Cast Spotlight: Alex Sanchez

"When my dad died after a long and painful illness, Mom pulled me close and whispered in my ear, “I feel so very sad, mijo.... But it is also a relief. Is that wrong?”

“It’s natural,” I assured her. “He was suffering.”

Her grip on my arm relaxed. And her body reclaimed its chin-up, square-shouldered

stance of strength and stamina."
