- Loved one DX
My dad was diagnosed in February 2007 with ALS. He passed away on March 3, 2008 at the very young age of 59. For those who have read my post in the past know that my daddy was my hero, he was the dad that all my friends envied that I had. My parents were married for 39 years and she is completely lost without him right now. I miss my dad terribly, it's just unbareable at best. Even though I am so very sad he isn't here with us, I am so greatful that my dad was able to tell us he loved us and hug us until the very end. My dad handled this disease with such grace and dignity, never letting the disease get him down for very long. He always joked about the way he had to accomodate the little things we take for granted, like being able to put your socks on with a drop foot...I feel like my heart will never be the same, I will always be a "daddy's girl" and can't wait until I am with him again in a place where there is no such thing as this horrible disease called ALS. Thank you all for the support over the past year, I wouldn't have made it thru all of this without the support each of you provide daily.
