Father's Day

My dad has Alzheimer's and for the last 4 years has been in a facility devoted to the care of those so afflicted. It's an awful, insidious disease which robs both the victim and the family. This is not how I pictured Daddy's retirement years with me. We were going to garden and talk and walk. Needless to say, we do none of that.

In honor of Father's Day and Daddy, I wrote an article for our local internet newspaper. The editor made it the lead-off.

Read and meet my daddy.
