Why do bad things happen to great people?
He was amazing, going to church every day, and praying, and doing stuff with his kids. He helped my dad on whatever my dad needed help on. And now he has Lou Gehrig's, a disease no one has ever survived. And his wife and two kids (1 is in college and the other just graduated high school.) are trying desperately to make money, because they have to add a bunch of things to their house so he can move around. It costs a lot of money and his wife has to work like triple-overtime, and the daughter was in France for a school thing, and the son is moving to Mount Washington for a job, and all I want to do is help, but there's nothing I can do!


I'm so sorry about your dad's friend. That must be so hard. My condolences. :(
I feel stupid venting now after reading that. It was nothing important.

I'm not sure anybody can every vent again and it be enough.

For a moment there, I thought you said your dad, and I was really sad.
I can't believe this happens to people that are the least to deserve it.
Make sure he gets all out condolences, okay? Even though we don't know you, much less your dad's friend, it's still really really sad.

Thank you both.
We've talked about it, my dad and I, and he can't get better.
He's already wearing an oxygen tank mask, and he can't move really.
It affects your muscle, so he can't move his legs.
He's trying to work from home, but he can barely move his arms.
And pretty soon, he won't be able to swallow. So he will get feeding tubes.
Next, he can't talk.
And finally, he can't...breathe.
Okay, I'm tearing up writing this.
I will update you guys if anything happens.

I'm sorry too Derek.
It's hard when someone close to you has something happen like that.
I don't really know what else to say...

Oh My gosh that's awful. But at least Dallas is one of those places famous people actually go to.
Nobody comes to Delaware. :lol: I'm sure he'll come back for promoting Eclipse.

I really need the courage to tell a funny/smart/considerate/amazing person how much I like them.

That's how I was, too. I've still only been to 2 schools. It's nerve-racking, but don't worry, you'll get the hang of it! :D

I'm nervous. And excited. And I want to scream.
