On Sunday our family team participated in the MS Walk once again in memory of my cousin Connie who died of MS complications twenty years ago. Connie and I were the same age and good friends as well as cousins. It was hard to witness the devastating impact of MS on Connie and her family. Raising money for MS research is one way for our family to honor Connie’s memory and try to make a difference for others who also struggle with MS.
I always enjoy the visits I have with my cousins and their families as I walk. A big thank you to my Uncle Dave, Connie’s Dad, who once again footed the bill for a family lunch at the Beachcomber restaurant after the walk.
