Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Neal Rubin of the Detroit News,
Bobby Suvoy had Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and it was vicious. He’d been a boy who liked to swim and skate and catch fish, always looking for something to do. Now here he was at 16, paralyzed, with a breathing machine inflating his lungs.
Chris Terry was Bobby’s idol, his favorite hockey player. The team arranged for Terry to meet him, and it was a thrill; one of the few things Bobby could still do was smile, and he hardly stopped from the moment Terry walked in.
Then Terry dropped by the Suvoys’ house in Redford Township a few more times, on his own. And when Bobby died in early May, Terry came down from his home in Brampton, Ontario, for the funeral, driving four hours in his big green Isuzu Rodeo.
