My wife, Clare, and I love to travel. Upon retirement, we flew across the Arctic Circle, strolled across the Great Wall of China and through Red Square in Moscow, and meandered among the giant tortoises in the Galapagos. But on one of our trips, I noticed Clare forgetting things, and these weren't mere "senior moments." She'd talk about two grandchildren, although we have four. Or she'd talk about our trip to France, though we'd never been there.

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.
