It is with deep sadness and sorrow that I announce the passing away of our daughter-in-law Alexandra, known to friends and family as Lexi. After a long battle with cancer she passed away Thursday morning at the age of 36.

Lexi made her first appearance in this blog in October of 2013 when I met her for the first time.

On May 31st, 2015, our son Matthew and Alexandra (Lexi) were married on a hilltop vista on our property.

In September 2016 Lexi gave birth to our grandson Evan Reed (known as Reed).

Lexi's first Christmas with new son Reed in December 2016. It was only a week after this joyous Christmas gathering that Lexi was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer.

Over the next 11 months Lexi received surgery to her neck, radiation treatment and chemo, while enjoying time with Reed and family.

Throughout the year Lexi tried to maintain a positive attitude and keep family life as normal as possible.
