It's been 3 long years since she passed away and not one day survives without her on our minds. The strength, compassion, selfless love and resilience are just some of her characteristics that keep her memory living. The consistent smiiles, love and hugs she gave even as death was upon her made us all question life and death. The bonds, relationships and trusts she formed with everyone she came into contact with are still all holding today.
To say the past 3 years were easy ones for those she left behind would be a lie. As the matriarch of our family went back home to be with her LORD & SAVIOUR, our family unraveled, had it's up and down's, it's victories and defeats and even caused temporary strains however because of and with the same love she showed when she was alive we fought as she would to remind ourselves of the one fruit of the spirit she stood for.....LOVE.
While this was a disturbing setback we grew stronger as a family in supporting my mom and learning to deal with this disease. Unfortunately on December. 24th 2013 she lost her fight in battling ALS. She was surrounded by love from her family and friends.We are proud to say that our mother left us with a strong will, just the way she LIVED! Her faith and spirits were always positive. Our mother is and will forever remain one of our greatest inspirations to our family. We miss and love her dearly. What we would all give to just hear her sweet words of love and endearment.
Now that she is gone, we are responsible for sharing her love and legacy. Mom was a person with a huge giving and compassion heart. I remember stories of her willing to extend a helping hand whether it was financially or offering someone a place to stay- this is what Team Hussey is based off of. We all have that little bit of Vilma Hussey in us and it's time to share what she shared with us. We want to help other people and families affected by ALS by extending a hand just like Vilma did and by loving on other people. So I ask, please donate to our cause and help us reach our goal so that we can help others fight against ALS!
