Great memories, Jeff! Thanks for sharing.

No defining moments come to mind for me specifically. Indeed, many presents were opened and many thanks were given and much love was shared, just like many Christmases before!

The largest, and by far the best gift of Christmas 2009, was for our family to all be together for what is quite likely my wife’s brother’s last Christmas. We learned this past November that he is stricken with ALS, often referred to as Lou Gering’s Disease. The associated symptoms, present as early as late spring, have progressed rapidly. He is only a few months younger than I.

I only wish that I was just half as courageous as he!
Where all this began for me
