This morning while riding my bike enjoying what the morning brings
I was amazed as the sky was filled with what I call angel wings
The clouds were painting the sky today, they had something to tell me something to say
Because it was about the time, on the other side of the world a friend passed away
Goodbye to a long time friend
Larry he fought ALS right to the end
It has left an empty space, a sad heart, hard to comprehend
Life at a distance so, Not enough time did we spend
Your spirit was strong and amazing
Your younger life full, fearless and blazing
But your last years were with illness and pain
So rest in peace Larry, never to feel that again
Each day the sky paints us a picture of many things
Today it was for Larry, it was full of Angel wings
Our friend Larry Machula from Saskatoon in Canada has developed this disease.
Larry was once a vibrant, exciting, entrepreneurial personality. Larger than life, but unfortunately was struck down with this devastating disease.
Larry took up the challenge and then in turn challenged many celebrities one of which was the Rolling Stones.
Bill Wyman of the rolling stones accepted.
I then accepted the challenge of my good friend Trish from the UK.
Here are the video’s in sequence.
Bill Wyman accepting the challenge
I was unable to download the video of Trish accepting her challenge for some reason. Anyhow here is my acceptance of the challenged from her.
I will now be sending my donation direct to http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-larry-ride-again/194167. We are trying to raise enough money to purchase a van for Larry so that he is more mobile and of course this van will be passed on to others that are in need of such a vehicle to give them better quality of life.
