From the archives: Lessons in Life

From the June 2008 archives: Jenny Hoff is losing the use of her limbs. She has been diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. But she is gaining the friendship of young people from her Spokane Valley neighborhood. The children give their time and efforts to attend to chores around Hoff’s home. Hoff, in return gives the kids lessons in life.
