Team Alec: We have heartbreaking news to report. As many of you know already, sadly, Alec lost his battle with cancer Saturday March 22nd.
We are so very thankful for the amazing generosity and overwhelming support that has been given to the Taber family during Alec's illness. I know the family has found deep comfort in this.
Funeral services are set for Friday March 28th at 11am at Dove Creek High School. The family has requested everyone to wear Team Alec shirts, or a favorite jersey, or blue and gold. A dinner will follow at the Dove Creek Community Center. Jackie Banks is coordinating the dinner: please contact her for info. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alec Taber Scholarship Fund at the Community Bank in Dove Creek. Cards can be sent to the family in care of ROCK at: PO Box 364; Dove Creek, CO 81324
For those who still wish to donate here, funds will now go towards defraying funeral expenses, as well as covering outstanding medical expenses for Alec and continuing medical expenses for Carson.
A message from Kerri on Saturday night:
"Today I lost my best friend. Today I watched a hearse take my son away. Today the other half of me went to heaven. Today I have no words. Today my little boy is without pain. Today he looked peaceful. My world will never ever be complete again. I will always wait for him to come through the door. I would give anything for one more I love you. I may have lost my world today but for 12 years I was the lucky one that got to be his mom."
God bless this family.
