Dearest George,

My best guess is that you cannot receive this message, but here goes anyway.

Four years tomorrow that you died.  People are still reading your blog, so your thoughts and words never die.

You were a man of real courage and I will write my tribute to you on my blog.

Miss you always....and love you forever.

Mom

  1. I guess it's not so strange that I dreamt of you and George last night. :*(

  2. To George's mom - I have only recently read George's blog here. His entries, coupled with all of the moving postings on your blog, are truly unforgettable. George seems to be a reflection of your strength and courageousness. I send you my sincere gratitude for your grace and for continuing to share a connection to your admirable, amazing son, George. I promise I will always remember both of you.

  3. I remember your son from MS circles and check back each year to see your note. He was so courageous. Your family remains in my prayers.

    1. Thank you for remaining so loyal. Yes, he was a very courageous and determined man. Some think he did not try hard enough to endure his deterioration, but they are wrong. He fought a war that could not be won, and he chose to decide his destiny. I loved him so much but to this day, stand firm in my belief that he had the right to live or die as he wanted.

  4. Hilda,
    I think of George so often and I miss his blog.
    But that is just me being selfish. I am so glad that he doesn't have to fight this battle anymore.
    I'm so sorry your healthy George isn't here for you and his family to love and enjoy.
    I'm holding on to the hope that we will all meet again in God's Kingdom in His perfect world where there is no more death or suffering.
    Til then .....
    Thoughts of you and the Greek!

    1. Dee,
      Often wonder how you are doing.
      George has been so prominent in my mind this week. More so than usual.
      I am reading a book called "Pretend to be Dancing" by Diane Chamberlain. The Dad in the book has MS as bad as George's was. It is so perfectly portrayed that I am in tears. Not to the end yet, but makes me wonder how many people ever bothered to ask George how bad it was and how he was coping. He lost all that mattered to him beyond the physical...his marriage, children, job and independence.
      That was why he died. I hope he found what he was looking for.
      Take care,
      Hilda
