Ailee,

I don't think we need to say goodbye...I could never shut the door in my George's face...I like how this song describes our feelings.

Such a beautiful song, Ailee ~ it just takes my breath away. Thank you for sharing!

Here are the lyrics:

The Promise (I'll Never Say Goodbye)

Lyrics by David Grover

A love for people all around us...
...You and I shall be forever.
Say goodbye,
when I can barely say goodnight.
If I can hardly take my eyes from yours,
how far can I go?

Walk away,
the thought would never cross my mind.
I couldn't turn my back on Spring or Fall,
your smile least of all.

When I say always,
I mean forever.
I trust tomorrow as much as today,
I am not afraid to say I love you.
But I promise you,
I'll never say goodbye.

We're dancers,
On a crowded floor.
While other dancers leave from song to song,
our music goes on and on.

On and on.
And if I ever leave your arms,
I really would have traveled everywhere.
For my world is here with you.

When I say always,
I mean forever.
I trust tomorrow as much as I do today.
I am not afraid to say I love you.
And I promise you,
I'll never say goodbye.

How could I ever say goodbye?

Butch,

I was my Bob's caregiver too for over four years. I'm still not convinced that

his ALS DX was correct, nevertheless his illness followed the same destructive

path that eventually took his life. I'm still so very mad at doctors, pharmacueticals, home health workers, and all those friends and relatives that

so willingly gave unsolicited advice and yet never offered to give of themselves.

Sorry for the loss of precious Mary may she live on within you.

Ailee,

I'm so very sorry.

My wife's ALS was altogether misdiagnosed at Yale... A top facility in the country. First it was her diabetes... Severe neuropathy, then her heart, then Parkinson's, then MS, and then finally a late stage ALS diagnosis. This past October. Her Drs believe she had it for a couple years, but she threw all of herself... Physically mentally and emotionally into caring for her brother who passed in May 2013 and then his young wife, our SIL, who passed in Sept 2013. Her Drs believed that throwing herself into caring for them overshadowed the diagnosis of ALS sooner.

I was angry at this misdiagnosis. But I just couldn't be. I had to focus all my love devotion care and time to the little time that remained. And so I did just that.

I am also very upset at relatives opinions and comments that are very unsolicited.

I pray you find some peace in your heart that your Bob is no longer suffering. Just as my Mary is no longer suffering.

Butch

I am so sorry you both went through the misdiagnosing. Since there is nothing that can be done for ALS, the end result likely would have been the same except you would have had more time to mentally prepare and not wasted time/effort with the wrong diagnosis. I don't blame you for feeling angry.
