Alex was a special little boy, who passed away from Leighs Disease in 2005, just before his third
birthday. Alex loved to watch Bear in the Big Blue House and Finding Nemo; he loved music (Chesney
Hawkes being his favourite!) and being pushed on his bike. His favourite hobby though was
throwing toy bricks (well almost anything); he was really good at that. He also loved to feed
the ducks at the local lake. Once he became ill, he loved to cuddle up and be read stories
and managed to light up the room with his eyes, even then.
Every day we miss him but continue to live our lives influenced by the lessons he taught us in
such a short time. Our lives are sadder for having lost him but also happier and more fulfilled
because of him.
As a family, it is hard to describe the support that Climb has been to us and still are. They provide
us with the knowledge that there are people and other families that understand how we feel
and cope with all the things that come with caring for and losing a sick child. This Tribute Fund
is not only our way of remembering Alex but also of saying ‘Thank you’ to Climb and
remembering the other families that are affected by these conditions too.
We love and miss you, Alex.
Mummy, Daddy and Zach XXXXXXX
I love you, Alex! From your little brother, Zach XXXXXXXXXX
