"Will To Live"

 

As a young child, Will suffered from a series of debilitating strokes

and yet his weakness was met without intimidation, his illness without surrender.

His lifelong recovery was inspired by the encouraging spirit of his unyielding mother

who instilled within him the boiling desire to live strong and free beyond his physical limitations.

Blessed with uncommon grace and a will "tempered" by his family

he wrestled with many challenges and losses to emerge spiritually unscathed as a true giver.

He has brought to our Stroke Life Society his quiet dignity

and a gritty courage to prevail above all else.

The pleasure of his company with new friends

and his willingness to "pitch in" to help others as he strives to improve himself

underscores our core group purpose.

That the leaves of our minds gather to recognize the strong pulse in the lives of stroke survivors with the color to be shared with all.
