My husband and I would also like to wish everyone a wonderful christmas. When I was a little girl I used to get so excited about santa claus, I remember making my little list and handing it to my mother. She would smile at me and promised me santa would recieve it in time for christmas. The years have past and every christmas I chuckle because I now make a list but it is the grocery list but I do have a christmas wish, with all my heart I wish for a christmas miracle for all who are suffering with this horrible disease and their families. I wish with all my heart that santa arrives with the most beautiful gift ever recieved by anyone, the gift of a cure. I know I am not that little girl anymore who once wanted a doll, a sled or a bike. I am now the woman who wants my loved one to be able to ride a bike again, climb on a sled and go for the best ride down the hill and just be able to hug again. My husband wish you all a wonderful christmas and please know you are all in our hearts and we hope and wish for a christmas miracle for ALS. I would like like to say thank you, you are all a wonderful and kind group of people. MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Dear Santa

Hi all and Merry Xmas. I wanted to share the following letter written to Santa by my son. It was written on Dec 4, 1992. I thought it was worth sharing. He got 4/5 marks at school.

"Dear Santa:
Hi, how are you doing? I am doing o.k., I guess. It has been a whole year since the last time I spoke with you. We should keep in better contact.

So how's things up in the north. Aroung here, it has snowed a few times. One time there was so much snow, so my friends and I had snowball fights and went to the hills and had wars on G.T.'s. As a matter of fact, it is snowing as I am writing this letter.

I don't know if you remember, but today is my birthday. You probably remembered didn't you!

This year I hope to see Super Nintendo, Street Fighter, and a walkman under my tree. I also want my dad to get a new job that actually pays him on a regular basis! I also want my aunt to have the best Christmas ever and live the rest of her life in peace. She is dying from A.L.S., known as Lou Gerigs illness. And I also want my grandma to also have a great, first Christmas in heaven. She also died recently from A.L.S.

Thanks for reading my letter!

Your friend.
