My wonderful dad won his battle with ALS and went to be with Jesus last Saturday, December 2nd. He never gave up, he fought the good fight until the very end. I thought I would be a puddle on the floor but actually was able to get up and speak at his service on Wednesday. He would have been so proud of me. I love my dad........

Your dad was proud of you ... always ... you simply don't know how much.

I'm sure he would have been very proud Gina. As I would of my own daughter.

The way you worded your post gave me a whole new perspective on the manner in which I looked at passing on. "won his battle" is a marvelous statement! Thank you for sharing that...

God bless

I'm Sorry

Gina...sorry to hear about your dad......I am a newbie to this site as well I don't use it as much as I should....my heart breaks for you...when I first read your newbie storey about how you felt about your dad when you found out about his ALS I can tell you that I feel the same way about my dad....he was diagnosed April/06 and every day he gets weaker....I put the smile on every day but my heart breaks .....my dad is only 57 and this is so hard to deal with every day.....but I am staying strong and trying to do as much as I can with him....I am a daughter of 3 and the oldest and sometimes I find it hard to cope myself and keep the younger two sisters strong.......

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family...

Lisa
