April wrote this early one morning last week in Memory of our grandson Alexavier A. Cochran. He was born to Josh and Tera on July 4th 2011 and passed away on August 13 2011. We thought it especially cool that he had been born on our anniversary.
I was going to call him “Spike”and buy him lots of leather. I don’t know why. I guess grandpas do stuff like that cause they can. Maybe as he grew I would have chosen a different nick-name. Maybe just called him Alex, bought him a surfboard and a pair of Lost Boardshorts. Either way I was looking forward to it. That’s the thing about babies. Not so many memories yet but all the anticipated possibilities under the stars. All the discoveries to be shared.
Fair winds Alex, I love and miss you….
