Last week a dear friend of mine, who had been suffering the debilitating effects of MS for many years passed away. Even though he had been wheelchair-bound and finally bed-bound for a good part of his life, it was still a shock. He was an unforgettable character with a laugh that would reverberate from the rooftops and such an irrepressible spirit that despite his ever-weakening body there seemed to just be too much life in him for any illness to stop him living. It’s hard to imagine the strength that he, his amazing wife and 2 young children have shown over the years living with MS. Not once did I hear them ever complaining about the hand they were so unfairly dealt. Chris will be really missed. My love goes out his family.
