Recently,  I became associated with The ALS Foundation (Lou Gehrigs Disease), an organization that is working vigorously to generate funds for research to wipe out this debilitating disease.  At one of their major fund raisers of the season, teams comprised of corporate sponsor's personnel vied with one another to see who could raise the most money.  As the final results were announced, a team member of the winning organization draped himself in the ALS Foundation's flag while making a gesture heavenward almost as if to say, "We're gonna beat this with your help?"......I can only pray that this is true.....the sooner, the better.


  1. Amen, Brother! In our family, it's Parkinson's and Lupus that are the primary neuro-nasties, and I am solidly in the camp of all who find such diseases well worth defeating as soon as we possibly can. :)

    1. It is so great to be back in touch with you. How often I think of you and Richard, and there's still a huge void in the back pew at the Low Altar there at Incarnation. We had some pretty good conversations during choir rehearsals, didn't we? Take care and stay in touch. My best to you both!!!!

    2. Hope you might be in town when R conducts the St. John Passion on April 1st at Incarnation! Would love to see you. :D Love from both of us right back. xo
