I met Debbie a couple of years ago. Soon thereafter she began to have a limp. Her boss sent her to get an MRI, They believed she had a stroke. Months later her symptoms were getting worse. At this time I was unemployed. Suddenly I got this job that provides medical equipment.

It started with a cane, then moved to a walker…she was getting worse. I took her to the U of L hospital in Louisville, KY. We got bad news…she had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). She needed lots of medical equipment. Just so happened that I could get all the equipment on loan. She had no insurance and no money. It was a God send. Eventually she came to the point where she needed someone there 24 hours a day. Just so happened that my son came to see me after 20 years. He found this young lady and she moved in. She was so awesome…always look out for Deb.

We took care of, Deb to the very end. She passed 2 weeks ago tomorrow.

I believe that God brought us all together for this horrible disease. She passed at home right next to me.

Truly, I am heartbroken at the loss of her, but I am thankful for bringing her to my life and at the same time providing love for Deb as she needed it.
