One year ago today... well, yesterday now that it's so late, my younger sister (A.K.A. Beloved Aunt Amy to my cyberfriends of 8 years), was diagnosed with ALS. I didn't really know what Lou Gehrig's disease was, but I vividly remember looking it up online and being startled to learn that Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis begins with 'A.M.Y.'.
Please keep her in your thoughts, prayers, good karma fumes, or whatever positive forces you have at your disposal because I love her very much and there's like a kajillion people who feel the same way.
