Local author writes about losing his wife to Huntington’s Disease

On the fateful day of March 29, 1983, Winnie and Clarence Vos of Rochester Hills heard the news that they had been dreading for years—Winnie had Huntington’s disease. They knew that the devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder had no cure and only one FDA-approved drug to relieve symptoms.
For the next eighteen years, the two would continue to share a life of joy and trials as Winnie progressively lost her ability to walk, talk, and eat. Through it all, Winnie retained her hope and faith in God. In “It’s Better to Laugh Than Cry,” Clarence Vos sharesItsBetterToLaugh the story of his marriage and his wife’s illness in the hopes that it will be a help and inspiration to those with Huntington’s and their loved ones. As he says, “Life brings trials, but God brings healing and peace.”
