Death of a Friend Poem

I met Lexi Tullmann in middle grade when I was walking home with her one day we were playing around. She was out of breath but she never told me that she had a brain tumor. She told me in 2nd grade when she had her first chemo treatment. Everybody in her class wore yellow bandanas that said we will help you fight.

Lexi Lou We All Miss You

Lexi why did you go
you knew we would miss you so

4/08/07 (Easter)

Angel’s Wings,
Alexa had strength That couldn’t be bought
While others would whimper, She stayed strong and fought.
8 malignant brain tumors For 6 years in a row
If she was suffering, Nobody would know.
Well years passed, And minutes flew
Her time was getting shorter, As her love for life grew.
Well one day, God asked her To go get her wings And join him in paradise Doing heavenly things.
Her friends would all miss her, her family, too.
That charisma, that smile Making each day new
Everyday I wake up And I pray to her loud,
“Lexi babe, I hope You’re having fun In the clouds.”
