This year started off on a somber note for our Lingraphica family. Last week, we learned that another one of our User Group members, Nancy Mamis-King, had passed away. She was 84 years old. Nancy attended User Group meetings for more than 10 years and was one of the founding members of the group. She passed away peacefully surrounded by friends and family.

Sadly this past Thanksgiving, one of our User Group members, Richard Leung, suddenly passed away. He was 65 years old. Richard and his wife, Irene, had been attending the User Group for more than two years. Richard was a computer and electrical engineer at Lucent before suffering a stroke in 2010. Richard was diagnosed with aphasia after his stroke and found communication difficult. But that didn't stop him from living his life to the fullest.
When Lingraphica's Aphasia User Group met on December 9, our discussion eventually turned to the topic of favorite holiday traditions. Here's what a few members warmly recalled.
The holidays are upon us again, and that means holiday movie marathons on TV and holiday music played 24/7 on the radio. We recently asked our User Group what some of their favorite holiday songs and movies are. See what they had to say!
While everyday life can be stressful enough for persons with communication disorders, the holidays can add another layer of complication. With holiday parties and visits from family, there is no shortage of background noise from music and loud conversations, as well as pressure from others wanting to communicate. People with speaking challenges can still enjoy the holidays with the help of a few minutes of meditation each day.
