PHOENIX (CBS5) –
The friends we remember perpetually are people who dump all to assistance when we need it most, even during a holidays.
Charles Reuss found this out when a good crony helped by making his debilitating illness a bit some-more easier.
Not prolonged ago, Reuss was a brisk male prepared to take on retirement.
“ALS, it’s a terrible disease. we year ago we wasn’t like this,” Reuss pronounced with hampered speech.
ALS is a engine neuron illness that is hidden his ability to travel and talk.
A motorized chair would assistance him get in and out of his wheelchair until a engine burnt out during Christmastime.
It would take a while for support groups to help. Then his crony Al Piña stopped by for a visit.
“He’s a really special friend,” he said. “He is like a son to me.”
Piña worked with Reuss during Abrazo Arrowhead sanatorium for years.
When he listened his crony was in need, he scaled behind his Christmas present skeleton and bought Reuss a new motorized chair.
“I saw it was a crony in need and took it on myself,” he said. “I didn’t design any recognition.”
Piña, medium as expected, pronounced he does not know any opposite and this was a training impulse for his son to witness.
“You can’t take it with you,” he said. “It’s a pleasure we got in my heart and in my essence of assisting someone else”
Friends come and go, though once and a while a few mount out for doing something conspicuous while awaiting zero in return.
Reuss pronounced people like Piña don’t come around that mostly in this world.
“More people like him, we wouldn’t have a problems we have,” he said.
