  •  What a loving tribute to your father (4+ / 0-)

    The vivid memories that you shared with us were both moving and humorous. I loved how your father dealt with the bully "Halloweeners" without even raising his voice.

    Alzeimers is such a cruel disease. I am glad that he was still able to experience joy in your presence even toward the end.

    I'm sure that you did more than you realize to help him over the his final years. But I know - it never seems like enough. I guess we just have to make peace with what we can do.

    _Let's dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that, and say a prayer for our country and for our people. Robert Kennedy_
