My name is Aaralyn Oakley-Wheeler, and lost my husband to the merciless disease of early onset Alzheimers/Picks Disease in December of 2009. Jim was a retired officer of the U.S. Marine Corp. A tall, straping handsome man. He was diagnosed in early March of 2006, upon finding out that he was having difficulty performing his job. He had retired for the Marines in 1995 and worked as an Infrastructure Analyst at DSCC (government facility). To say that my life stopped on a dime that day would be an understatement.

My father just passed away 3 weeks ago from Alzheimer's disease. I am his daughter...I was his caretaker for a year and half before he passed. His life was an active healthy life till this happened. We never knew what hit us. It was a slow and very long nightmare. It was heartbreaking and exhausting. It was enlightening yet hopeless. He was brave put powerless to stop his brain from dying a slow death. He was helpless and so were those who loved him. He would never again have a normal life....there was no more normal for him or those who cared for him.

My Mother will be 87 in June. She has had Alzheimers for 10 years. When we could not longer care for her at home, she was placed in a great facility for Alzheimer patients. Through the 10 years, my Mother has been so very happy, cordial, loves music, dances, and loves people. On the other hand, she knows not her family, knows not what she eats, where to go, where to stay, and has to be shown and helped with all aspects of her care. I wrote my grief down on paper, and wrote a song called "Fading Memories", had it recorded, and thought I could really do some good for Alzheimers.
