Alexus (Lexi) Bonasera-Collins
Dec 29, 1991 - July 14, 2020
My Lexi struggled back in her teens with drugs but she had been drug free for so long! She had an amazing life with Patrick and her new baby, Liam. Lexi was so talented. She was an awesome singer and was recording music with a producer.
Lexi was a very kind soul who would help anyone, even a total stranger. She lit up a room when she entered. She was such a ray of sunshine! Everyone turned to look at her. Lexi was so full of life and I know she would never have left her baby on purpose. She was a wonderful
mother!!! Lexi was my best friend.
Unfortunately, she was trying to help a distant cousin kick her own drug habit and Lexi ultimately gave into the demons. I believe she got drugs that were tainted or she started where she left off back in the day!
I feel so empty without her. I feel as I have no love to give. The pain is excruciating and I am so depressed, angry, confused, hurt and lonely. I miss my baby girl so very much. I miss her smiles and giggles. I miss her walking in my door with all her bags as if she was moving in. I miss watching her play with her baby. I miss her looking up to me as her role model. I miss her friendship and her phone calls. I miss her multiple one sentence texts that used to irk me. I no longer have a fear of dying anymore because I am hoping I will be with her again! I wish I just had one more minute with her, just one!! I wish this pain would soften but I don’t believe it will because I will always miss her and long to see her!
Alexus was the most beautiful young woman I have ever seen! I LOVE YOU LEXI BEAN TO THE MOON AND BACK!! I am thankful to you for giving me my grandson, baby Liam. I am so blessed to have a piece of you.
