Miles for Monte
May 12, 2018 was a joyous milestone in our family, as it was the day my youngest daughter, Elizabeth, brought home her second precious baby boy from the hospital. Charlie Grant is my fourth grandchild and has already brought endless amounts of happiness.
Before this year, May 12 has been a difficult day for our family as it marks the anniversary of my husband Monte's passing from ALS. There seems to be poetic justice that we can now find reason for joy on May 12 while still honoring Monte's memory. I would do anything to have Monte meet his beautiful grandchildren. Since that is not possible, my daughters, Emily and Elizabeth, and I are committed to teaching them about his zany sense of humor, strong work ethic, zest for life, and most of all, his love for his family. One way we do this is by walking as Team Miles For Monte in the annual Les Turner ALS Foundation's Walk for Life. We will be doing so again on September 29 and invite you to support us by walking with us or celebrating Monte with a donation.
We thank you for your continued support,
