Thank you Dr. Olney for all of your research into this awful disease. My mother died in 2010 after a 10+ year battle with ALS. She fought so hard but in the end, as is always the case, ALS won. I hope that someday there will be a cure so no one else has to suffer. Dr. Olney, may you rest in peace in the presence of God. May your family find comfort in their memories of your life and your life's work.

I first read of Dr. Olney's courageous battle against ALS in a copy of People magazine. I just happened to pick it up at the Lahey Clinic. He has been in my thoughts and prayers ever since. I had just been told that I had Cancer of the Prostate. They also told me, "This is how we will fight it." Forty five radiation treatments later, traces of the cancer were gone. I also thought of an unknown person who, on that same day, was heading home after being told they had ALS. They were told to get their affairs in order, there is no cure. Some day, through the efforts of Dr. Olney, and others like him, those with ALS will also hear, "This is how we will fight it." God bless Dr. Richard Olney, his family and fellow workers.

My Mom died of ALS in 2004, 18 months after getting her diagnosis at the University of Utah. Dr. Richard Olney and all those who study ALS are dedicated and courageous in researching this disease. Their service in helping those who suffer from it and those who love and support them through it helps in understanding and giving dignity to those whose bodies are losing everything, yet their minds are completely alert and aware. I am forever in awe of the love and dedication that I witnessed from those who are studying and fighting this battle. My thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Olney's family. Your sacrifice has made a difference!

Dr. Olney, like Dr. Salk, and the many unnamed medical researchers are the true real heroes of American society. They do so much for the rest of us and yet all too often they do not get/receive the thanks from our society they deserve. Thank you Dr. Olney. Rest in Peace.

May the God of all comfort be with Dr. Olney's family at this time of grief. May all his memories stay close to your heart. Psalms 46:1 Joanna
