Gabriella Grace Alexander, our little Angel in Heaven…

Gabriella Grace Alexander born on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 at 6:03 am 7 lbs, 11 oz, and 22 in long. She is no longer with us but that doesn’t take away how much she was loved and the fact, somehow, for some reason, God has a plan for her short, sweet life. We chose her name to mean something special. Our little angel who will always be remembered. Gabriella means “God Gives Strength”. That is what we are clinging to. Gabriella is the female version of Gabriel. Gabriel is seen as a messenger for God, and our prayer is Gabriella’s short life can be a message for/from God.
In the midst of all this God is still there. God is our rock. Psalms 18:2. It doesn’t take away the hurt, the tears and the confusion. We wanted to thank everyone for their prayers, support, and generosity in the midst of all this. We have had so many, “If you need anything” from so many people. To be honest we don’t know what we need right except for prayers, love, and understanding. Some days will be easier than others. Some days we have been able to talk, and some days not at all. We also ask for patience from our friends and family as we learn how to deal with everything. There will be days we want to be around people, and days we want to be left alone. It is going to process and one I honestly don’t know how long it will last, but knowing we have such amazing people in our lives helps and comforts. Also, I know people would love to see pictures of Gabriella, but we’re not quite ready to share those on social media yet. Thank you all for your love and support.

God Bless,
Megan, David, and Gabriella Alexander
