Virtual Moment of Silence (Two Moms, Co-Blogging)

This month, instead of a pair of essays, Ivy Scherbarth and I are calling for a Virtual Moment of Silence. We invite you, our Duchenne/Becker Muscular Dystrophy community, to use the comments area here to list the names of the loved ones you remember and miss. We honor all who have been touched by Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy: the brave men and boys, women and girls who lived with Duchenne all their lives; the carrier mothers and sisters; the kind doctors who made a real difference; the beloved service dog who served faithfully until the end.

Rest in Peace. You are our heroes and we celebrate your spirit.

Pat Furlong, Founding President, CEO

Christopher Furlong, Patrick Furlong and Peter Weisman for without them I would not have their wonderful mothers to show me the way!

Robert Brown, Frank Brown, Jr., Harold Brown. My great-great uncles.

Margaret and Frank Brown, their parents. I think of you often.
Emma Brown Moore. Duchenne carrier, sibling.
Brownie Moore Rawl. I miss you, Grandma.

Dr. Maxwell. You knew that a wheelchair was the key to life even though no one else had ever seen one.

Josh Winheld. Your writing inspired mine. In my mind we'll always be "the same age."
