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.

My father has been very sick with Alzheimer's Disease and/or Related Dementia, increasingly since 2008.  Since that time I decided to begin treating him with music and, in May 2011, to begin videotaping sessions with him.  These initial interviews have blossomed into a 2+ years and runing feature film project which I wish to share with everyone to give hope, solidarity and to increase awareness and speed of cure for these terrible diseases.

My grandma was diagnosed with this disease almost ten years ago. On January of this year, we lost our family matriarch. she was the glue that kept us together. My parents moved my family to Louisiana about 23 years ago. The hardest part for me, was that my mom was not able to be there for her mom, even though we tried to visit often. So the care was left to my aunts who lived close to her. After the disease took over, it was hard to see my grandma, because i remember how she used to be. My grandma was one tough cookie. She had been alone since my grandpa passed away in 72.
