Loosing Tim from ALS/I am coming back slowly

After losing my brother Tim form ALS in Feb. I am still grieving over him and remembering the horrible suffering he went through. I also at the same time I have had personal private family matters to deal with. After Tim passed I was divorced after 23 years of marriage.

If anyone needs to talk or have any questions that I can help them with. Please feel free to PM me. Lorie
