I talked to 32 year old Roger Crockett who hails from the Upper Northwest Wednesday evening and have decided to pitch his racing program while at the same time bringing more light to a very important cause. Being a veteran of the Air Force and losing a close friend to ALS, I think we can spread this message because ALD (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is dehumanizing and it kills a person.
For me, finding out Floyd was kind of bitter sweet. You see he was found out to have this dreadful disease for a few months. Sadly, I remember when he fell outside going to a Doctor’s appointment. It was too long after that that his arms were gone too and before you knew it he could no longer hardly talk and died peacefully a few weeks later.
Was this a coincidence finding him in that way? If it was one then it was a good thing. Although the bitter pill of death had swallowed him up and he now sings the angels, together in peace with heavenly bodies.
His family and especially Bim his wife and daughter Wendy. Wendy told him how he always made time for her and misses him so much. Bim also invited me to stay if I became incapacitated. But my problems are not so important to this dialogue.
For more information about this disease and Floyd please go to my ‘about me’. Even the site itself is named after a song, from an artist he liked.
