I have just heard that a good friend of mine was diagnosed with motor neurone disease on Friday. He is 47 and has just retired from being a fireman for twenty seven years. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. His life was on course, he got married to his long time partner two years ago, he had made lots of plans for the future. He is strong, he will cope with the coming months, hopefully years. How we all will is another matter. It may be a cliche, but we can never take things for granted, can we. But we must enjoy life, everyday.
