My father was diagnosed with ALS in January 2011. He passed away on August 4. this forum has been helpful in answering questions and getting information about what to expect and why. I am very thankful for everyone who takes the time to post to this board and who shares their experiences.

My father was a very stubborn and determined man and he fought this disease HIS way and he faced his life and his death as he wanted it. He passed away at home in my parents bedroom with his family around him.

He was a wonderful father, husband, grandfather, and great grandfather and friend. He will be missed.

I'm so sorry to hear of your father's passing. I'm glad you and your family were with him when he passed. I'm sure he felt all your love. Prayers to you and your family for strength to get through this difficult time together.

Take care.

After I hit the "like" button I really thought that doesn't sit right. What I "like" about your post is how this forum has been helpful and what I really "like" about it is that your father did it his way and had his family with him.

I'm sure he feels you are a terrific son as you did he a father, What courage it takes to come on line and tell people you never met everyone would agree I'm sure it is greatly appreciated. I hope you and your family are finding peace after his passing in putting things together. Thank you again

I am extrmely sorry to hear of your loss. Prayers for you and your family are going out this evening and tomorrow evening in my Bible Study. I am sure that you know that he did not, and will not suffer with this disease as many of our husbands and wives will. May God give your family the strength they need to get through.
