Rest in Peace Alicia

I’ll forever remember waking up suddenly without explanation at 1:27am. I checked my phone and Facebook. I had a message from your mother asking me to have Cameron (my husband, your ex) call her. I woke him up immediately. In the back of my mind I already knew. I held my breath as I heard the ringing. Your mom answered “Alicia’s dead”. 

Although I’ll never understand how you got mixed up in it all or the decisions you made.
I’m still, everyday, working through the anger I feel toward you. We weren’t ever really friends, but as mothers and co-parents we shared a mutual respect for one another. 

I hope your soul is at peace and you are no longer struggling. 
I will take care of OUR son and honor your memory. 

Rest In Peace Alicia
