The Gift of ALS

Dear Friends & Family,

If you see someone surrounded by friends, immersed in their family and cherishing the little things in life like the warm sun on their face or a beautiful sunset, they may have ALS. This disease is a gift in a way. We are lucky to be able to spend this time surrounded by people who truly care. Each moment is precious and everyone around us knows that. When we are with friends our laughs are real, our tears are genuine and our connections are deep. Knowing that your time with friends is limited makes each moment that much more special. We are deeply moved by those who choose to surround us at what could be such a sad time. We could let this disease rule our lives and alienate us from seeing people and going places. But, honestly, we haven't had time to let the disease take over our lives, we have too many friends and too many plans.

It has been great to be home with Curt and not have to go to into work over the holidays. We shared many laughs, thoughts, walks and visits with friends. We appreciate all that life has to offer and all that we have. We are blessed beyond belief and we will not let ALS define us. Meanwhile we will cherish the time we have left and savor each moment.

Thank you for your prayers and support. Please keep praying for a miracle.

Cindy, Curt, Clarissa, Cayden & Corbin

Corbin went motorcycle riding for the weekend with Jim & Colleen.
He had a great time. This photo was taken in the little town of Randsburg.
Clarissa & Lauren, ready for New Year's Eve!

Paul & Bill were able to get Curt into the front seat of Bill's Jeep for some off-roading around Acton!
He had a great time with the guys!

Just like the old days!

We had a great time at The Popp's house with Bill & Rae Lynn and kids and dogs!
Thanks Paul & Lisa!
