There is a very dear man who goes to my church... and has ALS. Lou Gehrig's disease. I don't know him except to say hello in passing... but friends of mine are close to him. They have told me wonderful stories about his character and personality.
The disease has progressed as it will.
In the morning, his loving family will kiss him good bye. His ventilator and feeding tube will be removed and he will be allowed to go home to the arms of his loving heavenly father.
...may there be mercy, peace and comfort for each of them.
