as "planned", Alex would be graduating from Ave Maria University in May. (He would be 23 - I got it wrong in the video.)
We sure do miss this cute little guy - God was so kind to give him to us.
Happy 23rd Birthday Alex!
