Tom’s Story

Thank you so much for visiting! We will be posting updates in the journal section, but wanted to use this space on the site to let our dad share his story. As you all know, the journey with ALS has been a long one, with many hard times as well as many blessings. Please visit http://livingwithalsbytomswift.blogspot.com/ to read some of the many articles and posts Dad has written over the years.

Friends and Family, 

A memorial service will be held at 3pm on Monday, January 28th, at St James Episcopal Church in Hendersonville. The service will be followed by a reception at the church.

We have posted Dad's last article, as it appears in the St James newsletter, to his blog. You can view it at http://livingwithalsbytomswift.blogspot.com/.

His final article, which is only slightly different from the article in the St James newsletter and on his blog, will appear in the Asheville Citizen-Times on Sunday. The editor Dad worked with most closely at the paper wanted to honor Dad's life, and asked the two of us to send in a collection of pictures of Dad over the years. The photos are on the Asheville Citizen-Times website.  

Dad's obituary will appear tomorrow in the Asheville Citizen-Times, the Hendersonville Times News, and on Monday in the Tryon Daily Bulletin. 

Thank you all for your kind and loving messages over the last few days.

Love,
Emma and Catherine
