The episode started with a girl coming in to get a dress for her wedding which was in one month- when asked why she was waiting til so last minute she said it was because her fiance was just diagnosed with ALS 🙁 She also said she had a strict $1000 budget, so of course she then fell in love with a $2,000+ dress…. When informed of the cost of the dress she loved she was sad, but Lori, the store owner, surprised her and told her she was giving her the dress and the accessories! So sweet! (Cry)
Cut to the end of the episode where they show the couple’s vows- the husband says, “Thank you for taking me as I am. I promise to fight to stay with you as long as God will allow.” (Sob)
So young to be diagnosed with such a terrible disease… My grammy died from it as well… It’s a terrible way to go- at least he’ll go knowing he’s loved I suppose…

That’s so sad 🙁 My grandmother has ALS, it happened pretty suddenly and its a really horrible disease for the person and their loved ones.

@hopefloats: I’m so sorry to hear about your grandmother… 🙁 Instead of favors for our wedding, my Fiance and I decided we’re going to do a donation board to 4 of the causes that are most important/personal to us which guests can choose to place them name tag under so we donate in their name- ALS will be one of them for me because of my grammy. Hopefully one day they’ll figure out a way to stop it, or at least ease it’s progession/to the pain of the sufferers.

@Ms.Sugarsnap: I refuse to watch SYTTD because of my hatred of Kleinfeld but that'[s such a sweet story. I would have been crying during it.

I’m such a sap, I got tears just reading this. I’ll have to catch that one next time it’s on. Mr.ND will think I’m a nut, but this is just too sad/sweet.

I recently had an uncle die of ALS. When she said ALS I broke down completely, and I had pretty much recovered and then Lori gave her the dress and all the stuff! I bawled so hard then! My heart goes out to that bride!
