ironically...

Posted to Utterances




... my father died of ALS ... Lou Gehrig's disease.... as Hawking has.....

i have often wondered if there was a connection given my Dad's profession....

Hawking has a new book out, btw...

he is tremendously beautiful in his love for life and his humor and wit are amazing.... he chose the route of a feeding tube.... we discussed all this with Dad while he was dying and Dad chose to say goodbye instead .....

"nothing is easy".... my father used to always say... i will remember him for so much, including also his humor and wit, but that phrase will live with me as so very simple yet so very profound
