{ALS: It's About Loving Someone}


I haven't been able to sit down unless I am feeding Ryder today so his 1 month post will have to wait until tomorrow - again! :) But that's ok. This is a post I am been meaning to publish for days now.

I posted about Kyle on my birthday in 2014 when the Ice Bucket Challenge was going around. Jeff and I worked with him year ago and his brother Justin and best friend Chris were our wedding photographers. 

Kyle had ALS and passed away on the 22nd of November at the age of 33. 
He was the same age as me. Life just isn't fair at times. And ALS is a cruel cruel and ugly disease.

Here's a video [his brother] Justin posted a few days after he passed away. It's a beautiful tribute.

And Chris wrote this post that is also worth reading.

Kyle fought hard and definitely left this world a better place. I don't have the right words to finish this post so just read and watch the above and enjoy your day because we are SO lucky to live it.

Oh wow. That is so incredibly heart breaking. Life is not just not fair. What a beautiful tribute to his brother. There is a lot of wisdom to absorb from that and it's a great reminder to not take anything for granted and to always remember how lucky we are to have our health.

Goodness... I just bawled my eyes out. I remember your post on him last year. I bawled then. I'm so sad he has passed away and yet he is in a new body one that moves and works. So sad he's so young. :( Really always makes you put things back into perspective. xox Love ya

That was a beautiful video. I remember this post from last year. It put a face to the Ice Bucket Challenge for me. I'm so sorry to you, and his family, for the loss of the life of the party.
