Access denied, living with MS / Herrad Ford

News reached us in the evening of 18 November 2015 that Herrad Ford, who lived in Amsterdam, Holland, had passed away after a short illness. She had been suffering from multiple sclerosis for years, but it was pneumonia that eventually claimed her life. Herrad had been keeping a blog for about 9 years until last August, chronicling the effects MS had been having on her life.

Another friend lost from the ravages of MS,please remember with me our dear friend Herrad,whose blog Access denied, living with MS has been an inspiration to myself and to so many others with the damn evil disease. For those of you who did not know her please visit her blog,
I first came across this blog, just after I was diagnosed. Richie her husband/carer and her were both kind enough to leave comments on my blog after I posted, especially if I was having a bad time with the MS, and Richie as a carer understood a lot of my concerns with caring for mum. Herrad succumbed to a chest infection/pneumonia aggravated by her MS - which is killed by MS as far as I am concerned.

I am deeply upset, and I ask you to remember Richie in your thoughts,and for those of you who do,prayers. Keep strong mate.Herrad was an amazing,brave lady.

Thankyou for reading, take care all, Mort

Their love for each other knew no bounds. Ritchie was such a caring and loving husband to her. I know he is going to be devastated at losing her. May he remember happier times instead of this deep loss. Rest in peace Herrad. You were a determined and tenacious lady at fighting against all odds. No more pain. At last!

I read her blog a long time, but had not heard she died. Her blog reflected her great courage.
