Jean share’s a message of love inspired by the passing of Alex.
One Year Ago
With the one year anniversary of my beloved husband‘s transition into Eternal Life, I am reminded of his beautiful heart and keen intelligence.
There is so much that I’ve had to move thru this year, on my own… like a child learning to ride a bike without training wheels, so to speak. A shift in consciousness has awakened within myself that is huge and this transformation has brought forth aspects of myself that have been on the back burner for sometime.
I will share more of my personal journey as it percolates from me… but for now, what I feel is most important to share is that of Alex’s final message to the world.
The Message is Compassion
It’s interesting to me that as someone faces their own mortality, a pertinent question that arises is, what are their values now?
I can honestly say that at the end of Alex’s life, kindness and compassion for another and oneself was paramount. Perfection of living significantly pales in comparison to the power of, “Loving thy neighbor as thy self.”
Simple?…I’m not so sure because this phrase is actually asking us to love and have compassion with ourselves first. We’ve all heard it, we can’t give what we don’t have.
So let’s give ourselves the permission to be softer and kinder to ourselves first…to realize that we’re doing the best we can and then watch that compassionate love extend out to our neighbors and beyond.
Gratitude to “my best guy”, Alex…
you are forever in my heart.
Here is a video that Alex did for The Compassion Project, it was one of his last messages. I feel it’s worth repeating, as are most truthful declarations.

The world knew him as the host of Jeopardy, but to his kids he was just Dad.

Jean, you personify the power of compassionate words. Every syllable glows with a light that comes from a pure place. Thank you for sharing your thoughts at such a difficult time. Compassion for others must be the response that we give. I will do my best. You and your family remain in my prayers.🙏🏽
Love you so much, Cheryl!
My husband David Patchett was diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer February 2021. He passed away 3 months later May 10 2021. How ironic he had given me Alex’s book .. the answer is for Christmas. Like Alex, David was humble and full of wisdom and compassion for others. He was my best friend and soul mate. I too felt like a toddler trying to navigate life after his was cut short, we had both just retired. I am currently working on projects in his honor for the homeless in my area and have also sponsored a Guide Dog for the blind, fitting as David also was my loyal companion and navigator. God bless.
Jean, what a beautiful message, coming from your compassionate loving heart with such a generosity of spirit! Thank you dear 💜
Dear Jean and Family- Kindness and compassion indeed. This is Alex Trebek’s 82nd birthday, and I never forget the date nor Alex since he and I were born on the same day. So let’s celebrate a life well lived, and we who are still physically present rededicate ourselves to those values that made him so special.
With much Love,
Thank you so much, Dave. Happy Birthday!
