My Husband Touched So Many Lives

Socorro H. Salinas, California

Henry J. Hughes 2/5/56 - 10/18/2010 Forever in Our Hearts - My husband never let this disease stop him from loving life. He carried joy in his heart and made people smile, everywhere he went. He touched many lives in his short time here. He was diagnosed September 2008 and lost mobility of his legs a few months later. It was a brave fight, and he will forever be my hero. Our children rallied around him during this time, and despite ALS, we have many beautiful memories. We miss him, and not a moment goes by that I don't think of him. There is a hole in my heart from losing him, but my life was changed because he was a part of it. I strive to carry the joy that he had everyday to honor him. We will never give me on this fight for a cure to ALS. We love and miss you; and the beat goes on....
