  •  I, too, have a bear of a father. (8+ / 0-)

    I'm watching him, in his 80s now, lose more of his strength, but never his dignity. But the hardest thing for Dad is watching my mother slip away piece by beautiful piece, to that sonofabitch disease, Alzheimer's.

    I understand & appreciate your loss, as I've been preparing myself as best I can for mine. Thanks for providing me with your example.

    Keuka is perhaps my favorite of the Finger Lakes. I live 3 miles north of Honeoye Lake. For me, there is no more beautiful place on Earth than the Finger Lakes region of NY. I hope your family still has the property.

    Kudos to you, JR, for being a good son above and beyond the call. You do your father proud. You will always have him with you, as so much of you was shaped by him.

    Thanks for sharing him with us.
