I lost my dear Dad on Marxh 22, 2013. He fought a hard fight and cheated death a few times. We were told he showed signs of Alzheimer's about six years ago. It is so hard to watch a loved one struggle with this disease and slowly take away his memory, dignity, and ability to function without assistance.
My Dad was very intelligent, owned his own business, could build anything and grow the best garden vegetables. He was very social, loved Johnny Cash and was often the life of the party playing air guitar.
