Did you know that more than 5 million people in America live with Alzheimer's every year? Their families care for them as best they can, and many, like my dad end up in a nursing home or a hospital as they lose all of their mental faculties. It is truly "the long goodbye" and for us it was the most difficult, awful ordeal we have endured as a family.
You can join us at this vigil without leaving your home by "lighting a candle" on the Alzheimer's Association website. We've set up a special memorial page in memory of my dad. You can find it by clicking HERE, and you can donate on-line in his memory so that this cruel disease might yet be eradicated. And please sign the guest book on the memorial page.
Thank you so much!
