For our American friends there is a March of Faces at http://www.march-of-faces.org/ Pals can have pictures posted on a banner to raise awareness and put a face on this disease.

Merry Christmas from David and AL

David and I and our families would like to wish all our members and others that come here seeking information and solace, a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I know it is hard to look forward but just maybe 2008 will bring better news on the research front. God bless.

It is wonderful to see the support and encouragement we can offer one another. I am still amazed at the power of the internet-that prefect strangers can create such warmth and understanding. Thank you one and all for helping make this forum so sucessful, in that regard. Cindy

Hi Irma,
I am holding my own in the fight with ALS. Still no dog, but hope to get one soon. Going to the county hospital tomorrow to sign up with them. Hopefully they can assist me. Got nothing for Christmas, but this is not unusual. Have not for years now. Merry Christmas to you too !

Hi delb,
I too have been thinking about you.Glad to hear you are going to try to get some help. You still have all of us for Christmas .Material things really don't matter anyway. love, hope & the real meaning of Christmas are all that any of us really need. I went to the cemetery today to tell my son Merry Christmas.He loved Christmas. I miss him so very much but I know he isn't hurting anymore( CANCER) & he is in heaven with our Lord. So please take care & know that we are still pulling for you.God Bless.

Hello all, my dad did not quite make it to Christmas last year, but he stayed with us as long as he could, until the whole family was together with him. He always was a person who brought people together. He's done that yet again this year even though he is with us in spirit, not in physical person. Because he died at this time of year, we all felt the need to be together again and people made the journey to gather at my house for the holiday. We have started a special tradition that was suggested in a grief group my mom attends. We made a remembrance wreath with fir branches and four candles, each representing part of the experience of having loved so deeply and no longer having that person with us. I chose a blue candle for grief, a purple candle for courage to face the loss, a gold candle for the memories we cherish, and a red candle for the deep and never-ending love.
