My wonderful brother has passed away. He was diagnosed May 17/2007. He left us on the morning of November 15/2008. He was 48 years old. He was married to Lori for 25 years. They have 2 wonderful children, Justin,19 and Jenna,17. Wes was the most wonderful, kind, caring man! If you ever needed anything he was there. He was everyone's friend. I want to thank his family and my brother Dale for taking such good care of him! He was able to stay at home until the last week. He wouldn't of been able to do that without these wonderful, caring people looking out for him.I will greatly miss his wonderful sense of humour and his warm smile. I am really missing the daily emails.

Thanks for all the help.

I am a new member but have been a lurker for a while. Just wanted you to know you all have been a great source of information and support without even trying. My brother had ALS, I believe it was called bulbar? He lost his battle on Nov. 15, 2008. Thanks again for the support.

I'm so sorry about your brother. He was so young to have this thing.

That is a lovely tribute. I send condolences to his wife and kids, and the rest of his family. Such a sad loss.

KeeKer,
You have painted the most wonderful picture of your dear brother for us. I hope you can carry his memory with you everywhere and find comfort.
I'm so sorry about your losing him and about the suffering that all PALS endure while progressing through this horrible disease.
May you find comfort in knowing that your brother is resting peacefully now, finally rid of the daily struggle.
Blessings and all good wishes to you and your family. May the empty space left by your brother be filled in some measure by remembrances of his goodness and sense of humor and warm smile.
Jane
