Although I never posted on this website, I was a regular visitor. My husband and best friend was diagnosed Jamuary 26, 2008 with bulbar onset. He passed away July 29, 2008. This website has given me strength, hope, joy and sadness. My husband's name was Cyril Woolford, he was 63 years old and a native of Guyana. He served in the Royal Air Force when he was a young man, became an electrical engineer and then started and taught at a choice school. We have three children and one grandson and we will miss him very much. God's speed and pray for a cure to this horrible disease. Maggie:

I know why you didnt post i read for a long time before i wrote, and now I am glad I did, I get more answers here than I do from the doctors, the people here are very wise, and the best listeners, so talk as much as you like now.
My thoughts and prayers with you and your family

Maggie, I am sorry for your loss. I wish that you had posted earlier. I have been to Guyana 3 times with friends. My friends brother in law was in the RAF as well. Possibly they knew each other. It is a small world we live in. Take care.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. My husband (whose birthday happens to be Jan. 26) was diagnosed in Dec. 07. He has no use of his arms or legs and his speech is going very fast. Understanding him is becoming very difficult. It's so painful to watch him struggle to say something to me only to give up because the words just won't come and it exhausts him to try. I imagine you went through all this as well and now you must grieve his passing. Please know that my prayers are with you and all of us who have to suffer with our loved ones' disease. God bless you all. ML
