Ethan Andrews of Bennington Vermont died of ALS today, July 21, 2020. ALS is better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease and Ethan fought it for a year. He was Vermont's 2007 undefeated 103-pound JV wrestling champion at 32-0. I took this photo January 10, 2020 at the Andrews home. I wanted this specific shot of Ethan standing, out of his wheelchair, tall and strong, holding his newborn daughter Willow while surrounded by his wife and parents. Ethan was 30.

This one tugs at my heart, I have ALS but have been fortunate enough to get to see my children grown into adults and make some memories with my grandson. #11819914
