One year ago today Bill and I lost our oldest son Jeff to ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease.
Last month scientists discovered the cause for ALS, certainly a major breakthrough in eventually discovering an effective treatment for this devastating disease.
To all of our many friends and customers who donated to our grandson Jake's fund raiser for ALS I want to say thank you. Your donations made a difference.
You made a difference in the way this family coped with a disease without a cure. You helped us see first hand how important it is to love, support and encourage one another. Your love and prayers carried us through our heartbreaking journey with Jeff. Your donations made a little boy feel important and now we know those donations helped researchers find the cause and hopefully very soon treatment for ALS.
We miss Jeff terribly, but this new discovery makes us feel that his death wasn't totally in vain. I know that by my sharing Jeff's journey it helped raised awareness for ALS.
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of my boy but I'm comforted in the belief that he is in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father with a mind that is clear, body that is strong and pictures of his family in his shirt pocket.
Encourage one another,
